TWRA SUSPENDS IN-PERSON SERVICE AT OFFICES, ALL SERVICES ONLINE OR BY PHONE
In response to COVID-19 and in order to comply with social distancing recommendations from the CDC and Governor Lee, the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency is suspending in-person service at all TWRA offices. Until further notice offices will not be open for walk-in service. People can still call any office or email ask.TWRA@tn.gov,
Licenses and boat registration are available online 24/7/365 at www.GoOutdoorsTennessee.com and fishing is a great family-friendly activity that follows recommended social distancing guidelines. Spring turkey season will open April 4th statewide for hunting as well.
Following the Governor’s Executive Order, the TN Fish and Wildlife Commission has authorized Agency personnel to temporarily forgive those whose boats aren’t registered because of county office closures and the need to pay taxes on new boats. As such, it is advised that you keep a photo copy of your bill of sale in your vessel until such time that clerks reopen and taxes may be paid. This will allow you to present proof of ownership to an officer should you be stopped.
