Tennessee’s new Apprentice Hunting License will become available on December 13, 2006 according to the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA).

The new Apprentice License will exempt a hunter, age 10 or older who falls within the hunter education requirement, from having to complete the mandatory hunter Education Course for the current license year.

The Apprentice License (Type 012) may be purchased for $11.00 at any hunting and fishing license agent. The license is valid from the date of purchase through the last day of February. This license may only be purchased once in the lifetime of the hunter.

While hunting, the apprentice hunter must be accompanied by a licensed adult at least 21 years of age, who is hunter education certified or otherwise exempt from the law. In addition to the apprentice license, the hunter must have other applicable licenses and permits.
