NASHVILLE --- The Jan. 26 deadline is approaching for applications for the 2011 Spring Turkey Quota Hunts, the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA) reminds all interested persons.
The application period began Dec. 15 and sportsmen need to take note of this year’s earlier deadline from previous years. The deadline in previous years was the second Wednesday in February, but has been changed this year to the last Wednesday in January.
Applications are available and will be accepted at any TWRA license agent, TWRA regional office, or online at the TWRA website at www.tnwildlife.org. Applications will not be accepted after 11:59 p.m. on Jan. 26. Mailed applications will not be accepted.
The areas available for the hunts are listed on the instruction sheets. Hunters have up to 12 choices, but will be drawn for only one. Applicants may not use the same hunt code more than once. There are a total of 19 hunts listed. No person may apply more than once.
A permit fee will not be charged to Annual Sportsman (Type 004), Lifetime Sportsman (Types 402-405) license holders or Senior Citizen Hunters (Type 166) with an Annual Senior Citizen Permit (Type 167), TWRA will pay the agent fee for these transactions. For all other license holders, the cost is $20 per permit, plus the agent fee. When applying at a license agent, hunters must remain at the location while the application is processed. Hunters will receive a receipt with a confirmation number when the application is complete.
