NASHVILLE --- Tennessee’s 2012-13 hunting and fishing licenses are now expired, as of the conclusion of Thursday, Feb. 28, 2013. The new 2013-14 licenses went on sale Feb. 18 and are valid through February 2014.
Licenses may be purchased at any TWRA regional office, license agents, or online at TWRA’s website: www.tnwildlife.org. Licenses may be purchased at the new TWRA mobile application link http://www.gotwra.org or by visiting the TWRA website and scanning the QR code. Licenses may also be ordered by telephone by calling 1-888-814-8972.
Resident licenses may be purchased by: persons who possess a valid Tennessee driver’s license; persons who have lived in Tennessee for 90 consecutive days with the genuine intent of making Tennessee their permanent home; military personnel on active duty in this state and their immediate families, who reside with them, regardless of resident status; students who are enrolled in a Tennessee school, college, or university for at least six months (Out-of-state driver’s licenses only accepted for military and student requirements). A Social Security number is required to purchase a Tennessee hunting or fishing license.
License sales provide the primary funding for the TWRA, which does not receive any funding from the state's general fund (i.e. state sales tax).
All licenses purchased by credit card will be charged a processing and handling fee. To expedite telephone orders, the caller should have ready the name, address, physical description, Social Security number, driver’s license number, TWRA ID number (if renewal), and credit card number.
Licenses are printed on a special tear-resistant, water-proof paper. In case of a lost license, duplicate licenses can be obtained from any TWRA license agent for a $7 fee.
