NASHVILLE --- The successful applicants for the computerize drawing for the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency’s 2018-19 Wildlife Management Area waterfowl hunts and the statewide sandhill crane hunting seasons are now available. The results can be viewed at

In past years, successful waterfowl applicants have always received a “Notice of Intent” with which they declare their intention to hunt their assigned blind pool. TWRA is implementing an electronic method for the first time this year to successful applicants with an email address associated with their TWRA license account.          

In order to participate in the awarded waterfowl hunt, applicants must first submit an electronic Notice of Intent (NOI) by the designated deadline to the specific area. Applicants will have to navigate to and log into their customer profile. They will see a "Complete Form" button next to the Waterfowl Blind Reservation Quota Hunt Award. If participants do not confirm their hunt by the deadline date, their reservation will be cancelled.

After submitting the NOI, participants are reminded to print their awarded Quota Hunt Permit documents. This is the permit needed to hunt.  For information on obtaining NOI deadlines, detailed maps, GPS coordinates, and rules and regulations for the hunt, visit

The WMAs that had a computerized drawing for waterfowl hunts were Bogota, Gooch Unit E, White Oak-Lebanon Pond, Meeman-Shelby Forest, Thorny Cypress in West Tennessee and Candies Creek, Johnson Bottoms, Rogers Creek, and Yellow Creek units on Chickamauga WMA in East Tennessee.

For the statewide sandhill crane hunt, 637 applicants had the opportunity to be drawn and receive two tags. Persons who drew a tag at the sandhill crane event in August were not permitted to be drawn for a computerized sandhill crane tag.
