Tennessee’s gun season for deer an annual opening on the Saturday before Thanksgiving which this year falls on Nov. 22 for 2014-15. For the fourth year, sportsmen will find one continuous season that will continue through Jan. 4, 2015. The continuous season replaced the previously two segmented hunting seasons that were in place prior to 2011. Hunters are encouraged to review page 26 of TWRA’s 2014-15 Tennessee Hunting and Trapping Guide to make sure they are hunting legally. And anyone born on or after January 1, 1969 is required to carry proof of satisfactory completion of a hunter education class or be in possession of the Apprentice Hunting License (along with other required licenses) while hunting any species in Tennessee. For more information about Tennessee’s deer hunting seasons, refer to the 2014-15 Tennessee Hunting and Trapping Guide available at all license agents and TWRA regional offices in Jackson, Nashville, Crossville, and Morristown.
