Every Trip. Every Time. Front Seat and Back, 3) Put It Down. One Text or Call Could Wreck It All, 4) Stop Speeding Before It Stops You, and 5) No More Than One Passenger at a Time.
All 400 permits for Tennessee's second sandhill crane hunt are gone. They were issued at a hand-held drawing held Saturday in north Hamilton County. As a result, there are no leftover permits to issue this week at Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency regional offices. All persons issued a sandhill crane permit must pass an internet-based crane identification test to make sure hunters know the difference between sandhill cranes and protected species. The hunting season operates in a designated area in East Tennessee on Nov. 22 and Nov. 23 and Nov. 29 through Jan. 1.
