Tennessee Releases Bear Season Change

TN Wildlife Commission, Bear Hunting Magazine

The Tennessee Fish and Wildlife Commission released a change to the bear hunting season for 2013.

The commission changed a proclamation to prevent conflicts between user groups, including bear hunters taking part in scheduled hound hunts. The adjustment means bear hunters will be allowed to continue to carry a gun until the end of a day in which they have harvested a bear.

The change does not affect hunters who have filled their seasonal or daily bag limits. They may continue to accompany other hunters for the remainder of the respective seasons, as long as they don't carry firearms or ammunition.
