TWRA to Present Public Duck Hunting and Blind Drawing Proposal

 TWRA to Present Public Duck Hunting and Blind Drawing Proposal

The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency’s proposal for public land duck hunting, and blind drawing procedures, has significantly changed in the last month in response to public comments.

The proposal is an effort to increase the number of duck hunters, who get drawn to hunt TWRA public wildlife management areas each season.

The updated proposal now increases access for hunters statewide, and retains significantly more traditional season-long, 60-day blind locations as offered currently.

In addition to the 414 season long blinds, there will be 71 hunt locations designated for quota hunts for 3, 4, or 7-day periods at a marked location, or an Agency-built blind.

TWRA will present the updated proposal for changes to the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Commission for consideration at its recently postponed meeting, which is now taking place on March 4th and 5th.

The report said there will be no changes proposed to privately-owned or permanent registered blinds.
