It Will Cost You More To Hunt and Fish

twra_logoFor only the second time in 25 years, the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA) is seeking to adjust the way hunting and fishing licenses and fees are structured in order to maintain its successful wildlife, fisheries and education programs. The proposal includes some incremental fee increases and the inclusion of new user groups.
The TWRA will ask that all license fees be raised by 22 percent at the Jan. 15-16 meeting of the Tennessee Fish and Wildlife Commission at Discovery Park in Union City.
If approved the most purchased permit, the Type 1 resident hunting and fishing license, would go from $27 to $33.
The annual sportsman license would go from $135 to $165.
The new fees do not go in effect until July 1. The 2014-15 license expires on Feb. 28.
