TN deer archery only season open to Oct. 28

From Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency

-- Tennessee's deer archery-only season opened Sept. 24 in all 95 counties in the state, and extends until Oct. 28, and Oct. 31 to Nov. 4.

The antlerless deer bag limits by unit are Unit A -4; Unit B -2; Unit L -3 per day. The antlered deer bag limit is a total of three for the year. A hunter may take his three antlered deer during any season, but no more than one per day.

In addition to deer, archers may harvest one wild turkey of either sex during the archery-only deer seasons in counties that have a fall turkey gun hunt. While hunting during the archery-only deer seasons, archers may take only wild turkey no matter how many counties they may hunt.

A list of counties in located on page 40 of the 2011 Tennessee Hunting and Trapping Guide.

The TWRA suggests all archery hunters obtain a 2011 Tennessee Hunting and Trapping Guide. The guide lists the counties and bag limits for each of the different deer management units. The guides are available where hunting and fishing licenses are also sold online.

Hunters must possess the appropriate licenses and permits. Any hunterborn on or after Jan. 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.
