No license needed for hunting Saturday

Posted: Updated:

Tennessee hunters will not need a license to go out Saturday, as the state marks the start of squirrel season.

State residents are not required to have a hunting license or Wildlife Management Area permit to hunt on Aug. 27, Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency said in a news release.

However, hunters born in 1969 or after must have completed a hunter education course or have an apprentice license.

The free day marks the start of squirrel season, which runs through the end of February. Hunters are limited to ten squirrels a day.

Hunting is allowed starting a half-hour before sunrise and ending a half hour after sunset.

Armadillo, beaver, coyote, groundhog and striped skunk remain in season year-round.
