Gun hunting deer season in Tennessee officially opens Saturday, November 18th.
While the season begins, there are a few things the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency wants hunters to keep in mind:
Anyone born on or after January 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.
During gun season, sportsmen may also use muzzleloader or archery equipment.
The season will continue through Jan. 7, 2018 and the second Young Sportsman Hunt is Jan. 13-14.
Statewide bag limit for antlered deer is two, includes deer killed during the archery only, muzzleloader, and gun seasons.
