The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency has been informed by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Oak Ridge Operations (ORO) that the deer hunts scheduled Oct. 19-20, have been cancelled at the Oak Ridge Wildlife Management Area.
The cancellation comes as a result of an effort to initiate an orderly shutdown in support of obtaining a safe and secure status. The cancellation, at this time, applies to the Oct. 19-20, hunts. A decision on the other hunts, scheduled in November and December, 2013, will be made as this information is received.
Hunters may contact the Oak Ridge WMA check station on Saturday, Oct. 12, at 865 576-2380 from 7 a.m. EST until noon. For any additional questions concerning the cancellation, contact the TWRA Region III Office at 931 484-9571.
