The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency is alerting bear hunters to an error that has occurred in the printed copy of the agency’s 2017-18 Tennessee Hunting and Trapping Guide.
On page 28, there is a chart that indicates hunters will be allowed to use dogs during the Nov. 18-21 gun/muzzleloader/archery hunt in Bear Hunt Zones 1, 2, and 3.
However, dogs will not be allowed during that particular hunting segment.
Bear hunting takes place in the eastern portion of the state and dogs are allowed during many of the various bear zone hunts between late September and late December.
However, dogs are not allowed dogs during the Nov. 18-21 hunt.
The agency’s digital version of the bear zone chart in the hunting guide is correct and can be viewed at www.tnwildlife.org
