Errors In Printed Hunting Guide; Corrected Version Is Online

Monday, August 12, 2019

  • Page 40 -  Correct end date for bear archery season (no dogs) is Oct. 25.
  • Page 15 -  Traps allowed should read the following: “Cushion-hold traps, laminated jaw traps, off-set wide jaw traps, off-set laminated jaw traps, and wide jaw traps with an outside measure of jaw spread that is 9 inches or less, as measured at the widest point and a minimum jaw thickness of 1/4 inch, may be used for all sets.
    Double-jaw traps with an outside spread of 9 inches or less of the upper and lower jaw combined and a minimum jaw thickness of 1/4 inch may be used for all sets.
  • Page 49 - The correct date and time for hand-held draws for Shelby Forest are Nov. 9 at 10 a.m.

  • Page 59 - The correct date for archery hunting at White Oak WMA is Dec. 2.
  • Page 59 - Wolf River WMA is now open to statewide deer seasons so dog training dates are deleted.
  • Page 63 – On Laurel Hill WMA, harvests for the Nov. 8-10 and Nov. 22-24 should be a bonus buck.
  • Page 77 - corrections have been made to the North Cherokee WMA opossum and raccoon season dates. Opossum, raccoon hunt dates are Oct. 4 – last day in February. Season closed Oct 4-7, Oct. 11-25, Oct. 27-Nov. 1, Dec. 1-21 in all bear reserves.
  • Page 77- The Chuck Swan WMA raccoon hunt season dates are Dec. 15-21, rather than Dec. 15-24.
