Now is the time to purchase a hunting or fishing license to get the most out of Tennessee’s license year, according to the Tennessee Wildlife Resource Agency.
New 2019-2020 Tennessee hunting and fishing licenses are now on sale and TWRA expects over one million licenses to be sold. All current year licenses expire Feb. 28.
Licenses are available online anytime online (click here), on the TWRA “On the Go App,” or at one of more than 700 license agents across the state. Hunters and anglers can now select to auto-renew your license and never worry about your license expiring again.
According to the TWRA, hunters and anglers have been funding Tennessee’s and the nation’s wildlife conservation for more than100 years through license purchases.
One-hundred percent of hunting and fishing license fees go to support wildlife conservation in Tennessee.
Plus, a license purchase returns taxes paid on firearms, archery equipment, fishing gear and boat fuel to Tennessee at a rate of up to $40 per year – so a license purchase is a great investment, the TWRA says.
This successful funding system is the Wildlife and Sportfish Restoration program which is the largest driver of wildlife conservation nationwide.
