NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency has scheduled a free hunting day for Saturday.
State residents on that day only can take part in the opening day of squirrel season without needing a hunting license. Hunters also do not need a wildlife management area permit on that one day.
TWRA officials said the event is designed to renew interest in hunting for people who haven't hunted in some time and to let people who have not hunted before try it out.
Hunter education requirements have not been waived for free hunting day. Anyone born on or after Jan. 1, 1969, is required to have successfully completed a hunter education course.
