To revive the love of hunting or reintroduce or introduce someone to hunting Tennessee will have a free hunting day on August 27th. State residents will be able to go hunting without license and WMA permit requirements.
August 27th is also the day squirrel season starts, which is a long time tradition in Tennessee. Squirrel hunting starts a half hour before sunrise and ends a half hour after sunset with a limit of 10. Animals that are allowed to be hunted are squirrels, and the year round animals; armadillo, beaver, coyote, groundhog, and striped skunk.
Those who are participating in the free hunting day still need a hunters education certificate. From TheChatanoogan.com .
