Deer PicNASHVILLE — The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency has announced the application period for the 2015 Wildlife Management Area (WMA) Big Game Quota Hunts, the regular elk, youth elk, and WMA Youth will run from June 11 through July 23.

Entries must be submitted before midnight (CDT) July 23. The WMA hunting instruction sheet lists locations and dates for each of the quota hunts along with drawing rules and regulations. Instruction sheets can be obtained and applications made for the hunts at any TWRA license agent, TWRA regional office or online at the TWRA website, www.tnwildlife.org. Mailed applications will not be processed into the drawing system.

There is no fee for current Annual Sportsman License holders, Lifetime Sportsman License holders, or seniors possessing a Type 167 permit in addition to their permanent senior citizen license. For all other applicants, there is a non-refundable $10 permit fee for each drawing entered. There is a $1 agent fee for applications made at a license agent. When applying at a license agent, hunters must remain at the location while the application is processed to verify the information is correct on the receipt.

For applications made on the internet, there is a $2 internet usage fee. An internet application is not complete until the applicant gets a Temporary Authorization Number, which is found on the Purchase Confirmation page. If entering multiple quota hunts, a person must pay the permit and agent fee(s) for each quota hunt application submitted.

The WMA (elk hunts excluded) priority point system gives a priority point for each year a hunter participates (this year a maximum of 10 points) without being successfully drawn for a hunt. Applicants drawn for a hunt last year will start over with a priority of zero.

After all the drawings are conducted, leftover permits will be sold on-line, on a first-come, first-serve basis beginning Aug. 26 at 8 a.m. (CDT).

The state’s seventh elk hunt will be held Oct. 19-23, 2015 at the North Cumberland WMA. As in the previous hunts, five individuals will be selected to participate. Four of the participants will be selected through a computer drawing conducted by the TWRA. The fifth participant will be the recipient of a permit that is donated to a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO), which will be announced at a later date. That permit will be auctioned with proceeds going to the elk program.

For the fourth year, a Young Sportsman Elk Hunt will be held Oct. 24-25. Those applying must be ages 13-16 years old at the time of the hunt. Youth who submit an application for the regular elk quota hunt are not permitted to apply for the youth elk hunt.
