In recent months, there have been discussions around two proposals gaining attention in the hunting community. As a friend of Tennessee Wildlife Federation, we are interested in your thoughts and opinions so we can better represent your views.
The first proposal would expand the regular muzzleloader season to allow the use of primitive firearms, like Mississippi and Louisiana currently do. The second proposal would allow airbows for big game hunting during archery season in Tennessee.
In large part, sportsmen and women fund wildlife conservation in Tennessee. And outdoorsmen and women --- from hunters to birdwatchers --- are eight times more likely to support conservation policies. That's why we want to hear from you!
