MIGRATORY BIRD PERMIT REQUIRED

LANDOWNER LICENSE EXEMPTION

     Persons hunting without a license under a farmland owner exemption must complete and sign a statement, attesting where the property is located and how this land qualifies for a landowner exemption, before hunting.   This statement must be carried on their person while hunting under the landowner exemption.  Resident landowners and their children hunting on their parent's land under this exemption are also exempt from Hunter Education Certification requirements. Click here to download the Farmland Owner License Exemption Statement (Adobe Acrobat Reader Format).

NO LICENSE NEEDED FOR:

bulletResidents born before March 1, 1926 (To qualify for this exemption, you must carry proof of your age and residency to show a wildlife officer, if requested).
bulletMilitary personnel on leave carrying leave papers. A pass does not meet this requirement.
bulletLandowners, their spouses, and children, who hunt on farmland which is owned by said landowners. Landowners, their spouses, and children must be residents of Tennessee but need not reside on the land. Property owned by grandparents does not qualify their grandchildren for this exemption. Also, this license exemption does not apply if the farm land is owned jointly or in common by unrelated persons.
bulletTenants, their spouses, and dependent children who hunt on farmland owned by an individual or family. Tenants, their spouses, and dependent children must be residents of Tennessee and must actually reside on the land and have the permission of the landowner to hunt. A tenant is a person who, for money, free rent, or other consideration, cares for farmland. The tenancy must be agricultural in nature.
bulletFirst cousins who own farmland jointly or in common may fish and hunt small game on the farmland. Their children may fish and hunt small game as well.
bulletResident and nonresident juveniles under 13. Hunters ages 10-12 need only a hunter education certificate to hunt.  However, youths 10-15 hunting big game on a WMA must have a valid Type 094 or Type 095 permit or quota permit, as applicable.
