The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency will present a preview and recommendations for the 2013-14 hunting and trapping seasons among the agenda items at the Tennessee Fish and Wildlife Commission’s April meeting.
The meeting will be held in Paris at the Paris Convention Center on April 25-26 (Thursday-Friday). Thursday’s committee meetings begin at 1 p.m. The formal meeting starts at 9 a.m., Friday.
Forestry and Wildlife Diision Chief Daryl Ratajczak will give the 2013-14 hunting seasons’ introduction. Agency biologists and TWRA law enforcement staff will provide background information and season summaries for all the major game animals in the state.
A report on last summer’s eight week field exercise designed to determine a black bear population on the Cumberland Plateau will be presented. TWRA personnel, in cooperation with other organizations and agencies, conducted the study on an area of approximately 170,000 acres (257 square miles) and included portions of Fentress, Pickett and Scott counties.
The public is invited to attend the committee and formal meetings. The Paris Convention Center is located on 1510 East Wood Street (Highway 79).
