Male fawns with no antler protruding above the hairline do not count toward a hunter's antlered bag limit, rather toward the hunter's antlerless bag limits.

It's that time of year again. Tennessee's gun hunting season opens this coming Saturday, Nov. 19.

Anyone born on or after Jan. 1, 1969 is required to carry proof of satisfactory completion of a hunter education class or be in possession of the Apprentice Hunting License while hunting any species in Tennessee.

As the season begins, sportsmen are reminded of changes made this year in regard to the definition of "antlered deer."

According to the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency, "Antlered deer are defined as male or female deer with antlers protruding above the hairline. Velvet antlered deer are also considered antlered."

No more than one may be taken per day.
