Deer monitoring
The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency will be collecting deer biological data on Saturday, the opening day of the rifle season, at various locations across East Tennessee. Data to be collected will include deer age estimates, antler measurements, and Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) surveillance samples. With the addition of Internet checking in and the TWRA On the Go mobile application, less than half of harvested deer are brought to a checking station. The newer methods for big game checking have made it more difficult for TWRA to collect data that greatly aids in managing the state’s deer population. As concerns over the potential spread of CWD into Tennessee increase, TWRA has amended a rule regarding importation restrictions on deer, elk, moose, and caribou carcasses harvested anywhere outside of the state. TWRA encourages hunters that harvest a deer on the opening day to bring it by one of the checking stations or locations; Including Mantooth Custom Meat Cutting in Bybee and Two Bucks Processing in Dandridge.
