Eagle Creek would be a great place to hunt if all the out of towners would hunt in their own county and state. I have a few places I like to hunt there and nothing makes me more angry than to get there only to see a vehicle parked there with Alabama tags. I mean is there nowhere in other areas to hunt without driving all the way up here and taking the spots of people that have been hunting it for years. STAY HOME.
well

I agree with local hunter Tennessee is a really cheap place to hunt I think they should raise out of towners license and lower residental licenses

I didnt realize locals felt that way... I thought that they liked all of the revenue and extra economy that someone out of state would bring in. Guess I was wrong.

Eagle creek wma,is full of turkey and deers,it is paper company land that is lease by TWRA,which means it is set out pines with very little hardwoods left on it.The turkey hunting is great,lots of clear cut that has been set back out in pines,thats holds lot of young grass and bugs and stuff that turkeys like.I think you would have a great hunt so come on over and bring all your friends too.

TN CHEAP PLACE TO HUNT...LOL A non res license is $260+- that a bit pricey..

I own land in TN and still have to pay the exorbitant fee.. when I come up to hunt it's $260 for a licenses and about $100 a day for food lodging and gas also factor in processing, etc etc etc.. As a land owner I should get some kind of a break on my freaking license.

The excuse I get from the TWRA is I don't pay taxes in TN,

WELL WHAT THE HELL IS PROPERTY TAX THEN.

hey deer hunters. if by chance you happen upon a steel trap in the wilderness;you did not discover it like christopher columbus.i spent a thousand dollars on traps,dyes waxes,stakes,tags,strechers,li scenses and such. i have had predetor problems on my land which borders eagle creek wma.i spent all morning tracking a thief who was wearing millitary jungle boots and was with a friend. if you want to come hunt thats fine.my family owns over 500 ackers near the middle.dont ruin it for yourself.

tried to bottle feed some babys but a momma dog with puppys would have worked.sometimes the snares dont strangle them and its possable to re locate them. though maybe not leagal.i would like a pair on my creek also.they dont flood roads as much here asthey do flat country.i think you may already have some come through if your below that cattle farmer with the big reds.otters have eaten all the fish out of my fishing holes.if you were to cage trap beavers you would need a large one and beaver sent to lure them in it.

why do you buy a license if you own the land? do you not qualify for land owner hunting which in tennessee does not require a license
