SENIOR CITIZENS WILL HAVE NEW LICENSE IN 2002
Beginning on March 1, 2002, Tennessee's resident senior citizens will
have new licenses available for purchase, according to the Tennessee
Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA).
A new category will be added to the Lifetime Sportsman License. This
will be for residents ages 65 or over and will be available for $200.
This new license, like the other Lifetime Sportsman Licenses, will cover
all licenses and permits for the lifetime of the license holder.
The other change is an Annual Senior Citizen Permit for $40. This
permit may be purchased by senior citizens with the regular $10
permanent senior citizens license. The new annual permit will cover all
permits for one year.
When these become available in 2002, a resident senior citizen may
purchase the lifetime license for $200 or the $10 senior citizen license
and each year purchase the $40 annual permit and be covered for all
license and permits.
Either way, senior citizens, who hunt on wildlife management areas or
fish at Tellico or Citico where the additional permits are required, can
realize a savings in the cost of permits.
The new license and permit will only be available after March 1, 2002,
to Tennessee residents age 65 and older. The lifetime license will be
available only by application to the TWRA Nashville or in person at a
TWRA regional office. The annual permit will be available from all
