Online Hog Hunting Permits

Wild hogs may be hunted in the Big South Fork NRRA from mid-September through the end of February each year, in both Tennessee and Kentucky. A permit is still required to hunt hogs during this season and may be purchased at the Bandy Creek Visitor Center as well as online from late August until the end of February. The permit costs $5.00. A valid hunting license is required to purchase the hog permit to hunt. Dogs may not be used to hunt hogs.

If you purchase your permit online, please print out your receipt or write down your confirmation number. This is what you will need to have if you are checked by a ranger. Hog Hunting Permits are not being mailed out.
