Online Hog Hunting Permits
Wild hogs may be hunted in the Big South Fork NRRA from Sept. 28, 2013, through February 28, 2014, 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. 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.
Did You Know?
In the 1960's Congress requested the Army Corps of Engineers to study the feasibility of damming the Big South Fork of the Cumberland River just above the Devils Jump Rapid to create another reservoir. Had that happened Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area would never have existed.
