The Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area and the Obed Wild and Scenic River are two of only a few National Park Service units legislated to allow hunting within their boundaries. Wild hogs may be hunted from September 26, 2015, through February 29, 2016, in both Tennessee and Kentucky. A permit is required to hunt hogs during this season and may be purchased at one of the visitor centers or online at https://www.nps.gov/biso/planyourvisit/hog-hunting.htm or https://www.nps.gov/obed/planyourvisit/permits.htm. The permit costs $5.00 and is good for both Big South Fork and Obed; those who purchase the permit will be requested to participate in a survey at a later time. A valid hunting license is required to purchase the permit. Dogs may not be used to hunt hogs.
For further information, contact the Bandy Creek Visitor Center at (423) 286-7275 or the Obed Wild and Scenic River Visitor Center at (423) 346-6294.
