The Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area is one of only a few National Park Service units legislated to allow hunting.  Due to changes in the Tennessee hunting regulations, wild hogs may be hunted in the Big South Fork NRRA as well as the Obed Wild and Scenic River from September 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, the Obed Wild and Scenic River Visitor Center, or online at https://www.nps.gov/biso/planyourvisit/hog-hunting.htm.  The permit costs $5.00, and those who purchase the permit will be requested to participate in a survey at a later date.  A valid hunting license is required to purchase the permit.  Dogs may not be used to hunt hogs.

For more information, contact the Bandy Creek Visitor Center at (423) 286-7275 or the Obed Wild and Scenic River Visitor Center at (423) 346-6294.
