The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency is adding confirmed cougar sightings to a new online map. The TWRA Cougar Action Team, or C-A-T, is an in-house committee working to organize evidence submitted by the public and developing a policy for dealing with this subspecies of cougar, which is not native to Tennessee. 

The first confirmed sighting in more than 100 years was in Obion County last September

The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency wants to lease fields for the upcoming mourning dove season. The standard leased field is one on which grain or millet has been harvested. TWRA pays $75 per acre, up to 40 acres, for a maximum of $3,000. Fields must be available for a minimum of three priority hunt dates in September. The fields will be leased by September 1.  Landowners interested in leasing fields for the hunts can find the regional numbers for TWRA at its website – tn.gov/twra. TWRA says about 40 thousand hunters bagged about 300-thousand mourning doves last year in Tennessee.
