Quota hunt application fees have been waived for the remainder of the 2021-22 season.

    Apply for one of our new 3-7 day waterfowl quota hunts! Quota permits are for agency-built blinds or marked locations. Apply for these through our online quota hunt system (like the deer/turkey quota system).

    There will be 3 application periods- early, mid, and late, as well as the ability to receive priority points for any drawing you are not selected. When selecting specific quota hunt locations (WMA, site number, and date), please note that there are 2 types for which to apply:

    Agency-built blinds (Tier 2)
    Marked/staked locations with a natural cover but no blind structure and must hunt within 25 feet of the location (Tier 3)
    Marked locations can be hunted from a temporary blind that can be left out for the duration of the hunt period.

    Early segment application period is now open!

    All applications must be submitted through www.GoOutdoorsTennessee.com or any TWRA license agent. No mail-in applications are accepted. It is required that you include an email address for your account. All notifications will arrive only by email. You can log into your account at any time and see hunts you applied for, permits you were awarded, and your priority points balance.

    How to apply:

    1. Select WMA(s) and hunt locations you are interested in. Up to 48 location/date combinations can be selected in a priority order. Locations and maps can be found at tnwildlife.org.

    2. Submit your application through www.GoOutdoorsTennessee.com

    3. You will be emailed draw results and provide your notice of intent (NOI).

    3. If you weren’t successful, you receive a priority point.

    4. Repeat process for the middle and late application periods!

    If you apply for an Early Waterfowl Permit and are unsuccessful, you will receive a priority point for future Early Waterfowl drawings. .
