Tennessee Wildlife Management Areas

Reelfoot Lake, Tennessee
Reelfoot - David Haggard USFW

Tennessee hunters and outdoor enthusiasts are fortunate in that we have nearly 100 Wildlife Management Areas (WMA's) and Refuges available for public access for hunting and other outdoor related activites.

Tennessee's WMA's range in size from 53 acres to 625,000 acres and provide more than 1,250,000 acres of public access hunting. 

Wildlife Management Areas in Tennessee are FULLY funded by hunters and fisherman through the sale of hunting and fishing licenses. The hunters and fisherman of Tennessee are gracious enough to allow access to many of these properties to the non-hunting public.  

The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA) oversees these WMA's which are divided into four regions, starting with region 1 in west Tennessee and ending with region 4 in east Tennessee.

We have some detailed information about certain WMA's and we will continue to add additional WMA's as photos and other information become available. We have some harvest records available for Wild Turkey and Whitetail Deer. We also have a short list of Tennessee's best bucks.

      Region 1         Region 2         Region 3        Region 4  


If you have a questions about hunting or other activities on a Tennessee Wildlife Management Areas post them in our discussion forum.
