Once you have successfully completed the online hunter safety course you must register for a Field Day with the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency. Once you have successfully completed all Field Day activities you will obtain your Tennessee Hunter Education Certificate.
Field Days are conducted by TWRA-certified hunter safety instructors, and are expected to last 4 hours. Activities at the Field day include live-fire exercises, a brief review of hunter safety topics, and a multiple-choice final exam. As you participate in the Field Day, always remember to follow the rules of hunting and firearm safety.
To book a Field Day in your area, consult the Field Day schedule. Field days tend to fill up quickly, so it's important to plan ahead. Field Days are added to the schedule on a regular basis.
You must bring a copy of your Field Day Voucher and a piece of valid identification to your Field Day. Youth who do not have their own ID may have their parents or guardians show ID on their behalf.
To complete the hunter education requirements for Tennessee you must pass the online and Field Day portions of the hunter safety course.
If you are 21 years of age or older and completed the online-only Tennessee hunter education course, you must apply for the TWRA field day exemption type 013 permit in order to be legally certified. You can download the file and submit the completed form to TWRA. Your permanent hunter education card will be mailed to you by TWRA.
