This is NOT Washington, California or Oregon states and sound biological studies done by certified personel with biology degrees need to be making these recommendations. NOT the public
As far back as can remember, the TWRA has requested comments and suggestions by the public for both hunting and fishing regulations. Go to www.tnwildlife.org
to see when these are requested by the TWRA or call the Nashville office of TWRA. That doesn't eliminate the work of "certified" personnel.
