Any persons who are participating in hunting and fishing on the Hatchie NWR are required to have a signed permit on them at all times.  These permits can be printed, or obtained at our Visitor Center or may be found at our kiosks.

Quota hunt permits are issued separately.  The Hatchie NWR hosts one quota hunt.  The Deer Quota Hunt is held during the month of November, and applications are collected during the month of July. If you are drawn for a quota hunt, then you will receive a notification by mail and will be asked to provide payment for your quota hunt permit.  For more information regarding our quota hunt permits, please refer to our Hatchie NWR Public Use Regulations brochure below.

It is the hunter's responsibility to comply with all Regulations contained in our Hatchie NWR Public Use Regulations brochure, the 50 CFR Regulations, and State Regulations.

Special Use Permits are given to individuals or groups at the discretion of the Refuge Manager.
