Early season hunts

By Richard Whiteside

Years ago I would start turkey hunting in Kentucky and Tennessee in late March, in some of their early season quota hunts. 

The TVA (Tennessee Valley Authorities) managed a large portion of LBL (Land Between the Lakes). I would always purchase the All Big Game 365 Tag which gave me an all-year window for an extra 50 bucks.  

For years I enjoyed the area and all of its surroundings, free of people except your occasional hunter or hiker or three-wheeler. 

In 1998 the TVA transferred power and authority to the USFS, and that’s when things started changing quickly.
