NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Waterfowl hunting season opens on Thanksgiving Day throughout Tennessee except the Reelfoot zone.

The season there opened for two days earlier this month and reopens on Saturday. Both waterfowl seasons end on Jan. 26

The inaugural sandhill crane hunting season also starts on Thanksgiving and will continue through Jan. 1.

The sandhill crane hunting is restricted to an area south of Interstate 40 and east of Tennessee Highway 56. There were 400 permits issued in October and each permit carries a limit of three birds.
