The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency has scheduled two scout days and three quota hunts on the Oak Ridge Wildlife Management Area this fall.
During the scout and quota hunt days, these greenways and this park will be closed: Gallaher Bend Greenway, North Boundary Greenway, Haw Ridge Park, and the section of Melton Lake Greenway adjacent to Haw Ridge Park.
The hunts, which are open only to those with a valid TWRA quota permit, will take place on the following weekends:
- November 2-3 (Saturday and Sunday)
- November 9-10 (Saturday and Sunday)
- December 7-8 (Saturday and Sunday)
Additionally, these areas will be closed for scout days on Saturday, October 26, and Saturday, November 30, a press release said. Anyone who does not have a quota hunt permit is asked to stay out of these areas on the hunt dates and from 7 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. on scout dates, the press release said.
It said signs will be posted in the affected areas to notify the public of the closures.
