Tennessee Hunting and Fishing Licenses 1923-1941
Back Tags 1923-1933
Tennessee hunting and fishing licenses were issued as these oilcloth back tags which were to be sewn onto the back of outdoorsman's hunting or fishing vest. I suppose it was a foregone conclusion at the time that anyone who would hunt or fish would have such a vest.
There are known to exist both County Hunter's Licenses and State Hunting & Fishing Licenses in these back tags. The top picture is the complete set of state licenses. The gallery below are individual pictures for those which I have it. If you have pictures of any others or better pictures of ones I do have and would like to have them included in this website, please e-mail them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

An article on these licenses written by the late Jim Thompson appeared in Hunting & Fishing Collectibles Magazine Volume 6, Number 4; July-August, 2006.
