So should you need a lisense to hunt on a private farm for small game?
With permission of course...
My friend owns a large farm, most of it densly wooded, whe has a problem with weasals, squirrels, rats, and rabbits. And that get into everything.

Not sure... no idea really... but, the first thing that comes to mind is... Wouldn't the problem be less with the hunting of the animals than the methods used to hunt (like a gun)?
Cause I know areas where firearm discharge is allowed are far fewer than places where it is not!

Check with local game warden. Farmers have right to destroy nuisance animals out if season with warden permission. In a situation like that you don't need a license. Also owners of property don't need license in season, key word there is owner.

Unless it's YOUR land, or your parent's land you need a license

Only the owners or their employees can take animals with a depredation permit.

Small game won't qualify, so you still need a license

•Resident and nonresident youths under 13. Hunters ages 10-12 need only a hunter education certificate to hunt. However, youths 6-16 hunting big game on a WMA must have a valid Type 094 or Type 095 permit or quota permit, as applicable.​

  • Residents born before March 1, 1926 (with proof of age and residency).
  • Military personnel on leave carrying leave papers.
  • Landowners, their spouses, and children who hunt on farmland which is owned by said landowners. The aforementioned must be residents of Tennessee but need not reside on the land. This license exemption does not apply if the farmland is owned jointly or in common by unrelated persons.
  • Resident grandchildren (under the age of 16) and resident great-grandchildren (under the age of 16) who hunt on farmland which is owned by their resident grandparents or great-grandparents.
  • Tenants, their spouses, and their dependent children who hunt on farmland owned by an individual or family. The aforementioned must be residents of Tennessee and must actually reside on the land and have the permission of the landowner to hunt. A tenant is a person who, for money, free rent, or other consideration, cares for farmland. The tenancy must be agricultural in nature.
  • First cousins who own farmland jointly or in common may fish and hunt small game on the farmland. Their children may fish and hunt small game as well.
  • Resident and nonresident youths under 13. Hunters ages 10-12 need only a hunter education certificate to hunt. However, youths 6-16 hunting big game on a WMA must have a valid Type 094 or Type 095 permit or quota permit, as applicable
  • You can even hunt migratory birds without a permit with the exception of waterfowl....all you need is a Federal Duck Stamp from the Post Office.
  • See License and Fees @ http://www.tn.gov/twra/huntlicense.html
  • Remember that even on your property, you cannot discharge your hunting equipment except archery within 100 yards of another dwelling. Therefore, if someone builds right on the property line, you may have to move 99 yards into your property to actually hunt.
