ONEIDA, Tenn. (AP) — Officials with Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area and the Obed Wild and Scenic River say hog hunting season has opened.

A statement from the park says hunters are allowed to take wild hogs in Tennessee and Kentucky with weapons legal for the season through Feb. 28. Permits are required to hunt and can be purchased at the parks. One permit is good for both and it requires a valid hunting license.

The national parks are two of only a few that allow hunting within their borders.
