Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)


Question: Why I am not able to see or acquire permits?

Answer: First, ensure you have taken the appropriate safety quiz for the activity you wish to pursue. Second, ensure you have had your iSportsman account validated. Validation requires submission of a state hunting license, hunter safety certificate, and installation background check (non- affiliated civilians) annually. Directions specific to the various recreation activities can be found under the information tab on the main homepage.


Question: Is a Tennessee and a Kentucky license required to hunt on both the Tennessee and Kentucky side of Fort Campbell? 

Answer: No. Patrons are only required to have one state license (either Tennessee or Kentucky) and an installation permit to hunt on Fort Campbell. 


Question: I am a civilian with no affiliation to the Army or Fort Campbell. Am I eligible to hunt and fish on the installation?

Answer: Yes, you are eligible to hunt on Fort Campbell. The main difference is that non-affiliated civilians will be required to complete a background check prior to having their iSportsman account validated. Details can be found under the hunting and fishing information tab.
