NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Gun season for deer opens Saturday and runs through Jan. 5.

According to the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency, hunters may harvest one antlered buck per day until the statewide bag limit of three is reached, which includes deer harvested during archery and muzzleloader seasons. An antlered buck is a buck with antlers at least three inches long.

The bag limit for antlerless deer depends on where the deer is harvested

Cumberland Co. couple faces animal cruelty charges

A Cumberland County couple is now charged with animal cruelty, after a raid at their home this summer.

A grand jury indicted Thomas Uchytil and his wife Marci Uchytil on charges of cruelty to animals.

Marci Uchytil is also charged with obstruction of a legal writ, for allegedly interfering with officers at the scene.

Deputies served a search warrant at the couple's home on Fox Road back in June and found 33 dogs.  Some were in the homen while others were tied to trees and fences.
