The Chuck Swan Wildlife Management Area occupies 24,444 acres between the Powell and Clinch rivers on the east shores of Norris Lake, Tennessee. TWRA and the Tennessee division of Forestry (TDF) both manage the area. Big game in the area include whitetail deer and wild turkey. Chuck Swan is greatly used by bank fishermen due to easy access to the lake. The non-consumptive users such as hikers, ATV riders, mountain bike riders, horseback riders, wildlife photographers, and bird watchers also heavily utilize the area.
There is plenty of outdoor recreation and fun available to everyone. Enjoy 70 miles of shoreline on Norris Lake. Hunters be sure to check the TWRA's hunting schedule at www.tn.gov/twra/wmas.html
