LBL Quota Deer Hunt Applications Available Online July 1
GOLDEN POND, KY - Applications for 2011 Quota Deer Hunts at Land Between The Lakes (LBL) National Recreation Area may be submitted online at www.lbl.org from July 1 through July 31. The application fee is $5. After applying, applicants can enter the website with their user name and password in late-August to see if they were drawn.
Quota hunts not only provide unique recreational opportunities within the LBL region, they help maintain a healthy deer population. Deer harvested on LBL are bonus deer and do not count toward statewide bag limits. All quota hunt permits will be either-sex permits, and there is an LBL-wide one (1) antlered buck limit.
Both adult and youth hunts will be available. The Youth Hunt is an either-sex hunt for hunters under age 16 in the Kentucky portion, and 6 through 16 years old in Tennessee. Youth hunters must possess a state-approved hunter safety card according to state regulations. Youth not required to have a hunter safety card must carry a signed verification form available on LBL's website. Each youth must be accompanied by an adult at least 21 years old who meets hunter safety requirements.
