GOLDEN POND, Ky. (6/18/13) – Applications for the 2013 Quota Deer Hunts at Land Between The Lakes (LBL) National Recreation Area may be submitted July 1-31, online at www.lbl.org or by phone at 270-924-2065. The application fee is $5 online, or $7 by phone. After applying, applicants can check back in late-August to see if they were drawn.
Quota hunts provide unique recreational opportunities within the LBL region and 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. There is an LBL-wide one (1) antlered buck limit regardless of whether it is taken in Kentucky or Tennessee, or during archery season or a quota hunt.
Both adult and youth hunts will be available. The Youth Hunt is for hunters under age 16 in the Kentucky portion, and 6 through 16 years old in Tennessee on the first day of the applicable quota hunt. 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 safety 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.
