During Land Between The Lakes’ 2013-2014 archery season hunters may harvest two white-tailed deer, including one antlered buck unless a buck has already been harvested on LBL. Deer harvested on both the Kentucky and Tennessee portions of LBL are bonus deer; they do not count towards statewide deer bag limits. Appropriately licensed archers with required state licenses or permits may harvest one turkey (either sex), squirrels, woodchucks, coyotes, armadillos, and feral hogs.
 
Deer hunting provides a unique recreational opportunity within the region and helps maintain a healthy deer population. Land Between The Lakes invites visitors to hone their archery skills on the archery practice range and field archery range trail at the Golden Pond Target Range.
 
Located just off US68/KY80, the range is open from dawn to dusk on a first-come, first-served basis.
 
Please be aware that the Target Range will be closed on Wednesday mornings until 11 a.m. for weekly clean-up.
