By WestKyStar Staff
GOLDEN POND, KY - Applications for the 2012 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, and there is an LBL-wide one (1) antlered buck limit.
Both adult and youth hunts will be available, along with a limited quota bow hunt in the Kentucky portion. The Youth Hunt is 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 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.
