Land Between the Lakes 2011 Archery Season

Land Between the LakesGolden Pond, KY – Land Between The Lakes (LBL) National Recreation Area deer archery season is open Saturday, September 24th, 2011 through January 16th, 2012. The only exception is for quota hunt days and the day immediately before each quota hunt. 

The quota hunt days for the Tennessee portion are October 15th-16th, November 11th-12th, and November 26th-27th. The quota hunt days for the Kentucky portion are October 29th-30th and November 19th-20th.

Deer hunting provides a unique recreational opportunity within the LBL region and helps maintain a healthy deer population.  LBL invites visitors to hone their archery skills on the archery practice range and field archery range trail at the Golden Pond Target Range.  The range is located just off US68/KY80 and is open from dawn to dusk on a first-come, first-served basis.

During LBL’s 2011-2012 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 and does not count towards statewide deer bag limits.

Appropriately licensed archers can also harvest one turkey of either sex (requires state turkey permit), squirrels, woodchucks, coyotes, armadillos, and feral hogs.  Hunters are not required to check in for deer archery hunting at LBL, but must have a valid state hunting license, big game permit, and hunters age 16 and over need to purchase an LBL Hunter Use Permit ($20.00).

A Hunter Safety Card is required as specified by state law. For youth hunters under age 16 who do not have a hunter safety card, see LBL’s website for additional safety requirements. Hunters must abide by regulations in the 2011-2012 Deer Hunting Information sheets that are available at LBL visitor facilities, on our website, or by calling 270.924.2065 Monday through Friday, 8:00am-4:30pm.
