Land Between the Lakes Quota Turkey Hunt Applications Available Online February 1st-29th


Land Between the LakesGolden Pond, KY – Applications will be available online February 1st, for the first six hunting days of the 2012 Turkey Season at Land Between The Lakes (LBL) National Recreation Area. Quota hunts not only provide unique recreational opportunities within the LBL region, they help maintain a healthy turkey population.

Three quota hunts in both Kentucky and Tennessee during the first portion of the season require a prior application.  In Kentucky, quota hunts include a two-day youth hunt for hunters (under age 16 on the Kentucky portion of LBL) March 31st-April 1st, a two-day hunt April 5th-6th, and a two-day hunt April 14th-15th.

In Tennessee, quota hunts include a two-day youth hunt (for hunters 6-16 years old on the Tennessee portion) April 7th-8th, a two-day hunt April 9th-10th, and a two-day hunt April 14th-15th. No hunting is permitted between these dates.

The non-quota hunting season, which does not require a prior application, is one 14-day hunt, April 16th-29th in Kentucky, and two 7-day hunts April 16th-22nd and April 23rd-29th in Tennessee.

The Quota Hunt application fee will remain at $5.00 for an online application. Hunters can apply online at February 1st-29th. Applicants can check the website at near the end of March to see if they were drawn.

The 2012 Motor Vehicle Use Map (MVUM) is now available on the website. Printed copies are also available at the Golden Pond Visitor Center. Licensed motorized vehicles are only permitted on roads identified on the MVUM and on the LBL Recreation Map. Hunters will want to be sure to refer to the MVUM when scouting and hunting on LBL.
