turkey2 300HICKORY, Ky. (1/17/13) – Applications will be available online February 1, for the first six hunting days of the 2013 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 30-31, a two-day hunt April 9-10, and a two-day hunt April 13-14. In Tennessee, quota hunts include a two-day youth hunt (for hunters 6-16 years old on the Tennessee portion) April 6-7, a two-day hunt April 9-10, and a two-day hunt April 13-14. No hunting is permitted between these dates.
 
Hunters can apply online at http://www.lbl.org/Hunting.html February 1-28. Applicants can check the website the end of March to see if they were drawn. The Quota Hunt application fee will remain $5 for an online application. The LBL Hunter Use Permit cost will increase to $25 on March 1.
The non-quota hunting season, which does not require a prior application, is one 14-day hunt, April 15-28 in Kentucky, and two 7-day hunts April 15-21 and April 22-28 in Tennessee.
 
Hunters may continue to use the 2012 Motor Vehicle Use Map (MVUM) available on the website until the 2013 MVUM is posted. 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.
