GOLDEN POND, KY (1/18/12) – Applications will be available online February 1, 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 31-April 1, a two-day hunt April 5-6, and a two-day hunt April 14-15. In Tennessee, quota hunts include a two-day youth hunt (for hunters 6-16 years old on the Tennessee portion) April 7-8, a two-day hunt April 9-10, and a two-day hunt April 14-15. 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 16-29 in Kentucky, and two 7-day hunts April 16-22 and April 23-29 in Tennessee.
The Quota Hunt application fee will remain at $5 for an online application. Hunters can apply online at www.lbl.org February 1-29. Applicants can check the website at www.lbl.org 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.
