Deer harvested on both the Kentucky and Tennessee portions of Land Between The Lakes are bonus deer; they do not count towards statewide deer bag limits. Deer hunting provides a unique recreational opportunity within the region and helps maintain a healthy deer population.

The range is open from dawn to dusk on a first-come, first-served basis and closes on Wednesday mornings until 11a.m. for weekly clean-up.
