Archery only at Lake Shelbyville

December 31, 2010 at 12:58 PM

LAKE SHELBYVILLE—The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers would like to remind everyone that there are no late winter antlerless-only seasons on government owned land at Lake Shelbyville.

No firearm deer hunting of any kind—including shotguns, handguns, and muzzleloaders—are allowed on government land at Lake Shelbyville during late winter antlerless-only seasons, which run December 30 - January 2, 2010 and January 14-16, 2011.

Archery hunting is allowed on government land at Lake Shelbyville until the season ends on January 16, 2011.  Archery hunters are reminded that they must meet blaze orange requirements during these dates, even though the late-winter antlerless gun season is not in effect on Lake Shelbyville.  If you want to use a deer stand or blind on U.S. Army Corps of Engineers managed property you must obtain a either a Seasonal or Roving Tree Stand permit. 

The tree stand permits can be obtained at the Lake Shelbyville Project Office, which east of Shelbyville, IL on IL Route 16, D&M Sporting Goods in Sullivan, IL, or Kidd’s Archery in Shelbyville, IL.

All hunters are reminded that certain portions of Government land at Lake Shelbyville are off limits to hunting including all recreation areas.  Those found in violation of hunting within a prohibited area may receive a $125 citation.
