Expanded opportunities for disabled hunters at Lake Shelbyville

September 26, 2013 at 09:21 AM

Prairie State Outdoors


Additional deer hunting opportunities for people with disabilities will be offered at Whitley Creek Recreation Area at Lake Shelbyville this fall.

Every year a Deer Hunt for People with Disabilities is held at Lake Shelbyville for 25 applicants during Illinois’ first firearm season.

This year, disabled hunters who didn’t draw into that hunt, or those who would like to go archery hunting, may use the same accessible area.

Disabled hunters will be able to reserve a block of two blinds during archery deer season (Oct. 1-Jan. 19, excluding firearm and youth deer hunting seasons).

Disabled hunters holding a valid Lake Shelbyville Project Moultrie second shotgun season (Dec. 5-8) or Lake Shelbyville Project Moultrie muzzleloader season (Dec. 13-15) permit also will be allowed to hunt Whitley Creek.

Hunting will be allowed by permit only on Tuesday/Wednesday and Saturday/Sunday throughout the season, excluding the youth firearm season (Oct. 12-14) and first firearm season (Nov. 22-24).

Reservations can be made by calling 774-3951 and must be made three days before each hunt.

Only one reservation per hunter may be made at a time and hunters must use their reservations before signing up for another hunt date.

Shelbyville Boy Scout Troop 51 built four enclosed waterproof blinds that will be available for use.

For more information, call natural resource specialists Lee Mitchell or Ashley Florey at 774-3951, ext. 7049.
