Lake Shelbyville dove hunt applications

July 17, 2008 at 07:26 PM

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Lake Shelbyville will hold an advance public drawing for permits to hunt doves September 1, 2008, at South Sand Creek Dove Field. 

Two other fields were planned to be available to hunt, but above average precipitation this spring kept one field from being planted.  The other field sustained unrecoverable damage from deer early in the growing season.  Permit applications are available at the Lake Shelbyville Project Office. Click here to apply for one of the two hunts on September 1, 2008.

A youth hunt will take place in the morning from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. followed by an afternoon hunt from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. which will be open to all ages. 

Blinds for the youth hunt will be drawn at the advance public drawing due to the early start time.  For the afternoon hunt, blinds will be drawn one half hour prior to the hunt.

The youth hunt is limited to children sixteen years old and under.  A hunting assistant who is a parent, legal guardian or family member of at least eighteen years of age must accompany each youth.  The hunting assistant will be able to take part in the hunt.  In lieu of an application fee, each successful applicant and hunting assistant must make a donation of nonperishable food items the day of the hunt.  Food items collected will be donated to a local food bank. 

For the afternoon hunt, a $10.00 permit fee will be assessed to successful applicants.  One permit will allow two hunters the use of a designated blind. Applications for both hunts must be received in the Lake Shelbyville Project Office no later than 4 p.m. on August 15.  The public drawing for permits will take place on August 18 at 8 a.m. at the Lake Shelbyville Visitor Center.  Successful applicants will be notified by mail within ten days following the drawing. 

Beginning September 2 and throughout the remainder of the 2008 season, hunting in both areas will be on a first-come, first-serve basis.  No permits or drawings will be necessary.  Hunting will only be allowed from designated blinds. Statewide shooting hours, sunrise to sunset will be in effect.  For further information, you may contact Park Ranger Cory Donnel at (217) 774-2513.
