Lake Shelbyville dove hunting info

July 22, 2009 at 02:26 PM

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Lake Shelbyville will be conducting a dove hunt requiring a permit on opening day of dove season, Sept. 1, 2009, at South Sand Creek Dove Field. 

A youth hunt will take place in the morning from 7 a.m. until 11 a.m. followed by an afternoon hunt for all ages from 1 p.m. until 6 p.m.  Permit applications for both hunts must be received at the Lake Shelbyville Project Office no later than 4 p.m. on August 14, 2009.

For the afternoon hunt for all ages, a $10 permit fee will be assessed to successful applicants.  In lieu of the $10, the application fee for the youth hunt will be a donation of ten nonperishable food items the day of the hunt.  Food items collected will be donated to a local food bank.  One permit will allow two hunters the use of a designated hunting blind.  Click here for a permit application or pick them up at the Lake Shelbyville Visitor Center Tuesday through Sunday 10 a.m. until 4 p.m., at the Lake Shelbyville Project Office Monday through Friday 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.

The public drawing for permits will take place on Aug. 17, 2009 at 8 a.m. at the Lake Shelbyville Visitor Center.  You do not have to be present for the drawing because successful applicants will be notified by mail within t10 days following the drawing.  Hunting blinds for the youth hunt will be drawn on August 17, 2009 during the public drawing for permits.  For the afternoon hunt for all ages, hunting blinds will be drawn at South Sand Creek Dove Field at 12:30 p.m. on September 1, 2009.

The youth hunt is limited to children 16 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 hunt with the youth they accompany.  However, if the hunting assistant has also applied for an afternoon permit and took place in the youth hunt, he or she will be excluded from participating in the afternoon hunt.  This will ensure that the maximum amount of hunters will be able to participate.

Due to the abundance of rain that we have had this year South Sand Creek Dove Field is the only dove field available for public use at Lake Shelbyville on US Army Corps of Engineers owned land.  Beginning September 2 and throughout the remainder of the 2009 dove season, hunting South Sand Creek Dove Field 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 more information concerning dove hunting at Lake Shelbyville contact Natural Resources Specialist Cory Donnel at (217) 774-2513.
