The youth deer hunt set for Oct. 12-13 at Lake Shelbyville has been cancelled due to the federal government shutdown.

The youth hunt cannot be rescheduled due to the dates of this year's deer season.

"The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers understands and regrets the impacts these cancellations have on people that were preparing and planning to participate in these events," said Douglas Vogel of the USACE in a press release.

"Once the shutdown ends we will reopen the affected areas closed due to the shutdown as quick as possible and conduct future special events as planned."
