GOLDEN POND, KY: Land Between The Lakes National Recreation Area invites the public to participate in archery deer season which begins in September. All hunters must possess State Hunting License/Deer Permit, Land Between The Lakes Hunter Use Permit (age 16 and over), and a Hunter Safety Card according to Kentucky or Tennessee state regulations.

Kentucky
• Archery: September 6-January 19
• Crossbow: October 1-19 and November 8-December 31

Archery and crossbow hunting is not permitted one day immediately before each quota hunt or during quota hunts.

Reference the 2014-2015 Deer Hunting Information for specific regulations, as well as state regulations. Information is available at visitor facilities and http://www.landbetweenthelakes.us/seendo/outdoor-rec/hunting/.

Deer harvested on both the Kentucky and Tennessee portions of Land Between The Lakes are bonus deer; they do not count towards statewide deer bag limits. Deer hunting provides a unique recreational opportunity within the region and helps maintain a healthy deer population.

Licensed archers with required state licenses or permits may harvest one turkey (either sex), squirrels, woodchucks, coyotes, and armadillos.

Hunters can hone their archery skills on the archery practice range and the field archery range at the Golden Pond Target Range, located just off US68/KY80. The range is open from dawn to dusk on a first-come, first-served basis and closes on Wednesday mornings until 11am for weekly clean-up.

Land Between The Lakes National Recreation Area manages more than 170,000 acres in western Kentucky and Tennessee as part of the U.S. Forest Service and the Department of Agriculture’s public lands program. Land Between The Lakes offers outdoor recreation, lake access, land management, and environmental education to over 1.4 million visitors annually. The Friends of Land Between The Lakes works in partnership with the Forest Service providing program services, funds development, and volunteer support.
