Lake Shelbyville Dove Hunt Applications Available

Lake Shelbyville - The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Lake Shelbyville will be conducting a dove hunt on Saturday, September 2, 2017 at Whitley Creek
and South Sand Creek Dove Fields. On September 2, two hunts will take place,

Applicants will be able to indicate their preference for the hunt (a.m.,
p.m., or either).  Permit applications must be received at the Lake
Shelbyville Project Office no later than 4 p.m. on August 14, 2017.  A
$30.00 permit issuance fee will be assessed per blind (good for two
hunters), payable at the time of application.  Each successful youth
applicant may choose to pay the $30.00 fee or make a donation of 10
nonperishable food items on the day of the hunt.  The non-perishable food
items will be donated to a local food bank. One permit will allow two
hunters the use of a designated hunting blind.  The public drawing for
permits will take place on August 15, 2017 at 8 a.m. at the Lake Shelbyville
Project Office.  Applicants do not have to be present for the drawing;
successful applicants will be notified by phone no later than August 18th.
Hunting blinds for both hunts will be drawn at the field before each hunt on
September 2.

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 hunt with the youth they accompany.  Youth hunters
and their guardians will only be allowed to hunt one of the time slots to
ensure maximum amount of participation. 

Whitley Creek and South Sand Creek Dove Fields will be closed to all hunting
on September 1st.  Beginning September 3rd, and throughout the remainder of
the 2017 dove season, hunting will be on a first-come, first-serve basis.
