The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will hold a Youth Deer Hunt at Lake Shelbyville this weekend on October 8th and 9th. The hunt will be conducted in portions of recreation areas previously closed for the season. As a safety precaution, Lone Point Campground, excluding the boat ramp, and all of Wilborn Creek, Opossum Creek and Whitley Creek Recreation Areas will be closed to vehicle and pedestrian traffic from 2:00 pm October 7th until 7:00 pm October 9th.
Those closings do include the boat ramps located within Opossum Creek, Wilborn Creek and Whitley Creek Recreation Areas. Those boat ramps remaining open during this weekend include Dam West, Lone Point, Lithia Springs and Bo Wood Recreation Areas, Wolf Creek and Eagle Creek State Parks as well as all secondary ramps.
