Lake Shelbyville is preparing for it's Deer Hunt for People with Disabilities and Wounded Warriors Weekend. The hunt is taking place from November 18th-20th. Sarah Randall, Natural Resource Specialist, with the Army Corps of Engineers at Lake Shelbyville said the participants applied for the hunt in March, and are now very eager to get going. She said the lake is expecting 20-25 hunters to take place in the event, and most of their recreation areas will be open for them.
Randall said after the hunter makes a kill, their volunteer will get the deer for them and the hunter will have a couple options of what to do with the meat.
Sign ups for the hunt are closed, but the Lake is looking for more volunteers for the event. To volunteer contact Lake Shelbyville at 217-774-2244. Randall appeared on the NEWSTALK WTIM Morning Show live from our Shelbyville Studios.
