A youth deer hunt will be taking place for ten lucky hunters this weekend in Shelbyville in surrounding recreation areas that are usually closed for the hunting weekend. A drawing took place where young hunters applied for the spot and now will be able to take on the hunt with their adult counterparts.
Brock Key a Park Ranger for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers says that names were basically pulled out of a hat for this year's winners and wished the hunters best of luck.
Park Ranger Key says that necessary areas will be closed to provide safety to motorists and attendees of Lake Shelbyville. Sullivan Beach, Whitley Creek, Coon Creek, Possum Creek, and the entirety of Wilborn Creek will be closed this weekend.
Lake Shelbyville and the US. Army Corps of Engineers wish every hunter a safe and successful hunt.
For information on the youth hunt or areas to avoid this weekend contact Park Ranger Tanner Coleman at 217-774-3951, ext. 7002.
