Thu, March 01, 2018

Lake Shelbyville - The 29th Annual Deer Hunt for People with Disabilities,
hosted by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Wolf Creek State Park will be
held November 16 through November 18, 2018.  Applications are available for
pickup at the Lake Shelbyville Project Office, online at or ma,il by contacting the
Environmental Stewardship Department at 217-774-3951 Ext. 7049. 

Applicants must possess a state-issued disabled person identification card
or a disabled veteran identification card.  This year, 10 spots will be held
for Wounded Warriors.  All disabled veterans wounded in combat are
encouraged to apply.  Applications must be submitted by March 30, 2018 to
the Lake Shelbyville Project Office, 1989 State HWY 16, Shelbyville, IL
On April 2, 2018, 25 applicants will be selected by drawing to participate
in the hunt during the first Illinois firearm season.  Previous hunter
participants have enjoyed morning and afternoon hunts from ground blinds and
elevated stands, catered meals, and free lodging. Over the past five years,
average success rates per year are near 70 percent. 

Without the help of the Whitetails Unlimited Chapter Area 51, the Lake
Volunteers Association, the IDNR and numerous volunteers this event would
not be possible.  Last year, volunteers performed nearly 300 hours of
service to help make the hunt a successful experience for individuals that
might not get this type of hunting opportunity anywhere else.  Some of the
tasks carried out by volunteers included getting hunters to and from their
blinds, carrying the hunter’s gear, handling harvested deer, and setting up
meals.  For further information on this event, or if you would like to
volunteer for this event, please contact Park Ranger Cory Donnel at
(217)774-3951 Ext. 7001 or via email .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
