Turkey ImageDeer BuckHunting is a popular recreational pursuit and is an integral part of our wildlife management program at Land Between The Lakes. In the absence of large predators, hunting helps to maintain healthy populations of such species as white-tailed deer.

With thousands of acres teeming with game and over 300 miles of undeveloped shoreline, LBL offers an impressive variety of hunting opportunities and more than 230 days a year of in-season hunting. White-tailed deer, wild turkey, squirrels, and other forest game species are abundant.

LBL offers annual spring turkey and squirrel hunts, fall/winter hunts for deer, waterfowl, and a variety of small game species. Hunters can also enjoy a variety of camping choices, from the convenience of our developed campgrounds to the rustic adventure of camping LBL's back-country.

All hunters must have an LBL Hunter Use Permit and applicable state licenses. To hunt deer with firearms, hunters must apply during the month of July and be drawn for a quota deer hunt permit. To hunt during the first several days of spring turkey season, hunters must apply during February and be drawn for a quota turkey hunt permit.
