Three quota hunts in both Kentucky and Tennessee during the first portion of the season require a prior application. In Kentucky, quota hunts include a two-day youth hunt for hunters (under age 16 on the Kentucky portion of LBL) April 9 – 10, a two-day hunt April 12 – 13, and a two-day hunt April 16 – 17.
In Tennessee, quota hunts include a two-day youth hunt (for hunters 6-16 years old on the Tennessee portion) April 9 – 10, a two-day hunt April 12 – 13, and a two-day hunt April 16 – 17. No hunting is permitted between these dates.
The non-quota hunting season, which does not require a prior application, is one 14-day hunt, April 18 – May 1 in Kentucky, and two 7-day hunts April 18 – 24 and April 25 – May 1 in Tennessee.
The Quota Hunt application fee will remain at $5 for an online application. Hunters can apply online at www.lbl.org Feb. 1 – 28. Applicants can check the website at www.lbl.org near the end of March to see if they were drawn.

Licensed motorized vehicles are only permitted on roads identified on the MVUM and on the LBL Recreation Map. Hunters will want to be sure to refer to the MVUM when scouting and hunting on LBL.
