The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is taking applications from youth hunters who would like to participate in a special muzzleloader deer hunt Dec.12 and 13 in the Ozark Isle Park/Dry Run area on Bull Shoals Lake. Eight permits will be issued to hunter education graduates 15 years old and under.

Applicants must submit a completed application form, including their hunter education identification number, by Nov. 27. USACE officials in Mountain Home, Arkansas have scheduled the random drawing and hunter notification on Nov. 30.
This hunt provides access and hunting blinds to help youth enjoy a safe and successful outdoor recreational experience. This opportunity helps create an interest in conservation, the outdoors, and to develop a good hunting ethic, while improving the deer herd in this area.

An unarmed adult, over 21 years old, must accompany youth hunters during the hunt. Youth hunters will be limited to muzzleloaders only.
Centers for Disease Control and Preventions recommendations for COVID-19 such as masks and social distancing will be in place while checking in for the hunt and checking in any harvested deer after the hunt.

Application forms may be picked up beginning Oct. 28 at the USACE office at 324 West 7th Street in Mountain Home, Ark., or by contacting the hunt organizer at 870-425-2700 ext. 1433.
