PIEDMONT, Mo. - The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Clearwater Lake Project Office, is announcing that applications are available for their annual mobility impaired deer hunt for non-ambulatory hunters as well as our annual deer hunt for veterans with service-related disabilities. Both hunts will take place on the same dates Nov. 6 and 7.  

Mobility impaired hunt applicants must be non-ambulatory individuals who have a permanent physical condition that severely impairs their mobility from either paralysis or amputation of lower extremities, which requires assistance from a wheelchair, braces, crutches, or other similar aids of mobility. Veteran applicants must have service-related disabilities. There will be three permits issued per hunt, allowing one deer per hunter.
Applications for the managed hunts are now available at the Clearwater Lake Project Office and online. To obtain an online application go here: Applicants can fill out the online form or download a printable application.

The Clearwater Lake Project Office has hosted a special hunt for nearly 20 years and is excited about this year’s opportunities. From a management standpoint, this hunt helps regulate the deer herd that resides on and around Clearwater Lake. Removing some of these deer will provide remaining animals with more food, reducing chances of over population, and maintaining an overall healthier deer herd.  Hunt applications, general lake/agency information, as well as maps are available on our website at:
