ASHDOWN, Ark. -- The Army Corps of Engineers is taking applications from hunters ages 6-15 who want to participate in a special deer hunt Nov. 7 at Millwood Lake.  Eight permits will be issued to young hunters who seek to experience the outdoors and have a great place to hunt that is normally closed to hunting.

     

Applicants must submit a completed application form to the Corps by Oct. 19.  A random drawing will be held Oct. 20 to select the eight hunters.  Applicants must have parental permission, and be accompanied by an adult assistant at least 21 years old on the day of the hunt.

     

This hunt will provide a great opportunity for youth hunters to hunt near food plots without pressure from other hunters in the woods.  Hunting blinds will be provided. 

Surveys have been conducted to ensure resources are properly conserved and public safety is considered.  Hunters must provide their own firearms.  Also, youth must be skilled enough to safely operate the firearms they bring to the hunt.  

Application forms may be obtained at the Corps’ Millwood Tri-Lakes Project Office at 1528 Highway 32 E, Ashdown, Arkansas or by calling 501-340-1462.
