Published Oct. 11, 2017

MOBILE, Ala. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Mobile District, is scheduled to host the fourth annual archery-only deer hunt for disabled hunters and wounded warriors at the Allatoona Lake Project Management Office, Dec. 4-5, 2017.

The annual deer hunt provides outdoor recreation opportunities for individuals who have a permanent physical condition that severely impairs their mobility and as a way to give back to our Nation’s wounded warriors. 

Hunting blinds will be available by reservation only at McKinney Campground for Purple Heart recipients and hunters who are permanently confined to a wheelchair. Reservation requests will be taken October 13 through November 3 by phone or in-person, Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. In the event of an overflow of requests for hunting blinds, Allatoona Lake reserves the right to use a lottery to fill open spots.
