PERRY, Kan. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Perry Lake announces the opening of the application process for its annual Special Archery Hunt at Longview and Rock Creek parks to be held Oct. 1 – Dec. 31, 2020 and Slough Creek park Oct. 16 – Dec. 31, 2020.  Applications are due Sept. 7, 2020.

This is a specially permitted, archery-only hunting event. Hunting is not usually allowed in the park areas at Perry Lake; however, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers hosts this annual hunt in areas that are closed to public hunting to prevent overpopulation of deer.

Hunters are randomly selected from a pool of applicants and assigned designated hunting units. In addition, hunters will choose a second hunter to hunt the assigned area with them. Each hunter is required to carry a special permit issued by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. All federal regulations and Kansas statutes apply.

Hunters can download applications online at https://www.nwk.usace.army.mil/Locations/District-Lakes/Perry-Lake/

For questions or to request an application, contact Park Ranger Wesley Henson by telephone at (785) 597-5144 or e-mail at wesley.j.henson@usace.army.mil. You may also visit the Perry Lake Information Center at 10419 Perry Park Drive, Perry KS 66073. Applications are due by 4:00 p.m., Monday, Sept. 7, 2020.
