Smithville Lake Disabled Hunt and Eagle Day Blinds

The Smithville Lake disabled managed deer hunt is held each year during the last weekend of the fall firearms deer season. Up to 75 disabled hunters applied for 63 blinds around Smithville Lake. Hunters who were not initially drawn often have a chance to hunt the second day. The hunt is designed to provide a deer hunting opportunity for persons with a permanent disability. In addition, two youth hunts, spring turkey and fall deer, are held annually at Smithville Lake. The blinds are also used for the annual Eagle Day event. Funding will help cover the cost of fiberglass hunting blinds.
