SRS Deer Hunt Registration Begins

web posted July 3, 2014

AIKEN – More than 600 hunters are expected to participate in the annual SRS Deer Hunt Program from Nov. 1-Dec. 6, 2014 at the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Savannah River Site (SRS). For the general public, six hunts will be held on Saturdays, beginning Nov. 1, and ending on Dec. 6.  A hunt for wounded warriors and mobility-impaired hunters will be scheduled in October.

Hunters interested in participating in this year’s SRS Deer Hunt Program may apply at the following web site: http://www.srs.gov/general/deer_hunt/hunt.htm

A lottery system is used each year to select participants for the SRS Deer Hunt Program.

The need for this program is reevaluated annually based on the size of the site herd and the number of animal-related vehicular accidents.

The program is managed by DOE’s primary contractor at SRS, Savannah River Nuclear Solutions (SRNS).  “We are pleased to announce that in cooperation with DOE and the U.S.D.A Forest Service, this year SRS will return to a full program to harvest deer, hogs and coyotes,” said SRNS deer hunt manager Joey Lott.

The reputation for big bucks and plentiful numbers of deer and hogs found throughout the 310 square miles of pristine fields and forest frequently draws hunters from across the nation to SRS each year.

According to Lott, the deer hunts at SRS have been an annual attraction to many local hunters for decades. “Though we’re pleased to have offered this opportunity to thousands of hunters over the years, what’s truly rewarding are the special hunts we organize for our military veterans, wounded warriors and mobility-impaired hunters,” added Lott.  “We’re honored to offer a way to say ‘thank you’ for your service in a way that is highly meaningful to many of our veterans and, at the same time, offer a hunt for those who love the sport, yet cannot participate without physical assistance.”
