Welcome to Kingwood Township

Hunting on Kingwood Township Public Lands

Kingwood Township has several areas that are open to the public and suitable for deer hunting. Enjoyment of the land and the safety of our visitors is our primary concern. The Kingwood Township Committee allows deer hunting in Horseshoe Bend Park and the Ukarish Property in order to provide for better land management to restore damaged ecosystems without fear that excessive deer browse will make it impossible for native plants to return.

There is NO SUNDAY HUNTING and only a limited number of permitted hunters will be in the park at any one time - less than 1 per 20 acres at Horseshoe Bend Park.  It is recommended that during that time, non-hunters should wear blaze orange or confine visits to Sundays.

Permits to hunt these lands are available through a lottery system.  The deadline for the 2015-2016 season lottery submissions is August 21, 2015 - drawing August 24, 2015.
