The first quota deer hunt scheduled for the Oak Ridge Wildlife Management Area on Oct. 20-21 has been cancelled by the U.S. Department of Energy. The cancellation comes as a result of a security breach that occurred in July at the Y-12 facility and the ongoing safety and security evaluation on the Oak Ridge Reservation. Only the Oct. 20-21 hunt is affected. The November and December 2012 Oak Ridge deer hunts will continue as scheduled.

The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency will refund the money to all impacted hunters who paid an application fee for the quota hunt and will award them a priority point for this year. Official notification will be mailed soon. For any additional questions concerning the cancellation, contact the Oak Ridge Reservation Wildlife Management Coordinator at 865-241-9421 or the TWRA Region III Office at 931-484-9571.
