Kentucky's rich hunting heritage predates the times of Boone and Walker. Several Native American tribes benefitted from Kentucky as a bountiful hunting ground. Fast forward a few hundred years and sportsmen in Kentucky have an abundance of game to hunt. A healthy whitetail deer herd that produces trophy bucks each and every season. A revitalized eastern wild turkey population gives turkey hunters in every county the possibility to harvest a bird. Many migratory birds pass through Kentucky along their annual journey through the continent.
A wealth of small game species can also be pursued throughout Kentucky. Now, the largest elk herd in the eastern United States is providing elk hunters with all new opportunities in eastern Kentucky. Over 80 Wildlife Management Areas are open to public hunting in Kentucky, as well as large portions of the Daniel Boone National Forest and Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area. Kentucky is a true sportsmen paradise. For more information, including licenses and permits, visit theKentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources.
