Learn about Kentucky hunting seasons, areas and regulations
The rich Kentucky hunting and fishing heritage predates the times of Boone and Walker. Several Native American tribes benefited from Kentucky as a bountiful hunting ground. Fast forward a few hundred years and sportsmen in Kentucky have an abundance of game to hunt in every season. A healthy whitetail deer herd produces trophy bucks each and every year. A revitalized eastern wild turkey population gives turkey hunters in every region 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 the public during Kentucky hunting seasons, as well as large portions of the Daniel Boone National Forest and Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area. For more information, including Kentucky hunting seasons, required licenses and permit details, visit the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources.
