Hunting in Kentucky is a tradition that predates Western settlement, and continues to be a mainstay for Kentuckians and visitors all across the Commonwealth. Nearly 100 Wildlife Management Areas and hundreds of thousands of acres of federally managed public lands make Kentucky a prime destination for the traveling hunter, no matter their game of choice. Before your visit, obtain your hunting license from the Kentucky Department of Fish & Wildlife. And if you’re looking for an organized hunting trip, search for guides below.
