Applications Being Taken for Sandhill Crane Hunt

SANDHILl craneFRANKFORT, KY (11/10/12) – Applications for Kentucky's second Sandhill crane hunting season will be accepted online at www.fw.ky.gov from Nov. 15-30.
 
The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources will issue permits to 400 hunters this year through a randomized computer drawing. Applicants drawn for a hunt must pass an online identification test before they can receive a permit.
 
 Applicants must have a valid Kentucky hunting license or be license exempt when they apply. Kentucky Fish and Wildlife charges a $3 fee for each application.
 
Applications can only be made online at the Kentucky Fish and Wildlife website. Kentucky Fish and Wildlife will conduct the drawing by Dec. 5, with results made available to applicants online. Drawn hunters must complete the permit requirements, including the identification test, by Monday, Dec.10, to receive their permit and tags by opening day of the season.
 
Sandhill crane season opens Dec. 15, 2012 and closes Jan. 13, 2013. The daily and season bag limit for each hunter is two birds. Hunters must telecheck their game the same day it is taken. The season will close earlier if hunters reach the quota limit of 400 birds.
 
Participating hunters must complete a post-season survey by Jan. 25 to remain eligible for the following season.
 
Kentucky's season is statewide. However, Sandhill cranes may not be hunted in the Beaver Creek, Skaggs Creek and Peters Creek embayments of Barren River Lake Wildlife Management Area.
