Commission Chairman Stephen Glenn said hunter input during the recent series of department Town Hall meetings is prompting the Commission to take another look at its December meeting action that added six days of bucks-only hunting opportunity to the current 10-day season for these zones.

“A number of deer hunters expressed their concerns and indicated their desires that we bring this issue back up for discussion,” said Glenn. “It will be heard in the February Wildlife Committee meeting and also on the agenda for the full commission’s review in March.”

The Commission took the December action in response to hunters from zones 3 and 4 who are restricted to weekend hunting because of work or other obligations. The bucks-only extension was a way to give them additional days in the field to harvest their single buck without impacting herd growth. Deer hunting pressure Monday through Friday in the season’s second week is typically extremely light.

The Wildlife Committee meeting is scheduled for Feb. 4, 2011 at the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources headquarters in Frankfort. The full commission will meet March 4, 2011 at 8 a.m. Commission and committee meeting dates and agendas are posted on the department website at www.fw.ky.gov.
