wkoutdoors deerWESTERN KY (8/2/13) – Information about quota hunts and public land hunting has moved out of the printed fall hunting guide and is now available online only at fw.ky.gov. People may apply for quota hunts during the month of September only.
 
The change follows the migration of quota hunt applications from paper forms to online and telephone several years ago.
 
The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources is working to increase the use of technology to increase customer service. Placing quota hunt and public lands information online allows the department to update information immediately, instead of making people wait until a new guide is published.
 
Kentucky Fish and Wildlife conducts quota hunts on public lands for deer, pheasant, quail, upland birds and waterfowl. The department's website details hunt dates and other quota hunting information. Hunters may apply for these hunts online at fw.ky.gov or by calling 1-877-598-2401. The non-refundable application fee is $3 for each hunter.
 
Hunters and trappers who want a physical copy of what's online will be able to print out the pages. Customers with additional questions about seasons or regulations can call the department at 1-800-858-1549 from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (Eastern) on weekdays, or e-mail the Information Center at: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
 
Printed copies of the 2013-14 Kentucky Hunting and Trapping Guide will be available in early August wherever licenses are sold. The annual guide, which is now available on the department's website, details seasons, bag limits and other regulations for deer, elk, bear, turkey, small game and furbearers.
