  • Check your hunting/fishing license

    By the time you read this, your 2010 Kentucky Hunting and Fishing License has run out. Time to get your new one before hitting the bass waters or turkey woods.
    If you like to “do it all” in our outdoors you should really consider the Kentucky sportsman’s license. With that, and your federal “Duck Stamp,” you can hunt and fish for all “regular” species in all “regular” seasons.
    Musky, bass, panfish, doves, turkey (spring and fall), deer, etc. are covered…but not elk!
