  • Stay alert for 'free' hunting weekends

    Well it snuck up on me. Last weekend was the first youth only deer hunt. There's another on Dec. 29-30 which is a "free" weekend. This past weekend was simply "youth only" which might cause some confusion!
    In Kentucky resident and non-resident children under the age of 12 are not required to purchase licenses and permits?except elk lottery application.
    Both an annual hunting license and an additional permit are required for hunters 12 and older.
    Ages 12-15 require a youth hunting license plus a youth deer permit costing $10.
