FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) – The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife says in a statement that it has begun accepting applications to participate in the upcoming sandhill crane hunting season.
The agency says applications are being accepted online at www.fw.ky.gov through Nov. 30.
The department will issue 400 permits through a computer drawing on Dec. 2 for the season that begins on Dec. 12. Hunters are limited to two birds. The season will close on Jan. 10, 2016 unless the quota limit of 400 birds is reached before then.
The birds can be hunted all over the state except in the Beaver Creek, Skaggs Creek and Peters Creek embayments of Barren River Lake Wildlife Management Area.
