Kentucky's First Sandhill Crane Hunt Applications Start Tomorrow
Kentucky is ready to start the application process for their first sandhill crane season. Tomorrow hunters can find an application online at Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources website, www.fw.ky.gov. Hunters can turn in one application, at a cost of $3 per application. Applications will be accepted until November 30th. Then 400 hunters will be randomly selected through a computer draw on December 5th.
To get the sandhill hunting license the hunter must pass an online identification test first. Then the license is good for up to 2 sandhill cranes. Hunters must use the Telecheck system to report their harvest on the day it is harvested. The season will close once 400 cranes have been killed or on January 15, 2012. The season starts on December 17th. From FW.KY.gov.
