The Kentucky Fish and Wildlife Commission will hold a special meeting May 7 at 12 p.m. (noon) Eastern, at the central offices of the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources (KDFWR) in Frankfort.

The special meeting will be limited to only the following agenda items:

(1) Requiring hunters or trappers who take a bobcat or otter to comply with the KDFWR toll-free telecheck harvest reporting requirement. If passed, the harvest of deer, wild turkey, bobcats and otters in Kentucky would then be reported using this system. Starting this fall, hunters and trappers would be required to report the taking of all four game species by midnight of the day the animal is recovered, and record a telecheck confirmation number on their hunter harvest log; and

(2) An executive session will be held, pursuant to KRS 61.810 (1), to discuss property acquisition and litigation.

Meetings of the Fish and Wildlife Commission are open to the public. The next regular quarterly Commission meeting will be held at 8 a.m. on Friday, June 4, 2004 in Frankfort.
