Public hunting in Kentucky. (this should be a sticky)

Postby KyFowl20 » Sat Oct 05, 2013 3:44 pm

This should be a sticky. It seems that almost every other new thread is a new member who googles KY duck hunting and decides they are going to join and ask about public hunting. That being said, this thread is for all the guys and gals who get on this forum asking for public hunting info. Most everyone on this site who hunts public land has spent tons of time, and gas money to kill birds on public ground in KY. If you have questions about public hunting, post up here. You might get fortunante enough to recieve a private message in response to your post, or even an invite from members who frequent here. This is mainly for general info such as boundaries, grey areas in our state laws, or obvious public ground that no one cares to share. If you want to be successful, you have to do your homework, it is rarely handed to you in the form of a post.
Good luck to all KY newcomers and newbies to the sport of waterfowling!! :beer: .

I have a question that I have not been able to get a clear answer on no matter where I look. Basically, what is the law regarding hunting on public waters in Kentucky? I know that any navigable body of water is open to fishing and "temporary anchorage", but does that include setting up for waterfowl? Also, what about the Ohio and Licking Rivers? I read somewhere once, though for the life of me I cannot find it again, that you could hunt on the Ohio outside the I-275 bridges in NoKy, and something similar near Louisville. Is that correct?

Thanks in advance.

Call headquarters and tell them you have a question about a law you would like cleared up. They will give you a contact for an answer. I've have done this in the past and it worked for me.

You was a new guy once and judging by your TNA and YOLO sig lines your still a top water at best. I am a sportsman I enjoy the sport. This BBDH attitude is what's wrong not only with duckhunting but this country. I can promise you this. Everything you are doing as far as hunting goes has been done before by somebody else and probably at a better rate. If you don't want to vomit all your info on the web send them a PM, but being an arse for the sale of bein an arse is silly.

It's simple. Public hunting info should be a sticky. I was not being an butthead at all. I get tired of wading through "tell me where to hunt threads". Get out and do your own footwork. That's how I have always done things.

I don't think that is an option. I didn't get the parole option from the judge so will have to serve out the remaining time left on my sentence.

the truth is, he asked for his own ban to be extended. he needed a break, and couldn't trust himself to stay away. i mean, what with all the shenanigans and goings on over there, can you really blame him?

I have hunted there quite a bit and it is definitely not worth it just as a place to duck hunt. Decent days can be had but they are not common. It has designated blinds you have to hunt out of so you can't really setup where the birds want to be. Fishing can be pretty good though.

There's lots. It's the seeing/killing ducks that's less common.

Having hunted with this guy, I can confirm that he's telling the truth...

Hey guys,

I live in the Oldham County area and my brother and I have always leased and hunted properties away from our area or in other states. We've currently looking for some people that are accepting or wanting to join a group to try and hunt whenever we can each season publicly. We don't mind using our decoys, vehicles to transport, etc (we just don't have a boat) and we are looking for walk-in areas, etc to hunt on. No huge expectations as this is a sparse part of KY but it beats driving hours on end and having the wife and family upset every time we go out that far, hah. Thanks for any help fellas. We're both 30 and 34 if the age matters to anyone, lol. Thanks!
