Fish and Wildlife Commission Notes

FRANKFORT, Ky. – The Kentucky Fish and Wildlife Commission at its quarterly meeting March 4 proposed bear season occur one week earlier than in past years and recommended deer zone changes for two counties.

The Commission proposed to the General Assembly that bear season be one week sooner on Dec. 10 and 11, 2011. Winter weather plagued the first two seasons. Moving the season forward one week could improve hunter opportunity. The Commission also recommended making it illegal to take bears from dens.

It also recommended changing Rowan county to Zone 3 and Lee County to Zone 4.
