F&W aquires and opens 1,112 acres in Breck Co.

This 1,112 acres will be a part of the Yellowbank WMA. I may be wrong, but I think this 1,000 acres was a part of the "Sturgis" property which I believe was a 20,000 + acre major hunting property ran by Thompson Center sold in 4 plots. Somebody may have to check me on that. Either way, it's big time hunting property on the Ohio River.

Kentucky Fish and Wildlife Opens More Than 1,000 Acresto Public in Breckinridge County
Mar 12, 2009

Frankfort, Ky. – More than 1,000 acres of highly coveted hunting ground in Breckinridge County is now open to the public.The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources today announced the acquisition of 1,112 acres of property near the Ohio River, formerly owned by Kimball International Inc. The new Town Creek Tract will join the existing 5,666 acres of Yellowbank Wildlife Management Area (WMA).“I’m just tickled to death that we were able to get this property, and the sportsmen and sportswomen will be happy with it, too,” said Third District Fish and Wildlife Commission Member Tony Brown. “We were interested in it because of the diversity it offers – it has access to the Ohio River, gives people a place to duck hunt, and has plenty of timber for deer and turkeys.”Karen Alexy, wildlife division director for Kentucky Fish and Wildlife, noted the property is located close to the Louisville area. “This acquisition is important because it provides more hunting opportunity within easy driving distance of the state’s biggest city,” she said. “This is part of the department’s continuing goal to provide more opportunities for hunters and anglers.”The property includes old field habitats as well as hundreds of acres of oak and hickory trees on steep to moderate slopes. The area supports abundant populations of squirrel, turkey and deer.The new acreage also includes a large backwater embayment of the Ohio River. An overgrown boat ramp on the property will be improved for use, and plans call for construction of two parking lots.Access is available at the Town Creek Bridge at KY 144, and off Holt Road near Stephensport. The new property, located east of KY 144, is not connected to the remainder of Yellowbank WMA. A map of the area is available online at Hunting seasons and regulations will be the same as the main tract of Yellowbank WMA. The area is open under statewide regulations for all squirrel, furbearer and turkey seasons. Rabbit and quail seasons will be open from Nov. 1 through Dec. 31. Deer season will be open statewide for archery, crossbow and youth firearms seasons. Bucks must have an outside antler spread of at least 15 inches.The Town Creek Tract is open to foot traffic only. For more information, contact Area Manager Ryan Taylor at (270) 547-6856, or the Kentucky Fish and Wildlife Information Center at 1-800-858-1549.
