New Harvest Record Set for Modern Gun Deer Season

Frankfort, KY - A record 106,797 deer were taken over Kentucky's 16-day modern gun season that concluded Nov. 25, topping the previous record from 2015 by almost 1,400 deer.

"We anticipated an increase in harvest for the season due to several changes in deer regulations implemented earlier this year," said Gabe Jenkins, Deer and Elk Program coordinator for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources.

The Kentucky Fish and Wildlife Commission proposed the regulation changes after several meetings with deer hunters, officials and other stakeholders from across the state. The changes included expanding the modern gun deer season to 16 days statewide, which added six additional hunting days in some areas. Other changes adjusted statewide and youth deer permits to allow for the harvest of up to four deer and reclassified 32 counties to a less restrictive zone.

While the harvest in the season's first 10 days was average compared to recent years, there was a significant increase in the final six days thanks to the statewide expansion.
