KY Afield Outdoors: Waterfowl season looks promising

By Lee McClellan

Frankfort, KY - The shot of cold that greeted Kentucky earlier in November pushed many waterfowl into the state, which should portend a great opening to the waterfowl hunting season on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 28.

"We have more birds early than we've had in a really long time," said John Brunjes, migratory bird coordinator for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. "We recently saw 20,000 to 30,000 ducks at Ballard Wildlife Management Area (WMA). We are in a better spot that we've been this early in the season in a long time."

Wes Little, migratory bird biologist for Kentucky Fish and Wildlife, said Sloughs WMA near Henderson held white-fronted and snow geese last week, likely pushed from the upper Midwest and Canada by the recent cold snap.

"I saw great numbers of ducks at Sloughs and there should be plenty of birds for opening day," Little said.

The heavy rainfall across Kentucky early in 2019 resulted in the record pool level at Lake Cumberland and extremely late planting of crops for waterfowl on wildlife management areas in western Kentucky.

KY lawmakers plan to file bipartisan red flag legislation

By Rebecca Hanchett

Frankfort, KY - Indiana's so-called "red flag law" has been on that state's book since 2005, but Clark County, IN, Prosecuting Attorney Jeremy Mull says he does not frequently use the established law in court.

"I use the law regularly but I do not use it frequently," Mull told the Interim Joint Committee on Judiciary today during a discussion on similar legislation that may be proposed in Kentucky. "I think last year I filed over 6,000 criminal cases in my county, and I filed around 12 of these."

The purpose of Indiana's law, says Mull, is to prevent someone who is considered to be a safety threat from buying or possessing firearms until their mental state can be assessed or the issue otherwise resolved. Three separate reviews must be met before that can happen, said Mull: law enforcement must find probable cause that the person is a safety threat, a prosecutor must file an action in court, and a judge has to find "clear and convincing evidence" that an order is needed.

"I am confident that we have saved a lot of lives in Indiana with this law and that our state is safer because of it," Mull told the committee.
