Licenses, Permits for 2019-2020 License Year on Sale
By Dave Baker, Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife
Frankfort, KY - Licenses and permits to fish, hunt and trap in Kentucky in the coming license year are on sale now.
The 2019-2020 license year starts March 1. License and permit fees for Kentucky residents for the 2019-2020 license year are unchanged from the 2018-19 license year.
Prices on some options for non-residents have changed and include:
The Kentucky Fish and Wildlife Commission proposed new prices for these non-resident licenses and permits at its March 2018 meeting.
Periodic fee updates are necessary to keep pace with inflation and maintain the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources' financial stability into the future. The department receives its primary funding through revenue raised by the sale of hunting and fishing licenses, as well as federal excise taxes generated by the sale of hunting, fishing and shooting equipment and ammunition.
In another change for the 2019-2020 license year, the 15-day, non-resident fishing license has been eliminated. Fewer than 1,000 people each year were purchasing this license.
Licenses and permits are sold online through Kentucky Fish and Wildlife's website (fw.ky.gov) and at vendor locations across the state. A list of license agents by county is available on the department's website.
Kentucky is a top destination nationally for trophy deer and maintains the largest elk herd east of the Rocky Mountains. Anglers from throughout the central United States come to Kentucky to fish its waters, including the state's renowned trout fishery in the Cumberland River and the crappie fishery in Kentucky and Barkley lakes.
For more information about hunting and fishing opportunities in Kentucky, visit the department website at fw.ky.gov.
