Waterfowl quota hunts at Rowan, Franklin hatcheries
Apply Soon for Youth-Mentor and Mobility Impaired Waterfowl Quota Hunts at State Fish Hatcheries
Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife
Frankfort, KY - Online applications are being taken Nov. 1-15 for youth and mobility-impaired waterfowl quota hunts at two state-owned fish hatcheries near Frankfort and Morehead. Hunts will be available each Saturday and Sunday in January 2020.
Hunts will be conducted at the Minor Clark Fish Hatchery in Rowan County and the Peter W. Pfeiffer Fish Hatchery in Franklin County.
"There are five blinds at Minor Clark hatchery and two blinds at the Pfeiffer hatchery," said Wes Little, migratory bird biologist for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. "Drawn hunters must provide their own decoys, place them and retrieve their own birds."
Interested youth or mobility-impaired waterfowl hunters may apply for one or more hunts online by visiting the Kentucky Fish and Wildlife homepage at fw.ky.gov and clicking on the "Hunt" tab, followed by the "Quota Hunts" tab. Applications must be submitted between Nov. 1-15.
Hunt dates in 2020 include Jan 4, 5; Jan. 11, 12; Jan. 18, 19; and Jan. 25, 26. Youths younger than age 16 may apply for these quota hunts. A mentor age 18 or older must accompany the youth hunter. A mentor and youth drawn for a hunt may invite two additional youth hunters or a youth and second mentor to hunt with them. Selected mobility-impaired hunters may only have one assistant in the blind with them.
Drawn hunters will receive a quota hunt permit in the mail in late November notifying them of the dates for which they were drawn, detailed maps and other instructions concerning the hunt.
If not completed already, waterfowl hunters must go online at the Kentucky Fish and Wildlife website at fw.ky.gov and fill out the Harvest Information Program (HIP) survey before they are legal waterfowl hunters.
