Kentucky’s spring wild turkey hunting season will open statewide April 17 and close May 9. The youth-only season will be April 3-4.
The Kentucky Fish and Wildlife Commission, at its August meeting, recommended April’s second Saturday as a permanent general season opener, but their proposal has not yet completed the legislative approval process.
The new license year begins March 1 and already hunters are beginning to plan hunts. Therefore, as in the past, this year’s opener will fall on the Saturday closest to April 15.
