KY state officials asking hunters for more info on deer herds

Hunters in Kentucky this upcoming season will be asked to provide additional information about harvested deer and elk.
    
All deer and elk taken by hunters in the state must be reported to the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources either by phone or online.
    
The additional information sought will help state biologists better estimate the size and age of the state’s deer and elk herds.
    
Hunters reporting an antlerless male deer will now be asked to distinguish it as a male fawn or as an adult that has shed antlers. Otherwise, hunters will be asked to count the total number of antler points measuring one inch or longer for deer and elk and indicate if the outside antler spread is greater or less than 11 inches.
