Kentucky opens more lands for public hunting

There are now more public hunting grounds in Kentucky.

The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources says they have opened six new properties adding more than 4,600 acres.

“Our surveys show that sportsmen and sportswomen want more places where they can hunt and fish,” said Commissioner Gregory K. Johnson. “These new public lands help us work toward that goal. We’re proud to offer these new opportunities where people can go and create lasting memories.” 

Locally, 217 acres have been added to the Boatwright Wildlife Management Area in Ballard County, and 842 acres has been added to the Big Rivers Wildlife Management Area and State Forest in Crittenden County.
