Kentucky: Subcommittee Meets Next Tuesday to Discuss Sandhill Crane Hunting Season

Wednesday, October 5, 2011

On Tuesday, October 11, a subcommittee of eight members will meet to discuss the proposed plans for Kentucky’s new sandhill crane hunting season.  Already approved by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, this subcommittee is the final step before the proposed plan can go into effect.

If all goes as planned, the sandhill crane hunting season could begin as early as December 17.  Land east of the Mississippi has not seen sandhill cranes hunted in over a century due to a decrease in the species’ population.  Over the last three decades their population has grown more than 300% to the point where hunters in thirteen states currently enjoy being able to participate in the hunting and proper management of this species.  

The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources (KDFWR) is confident that the thirty-day hunting season would result in approximately 400 birds harvested, which is less than one percent of the total population.  The goal of the KDFWR proposal is to allow the greatest possible participation for hunters, while being certain the sandhill crane population is properly maintained for future generations.

Please contact members of the Administrative Regulations Review Subcommittee and respectfully urge them to SUPPORT the proposed plan for the Kentucky sandhill crane hunting season.  Contact information can be found below.
