When Kentucky’s 2018 deer season opens Sept. 1, a number of new regulations will be in place.
Deer hunters should note the following changes for the upcoming season:
•The modern gun deer season has been lengthened in Zones 3 and 4 and will now be 16 days across all zones, opening Nov. 10 and continuing through Nov. 25, 2018.
•The statewide and youth deer permits now allow for the harvest of up to four deer. While the harvest allotment for statewide and youth deer permits has increased, the one-buck rule remains in place statewide.
