Department of Fish and Wildlife
Public meeting on proposed deer zone change in Breckinridge County set for Jan. 28
Ky. – Officials with the
Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources are inviting the public to
attend an informational meeting about a proposed deer hunting zone change for
next season in Breckinridge County.
The meeting is set for 8 p.m. Eastern time/7 p.m.
Central time Jan. 28 at the Breckinridge County Extension Office’s Community
Building, 1377 South KY 261, Hardinsburg.
Epizootic Hemorrhagic Disease outbreaks in 2007 and 2010, Breckinridge County
was changed to a Zone 3. It previously had been a Zone 2. With the deer herd
recovering, the Kentucky Fish and Wildlife Commission recently voted to change
Breckinridge County back to its original Zone 2 designation for the 2015-16 season.
Zone 2 status offers a 16-day modern gun deer season compared to 10 days in
Zones 3 and 4.
Fish and Wildlife officials are holding the public meeting to present the
latest information about deer population numbers in the county, explain the
zone change recommendation and hear public input about the zone change
