FRANKFORT, Ky. Orders are now being taken for one of the most anticipated publications offered by the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources: the new Kentucky Afield Outdoor Calendar.

In addition to its outstanding photography, the calendar has all kinds of information for the outdoor enthusiast: Proposed hunting season dates for 2014, what’s happening in nature each month, scheduled stockings of the Fishing in Neighborhoods (FINs) lakes, hunting and fishing tips, moon phases, meteor showers and more.

“Deer hunters especially are going to love this issue,” said Kentucky Afield Editor Dave Baker. “Instead of just doing a statewide top 100 deer list, we’ve broken it down into individual counties. Now hunters can determine if they’ve taken the biggest trophy in their area. We were surprised to see a couple of Kentucky’s 120 counties still haven’t registered a trophy buck.”

Outdoor calendars are included with each subscription to Kentucky Afield, the official publication of the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. To receive the 2014 calendar as part of a subscription, a person must subscribe by Nov. 18. Subscriptions received after this deadline might receive the 2015 calendar in December 2014 instead.

Subscribe online at www.fw.ky.gov, the Kentucky Fish and Wildlife website. Rates are $10 for one year or $18 for two years.

Individual copies of the calendar also are available for $7.50 apiece by ordering online. Calendars will be mailed in December and remain on sale while supplies last.

“Magazine subscriptions or calendars make great Christmas presents for the hunter or angler who has everything,” Baker said. “Grandparents stumped for what to get their grandkids for Christmas find this an easy and inexpensive solution.”
