September begins quota hunts for deer, upland birds and water fowl on state wildlife management areas in Kentucky. Hunters can apply through the Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources website at fw.ky.gov or by phone at 1-877-598-2401. Either option is available 24 hours a day. Applications for these quota hunts are not open until Sept. 1. The minimum charge to apply for a quota hunt is $3. Last year, the department received more than 11,000 quota hunt applications. The application period extends through Sept. 30 and results should be available in early October.
