KY Hunter Education classes to revert back to normal in May

The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Hunter Education video range-day option will not be available after May 1st of this year.

The Hunter Education video range option was established as a response to COVID-19 as staff and volunteers were unable to host in-person hunter education courses. Since Fish and Wildlife has the ability to host in-person courses once again, they are moving away from the video range days at the beginning of May.

The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources says they will continue to offer multiple ways to earn hunter education. To accommodate those who still need their hunter education certificate before hunting in Kentucky, they are offering instructor-led classes and online courses with in-person range days. They also offer a temporary one-year hunter education exemption permit online for free.

All hunters born on or after January 1, 1975 are required to carry a valid hunter education course completion card in addition to the appropriate Kentucky hunting license.
