New hunting, fishing licenses required for new license year

State wildlife officials say Kentucky’s new hunting and fishing license year began this week and continues through the last day of February 2024.

New licenses are required annually, except for the 3-year fishing license the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife offers.

A 1-day or 7-day hunting license is valid only for the period shown on license while resident and non-resident youth under the age of 12 are not required to purchase licenses or permits.
