Fishing

Any person who has established permanent and legal residence in Kentucky and resided here for at least 30 days immediately prior to applying for a license is considered a resident for the purpose of applying for an license. Full-time students enrolled in an institution of higher education for at least a six-month term and service personnel on permanent assignment in Kentucky are also considered residents. All others are considered nonresidents and are required, unless under the age of 16, to apply for a nonresident license.

All persons other than those under the age of 16 must complete and carry the proper license and permit to fish any Kentucky waters with the exception of resident owners of farmlands, his/her spouse and dependent children, who may fish on their land without a license. Tenants, their spouses and dependent children, may fish without a license on farmlands where they live and work. Additionally, resident servicemen on furlough of more than three days may fish statewide without a license, but must be able to provide proper identification and papers showing furlough status.

 

Hunting

All those hunting in Kentucky must carry a valid Kentucky annual or short term hunting license on their person while in the field, unless otherwise exempt. Hunters are also required to possess and carry additional permits to hunt deer, turkey, and migratory birds in Kentucky, unless exempt.

Any hunter under the age of 16 may purchase a junior hunting license instead of a regular license. A junior hunting license cannot be issued without the written consent of a parent or guardian. Furthermore, a parent or guardian must sign the junior hunting license. A junior hunting license is valid from the time of purchase through the end of February, regardless of whether or not the hunter turns 16 after the license is issued.

Hunting license, permits, and authorization numbers are nontransferable. Licenses and permits must be signed and the hunter information portion completed before going afield. Hunters who own land in Kentucky but reside out-of-state must purchase non-resident licenses.

All hunters born on or after January 1, 1975, holding a permit must carry a verification of completion of a hunter education course on their person while hunting. A bow hunter not in possession of a firearm while hunting may carry a valid National Bow-hunter Education Program course completion card in lieu of the hunter education course card. Children 10 years old and younger may hunt without an education card if accompanied by an adult who is in a position to take immediate control of the child's bow or firearm at all times while the juvenile is hunting. One adult cannot accompany more than two children in one hunting session. Hunter education cards obtained in other states are valid in Kentucky. Click here for more information on hunter education.

 

Trout Permit

A trout permit is required for anglers who wish to keep trout. Residents with a senior or disabled Kentucky combination hunting/fishing license, resident owners or tenants of farmlands, their spouses and dependent children wishing to fish on their own land, and persons under 16 are not required to obtain a trout license.

 

Senior/Disabled Combination License

Kentucky residents 65 years of age and older, veterans 50% disabled as a result of service-connected disability, or residents with a permanent disability (who must obtain an authorization card from the Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources by calling 1-800-858-1549) are eligible for a Senior/Disabled combination license, which is available at a discounted price of $5.00. Holders of this license are not required to hold any other state permits to hunt deer, turkey, or waterfowl. However, holders must purchase a federal waterfowl stamp before hunting waterfowl.

Persons 65 and older must show proof of age and residency to purchase the license. In addition to the license, the holder must carry proof of residency and age (driver's license) or disability on their person while hunting.

 
 

A trapping license must be obtained by all trappers, regardless of age, residency, or physical condition. Resident landowners, tenants, and their dependents and spouse trapping on their own property are also required to hold a valid trapping license.
