Bill Aims To Reduce Deer Damage

Mar 7, 2017

The House is being asked to urge the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife to take steps to help reduce deer-related property or vehicle damage in certain regions of the Commonwealth, after the Senate passed a bill Friday.

FRANKFORT, KY  - Over the objections of a bevy of birdwatchers, a sandhill crane hunting season may soon become a reality in Kentucky.   Sandhill cranes are large, migratory birds that were almost completely wiped out in the early 1900's, but rebounded with federal protection. The population east of the Mississippi River now numbers around 60,000 and many of the birds winter in Kentucky.
