FRANKFORT, Ky. — The Kentucky Fuel Corporation properties in eastern Kentucky are no longer open to public hunting.
Kentucky Fuel’s hunting access agreement with the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources is no longer active, returning the property to private status.
The change occurred after publication of the 2017-18 Kentucky Hunting and Trapping Guide. Kentucky Fish and Wildlife has updated its online version of the guide to reflect this change. The guide is available at the department’s website, fw.ky.gov.
Hunters are asked to respect Kentucky Fuel Corporation private property and not trespass on it.
Kentucky Fish and Wildlife still has 20 areas open for public hunting in the southeast region of the state, including more than 100,000 acres for elk hunting. Maps and detailed information on each area are available online at fw.ky.gov.
