Many archery hunters in Kentucky will spend the last long weekend of summer getting an early jump on fall.
Kentucky’s 2016-17 deer season kicks off the first Saturday in September with the start of the 136-day archery season. Anticipation has been building for months.
“Everything right now points toward another good season,” said Gabe Jenkins, deer program coordinator for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources.
That is welcome news following a string of record harvests.
