Black Bear Hunt Set

  • {Frankfort, Kentucky}...Beginning December 10th, hunters can participate in a two-day quota hunt for black bears in Harlan, Letcher and Pike counties. This year the hunt occurs on the second weekend in December, rather than the third weekend as it has since 2009. The hunt is open to any Kentucky resident who purchases an over-the-counter bear permit. Unless exempt, a person must also possess a valid Kentucky annual hunting license. This is the third year of a hunting season for bears in the state. The quota harvest is limited to 10 bears total or five female bears, whichever limit hunters reach first.
