    ccw while hunting-kentucky

    I'm sure i read somewhere that it is illegal to carry concealed while hunting in Kentucky. I have searched for hours for info on this and cant find any. If it is illegal , it should be listed in the "restricted carry zones" like everywhere else is..I emailed Fish and Wildlife but havent heard back..

    robere,
    I waterfowl hunt in a WMA known as a dope growing area. I always CC when I'm hunting there. The real challenge is figuring out how to carry in a way that will allow access when needed...in chest waders.

    Well it is just not fair to the deer if you walk up to them and they can not see the gun, that is why you have to wear florescent orange. I think they should also outlaw those camo deer stands!

    If it is not in the US Constitution then the Federal Government should not be doing it.

    Maybe i should specify. I bow hunt. But even if I gun hunted, I dont think its legal to carry a concealed firearm while hunting if the firearm isnt used for hunting.

    In the hunting and trapping guide 2006-2007 page 13 first column under archery season it says that a concealed carry permit does NOT allow you to carry a modern firearm during archery-only season.

    Hope this helps.

    As I read further it also doesn't allow it for crossbow season or muzzle loading season

    Can't find anything for turkey season

    if its concealed properly.... whats the problem? hard to prove you'd be hunting with a snubnose or subcompact unscoped auto. havent yet read the laws for ken-tuck, (embarassing, considering i was born there and rode more equine in the danville/lex area than anywhere else), but if you've got a bow in your hand, hunting license in your pocket, im pretty sure you arent required to inform DNR representives of your CCW status.

    Sounds like a loophole. Personally I'd contact your local game warden and see how he feels about it since he'd be the one to challenge you.

    Anyway, I understand wanting to follow the hunting laws, I've never poached anything and won't, but you aren't required to inform LEO's here unless they ask to see your permit, so concealed is concealed.
