The way I read the hunting guide ..If you are hunting on your own land you do not need to purchase tags or Liscense??, I just wonder how all that reflects in the telecheck system.

Yes,I understand you still need to check them in but the part on the telecheck system where it asks if you harvested the animal on public or private land...Couldn't anyone just say they killed a deer or turkey on private land all though they were not on their land. I wonder how many people actually hunt and kill a deer or turkey on land other than theirs and dont buy liscence or tags. Just dont seem right to me. I always buy tags and liscense but rarely hunt anywhere but on my own land.

Every place is private land, unless it's on a WMA. So the most important question is "Was the animal taken on statewide license, landowner, senior disabled, etc...? You would respond Landowner, then Private Land.

You think that throughs off the check system. I wonder how many thousand never get called in. No way that system can be at all accurate.

I hunt on my dads farm so I never by license or tags, I shot a buck last year and reported it on the telecheck, about 2-3 months later I got a call from the game warden, just asking me questions about it and all was good to go!

I have always understood the rules to be that if the land is in your name, you do not have to buy tags or a license. But If my name is not on the deed then I have to have a license and tags..You may want to check into that before you could get into trouble...

yes sir, explained everything to the Game Warden and he said "everything was good to go!"

Also, it was all good to go that my boys killed deer on the same land as well!

KENTUCKY HUNTING & TRAPPING GUIDE

WHO DOES NOT NEED A HUNTING LICENSE OR PERMIT:

In some cases, a resident hunter may not be required to buy a hunting license or permits to hunt deer or turkey. Here are those situations:

Ky resident owners of farmlands, their spouses & dependent children hunting upon their own farm lands during an open season.

Tenants, their spouses & dependent children hunting on farmlands where they reside and work.

I do NOT have a farm but have a big lot out in the county. I am going to hunt within my own lot boundaries. (About 2 acres) Do I need the deer tags? I have a sportsmans license and would buy tags if hunting elsewhere. If that 8 pointer shows his face on my camera KABLAM!

Duke D I was just wondering and not accusing or anything like that. But are you a dependent or are you independent and on your own. The reason I ask, is that the way interpreted it, is if you are independent then you might be required to buy a hunting a license and tags. And I know from your previous posts that you had a clarified with a game warden last year. I was just wondering on that, not trying to offend.

No offense taken, I just wanted to post that up for the original thread starter who had his doubts in the beginning.

The key words in those lines are "farmland". That is waht I was told by fish and wildlife.

I wonder how many thousands of hunters didnt drive the deer to a check station? I bet just as many if not more. Many guys living in the sticks would have to load up the deer and haul it who knows how far. I bet many of these deer went straight to the barn and never saw a check station.

I was told that unless my father (whom the property name is in) includes me on his taxes as a dependant child that I have to have a license to hunt on it period, even though it is in my family, and we farm it, but our main income is not the farm, so unless you make more then 50% of your income or more from the farm you need a license. I have to buy them every year. I don't agree with it, but I was told that by a warden who showed me it in the books and looked it up in the statutes(sp?) as well.

So before I went out on a publiic forum whch is read by wardens alot, Trust me they do I have been contacted by them three times about stuff on here, I would make sure I was right.

Not wanting to make you upset, but I don't want to see you get in trouble.

If you have the sportsman, you already have tags....they are included:D The only thing you will need to buy in addition to the sportsmans license would be bonus tags and the federal waterfowl stamp if you hunt ducks/geese.

I have 7 acres of wooded land in the county. My home is on the edge of that land. Would I be able to hunt deer on it without a license?

You might want to check to see if the Department of Fish & Game if seven acres would be a farm.

Here is an email I received back from KY Fish & Wildlife this morning:

Jim,

Thanks for your question. As long as your name is on the deed, you would not need a license to hunt.

If you need more information, just let me know.

If I was to hunt Deer on my own land, 7 acres, am I considered a license-exempt hunter?? Or do I need to purchase a license?? I live on the land. It is not farm land but forest. Thank you.
Jim.
