    In past deer seasons I would hunt in multiple places throughout KY so of course I would just buy a resident license. This year I didn't get out at all and have planned all along to just bow hunt real hard these next two weeks for does on my property alone. I know landowners are exempt from purchasing a license but must meet the other requirements (tagging and telecheck)...so what exactly do I need to do after letting the air out of a doe? How do you guys tag them in this situation? Is there a license exempt option when you call telecheck?

    Thanks

    When you call telecheck just follow the options for landowner. The procedure is exactly the same as with a statewide license just wait for the option that you need. I still write all of the information down that you normally would with a regular license, I use the back of my fishing license or trout stamp for this. I in the past have done the same as you and hunted multiple farms, but this year I stayed and hunted only my farm. This process works the same with turkey's as well.

    you can get a harvest log at any license dealer or print one off the kyf&g website. when you call it in, just follow the prompts.

    What they said. This is actually the first year in many that I've hunted OFF my property. I've used the landowner exemption for quite a while.

    Just call it in to telecheck, there's an option for landowner.

    Make sure you record the confirmation number.

    Thanks a lot guys. I knew it was simple but then again, that information was not in the guide. I didn't want to find myself entering a deer on telecheck without a license and looking like a big poacher.

    I'm surprisingly excited right now for the hunting ahead. I had to miss November hunting for the first time and am really looking to whack some does with my bow over the next week and a half. Love going into the woods knowing any deer that walks by is eligible for the death stamp.

    in the guide on pg 12 & 13.

    Completing the hunter harvest log:
    • If you have a paper license or permit,
    simply fill in the blanks on the back as
    indicated on page 13.
    ALL hunters not required to have a
    license/permit, or who have only a license
    authorization number, must create
    their own hunter harvest log and
    follow the same requirements as noted
    on page 13 after taking these species.

    I often times just hunt my own land but still pay for the license and stuff just to give the department a little extra money for what they do, I figure its the least I can do after all their hard work.
