Flooding downsizes deer hunt

By STEVE VANTREESE outdoors@paducahsun.com

A late season open deer hunt at West Kentucky Wildlife Management Area near Grahamville Saturday through Monday will go on as scheduled â “ but it will be slightly downsized because of Ohio River flooding.

With floodwaters covering part of the river-flanking wildlife area, the number of hunter openings for the limited hunt will be reduced from 140 to 125.

The first 125 hunters to register at the management area's check station between 4:30 and 8 p.m. today be allowed to participate in the three-day hunt. If those spots aren't claimed today, they will be awarded first-come, first-granted 4:30 a.m.-7 p.m. during the hunt Saturday through Monday.

The annual open hunt is scheduled to help control deer numbers on the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources-managed area. It allows the use of only slug-loaded shotguns and muzzleloading firearms.

More information is available from the West Kentucky WMA office at 270-488-3233.
