Elk Hunting Kentucky | Kentucky Elk Regulations

Kentucky Elk Baiting Regulations
Elk may not be hunted over bait on public or private lands within the elk zone. However, it is legal to hunt elk over bait outside the elk zone.

Elk Calling
A person shall not mimic the sound of an elk on public land open to elk hunting from Sept. 1 until the opening of the elk archery season.

Shooting Hours
Elk may only be hunted during daylight hours, from 30 minutes before sunrise to 30 minutes after sunset.

Elk Bag Limits
The season bag limit on elk is one per hunter per season, regardless of permit type. Hunters may not take an elk during a quota elk hunt and also take an elk out-of-zone during the same season. Elk hunters and those who accompany them, or any other person hunting public or private lands in the elk zone during firearm elk seasons, must comply with the hunter orange clothing law.

Elk Hunting Outside The Elk Zone
Elk may be taken from any county outside the zone by hunters who possess an annual Kentucky hunting license and an Out-of-Zone Elk Permit. These hunters must follow deer season regulations and use only the legal elk hunting equipment outlined above, but are not required to possess a Statewide Deer Permit.

Checking & Tagging
All elk must be telechecked. Hunters must call 1-800-245-4263 and report the harvest. See the “General Information” section for details.

Clothes help monitor climate and temperature and can make sure your target game animals can see or smell you. Our Synergy® camo pattern blends effectively with varied terrains from river bottoms and marshlands to sagebrush country to dense forests. This pattern is designed for early to late season hunting, blending with the foliage as it turns from summer greens and golds to fall oranges and browns. So, whether you’re stalking big game in the high country, antelope on sagebrush flats, whitetails in the river bottoms, ducks and geese in the marshlands or pheasants in open fields, we’ve got you covered.
