Crossbow Season Expansion Moves Forward in Kentucky

On Tuesday, April 9th, the Kentucky Administrative Regulation Review Subcommittee (ARRS) approved a proposal to expand the season dates for the use of a crossbow to hunt whitetail deer throughout the state beginning this fall.

With these approved changes, the Kentucky crossbow season for whitetail deer will open on the 3rd Saturday in September and close on the 3rd Monday in January.

For the 2019-2020 season, this means that crossbows are legal for use from September 21st, 2019 through January 20th, 2020. Any legal resident hunter, regardless of age, can now use a crossbow to hunt whitetail deer during this time frame.

Blackout periods that crossbow hunters have had to observe during past seasons have now been removed.

Additionally, hunters under the age of 16 and over the age of 65 may hunt with a crossbow from September 7th, 2019 through January 20th, 2020.

Congratulations to the Kentucky Crossbow Federation on the successful approval of crossbow use expansion for archery deer season in the state of Kentucky! It is through the hard work of the Federation and countless other hunters who expressed their opinions on crossbow expansion that families in Kentucky now have a greater opportunity to share in the experience of archery hunting.
