As summer winds down, Kentucky archery hunters begin to dig in the closet for their camouflage clothing, check the condition of their bows and practice shooting at targets in the back yard.

Archery seasons for both turkey and deer open September 4, 2004 and close January 17, 2005. A fall turkey permit is required to hunt the fall archery season.

Fall turkey hunters may now use dogs to break up flocks. Fall archery turkey hunters may take two turkeys during the season of either sex, but may only take one bird per day.

Crossbows are not allowed for fall turkey archery hunting. Long bows, recurve bows and compound bows of any draw weight are legal. Bow hunters may take turkey during modern gun deer season if they possess a fall archery turkey permit.

During portions of the deer season when only bow equipment may be used, hunters must not carry firearms. If deer hunters use bows during the modern gun deer season, they must comply with all firearms season restrictions, zone guidelines and hunting requirements in effect for firearms deer season.

This includes the hunter orange clothing law.

During the bow only deer season, a hunter does not have to comply with the hunter orange clothing law. Crossbows are only legal during the designated crossbow deer hunting season.
