The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources a public meeting to discuss the possibility of a hunting access program in the 14-county Conservation Reserve and Enhancement Program area June 20 in Barren County.

"We are discussing leasing acreage for small game hunting," said Ben Robinson, assistant director of the Wildlife Division of the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. "It is a hunter access program. Several Midwestern states have a similar model."

The meeting will run from 6:30pmCT to 8:30pmCT, June 20, 2017, at the Barren County Extension Office, 1463 West Main St., Glasgow, KY.

"This is a pilot program we are looking to test for small game hunting and if successful could expand to other game animals in the future," Robinson said. "We are looking for a program to give landowners compensation for allowing hunting access."

The Conservation Reserve and Enhancement Program pays an annual rent to landowners for keeping environmentally sensitive areas out of production and implementing conservation practices on these lands.

"The Conservation Reserve and Enhancement Program has been one of our most successful quail restoration areas in Kentucky," Robinson said. "More than 100,000 acres are currently enrolled in the program."

The Conservation Reserve and Enhancement Program includes Adair, Allen, Barren, Butler, Edmonson, Grayson, Green, Hart, Logan, Metcalfe, Russell, Simpson, Taylor and Warren counties in south central Kentucky.
