Predicting the Winter
It seems everyone has their own way to predict our winter weather. Find out more about some of these methods.
Here are some fun outdoor activities for this season!
Enjoy the Outdoors Safely
Kentucky law requires hunters to wear unbroken hunter orange clothing, visible from all sides on the head, back, and chest when hunting during a gun deer or elk season. However, even if you are not hunting but plan on being in the woods during hunting season, you are encouraged to wear hunter orange. Hunter orange clothing makes you more visible and ensures you are not mistaken for game. It also makes you visible in the background beyond someone else’s potential target.

We are often asked about how someone could tell if they were on or off refuge property. All refuge property is clearly marked on the outside boundary with yellow paint hash marks and blue goose boundary signs. Some landowners adjacent to the refuge may mark their boundary with blue paint hash marks and no trespassing signs. Trespassing on posted or unmarked private property is a violation of Kentucky State law.
