The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources invites you to to apply for quota waterfowl hunts at Boatwright Wildlife Management Area for the 2023-24 waterfowl season. A portion of the total hunting locations will be randomly allocated via this online process. Remaining spots will be allocated in a drawing at the check station the morning of the hunt.

The application period is the week before you want to hunt. Applications are accepted Wednesday through Sunday (Eastern Time). Random drawings for hunts and locations will then occur the following Monday.

Application Rules:
  • You must have the necessary license and permit needed for waterfowl hunting when you apply.
  • You must be at least 18 years old.
  • You cannot apply if you were cited for waterfowl hunting violations on a waterfowl quota hunt the previous season.
