About Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources

The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources is an agency of the Kentucky Tourism, Arts & Heritage Cabinet. Our nine-member commission is nominated by Kentucky sportsmen and sportswomen and appointed by the governor. This commission appoints the department’s commissioner. We employ about 500 people full-time, including conservation officers, wildlife and fisheries biologists, conservation educators, and information technology, public relations, customer service and administrative professionals. Our headquarters is located in Frankfort, but we work with landowners, hunters, anglers, boaters and wildlife enthusiasts statewide. We conserve and enhance fish and wildlife resources and provide opportunity for hunting, fishing, trapping, boating and other wildlife-related activities. Every year, we: • Enforce hunting, fishing and boating laws across Kentucky for resource protection and public safety. • Manage over half a million acres of public land and water for the benefit of all fish and wildlife species. • Stock more than 4 million fish in public waters. • Build and maintain public boat ramps, shooting ranges and bank fishing access areas, and acquire new public land and maintain facilities (capital construction). • Assist about 2,000 private landowners with fish and wildlife habitat improvement. • Inform and educate more than 400,000 kids and adults through education and outreach programs.
