Of the top 15 counties, 8 were in the Bluegrass Region. The harvest was led by Owen County, where hunters killed 1,720 bucks and 2,094 does. Statewide, 116,540 deer were reported via mandatory telephone check-in, with the number adjusted to about 150,000 to account for reporting noncompliance. Does in the mountainous Zone 4 portion of the state are protected from either-sex hunting. This year it's bucks-only during the modern gun and early muzzleloading seasons.
