Kentucky environmental attorney Sanders says Kentucky Fish and Wildlife offers General Assembly its proposed 2009-10 migratory bird season dates.

The Kentucky Fish and Wildlife Commission proposed the 2009-2010 early migratory bird season dates at its quarterly meeting June 12.

The Kentucky Fish and Wildlife Commission recommends all hunting, fishing and boating regulations for approval by the General Assembly and approves all expenditures by the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. Note: all agency recommendations must be approved by legislators before they become law.  So far, the below dates are proposed, but not yet approved by the General Assembly.
