Click here for a "How-to" guide for the Fort Knox Quota Gun Deer Hunt.

 

*Reminder!  18-19 November and 25-26 November are mandatory deer check days.  The check station is located at the Hunt Control Office, Building 9297, 4916 Wilson Road.  The Mount Eden Check Station will not be operated this year.

New for 2017!  You must use the KDFWR's Telecheck System to check-in your Fort Knox deer and turkey.  Select either Hardin, Meade, or Bullitt County (not a problem if not sure, just select Hardin), then public land, then Fort Knox Military Reservation.  Harvest must also be reported in iSportsman when checking out of your Hunting Area.

The Mount Eden and Highway 251 gates WILL NOT be open this year during the Quota Gun Deer Hunt and ALL access to and from the Hunting Areas inside the Access Control Points will be through the Chaffee Gate ONLY.

 

ATTENTION DEER HUNTERS:

IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT HUNTERS CHECK OUT OF THEIR AREA BY THE TIME REQUIRED.  14 DAYS SUSPENSION FOR FIRST OFFENSE AND 30 DAYS FOR SECOND WILL BE ENFORCED AND IS NOT APPEALABLE. 

 

Deer Hunting Checkout Times by Date

RETRIEVING AN ANIMAL AFTER THE REQUIRED CHECKOUT TIME IS PERMITTED BY FOLLOWING THE BELOW PROCEDURE.  THIS WILL ALLOW 2 ADDITIONAL HOURS PAST HUNTING CHECK OUT TIME.  ABSOLUTELY NO EXCEPTIONS TO CHECKOUT BY THE INDICATED CHECK OUT TIME.

PLEASE REMEMBER:  IT IS ALWAYS BEST TO "BACK OUT IF THERE IS ANY DOUBT" ABOUT SHOT PLACEMENT AND COME BACK THE NEXT DAY TO TRACK AN ANIMAL.  THERE IS A MUCH GREATER CHANCE OF RECOVERING A WOUNDED ANIMAL IF YOU FOLLOW THIS RULE.

1.  LOG INTO YOUR ISPORTSMAN ACCOUNT AND CLICK "ACQUIRE PERMITS".

2.  FIND THE "RETRIEVING BIG GAME AFTER HOURS PERMIT"(FREE). AND CLICK ADD TO CART, SELECT SAVE, THEN CHECK OUT AND CONFIRM. 

3.  THE PERMIT SHOULD THEN BE VISIBLE IN YOUR LIST OF PERMITS AT THE BOTTOM OF YOUR START PAGE.  IT IS VALID FOR 1 DAY AND YOU CAN ONLY ACQUIRE 4 DURING THE SEASON.  PLEASE USE THEM ONLY AS ABSOLUTELY REQUIRED. 

4.  CHECK OUT OF YOUR DEER HUNTING AREA AS NORMAL. 

5.  LOG OUT AND LOG BACK INTO ACCOUNT, SELECT CHECKIN/CHECKOUT THEN CHECKIN.  YOU WILL NOW BE PERMITTED TO SEE THE "RETRIEVING DEER AFTER CHECKOUT TIME" TAB, SELECT IT AND THEN SELECT YOUR AREA FROM THE LIST AND CONFIRM.

NOTE:  YOU CAN ONLY CHECK INTO THIS ACTIVITY FROM 44 MINUTES PRIOR TO SUNSET UNTIL 2 HOURS AFTER SUNSET PREVAILING TIME.

5.  PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO THE INDICATED CHECK OUT TIME.  YOU MUST ABSOLUTELY BE CHECKED OUT AND PHYSICALLY OUT OF THE AREA BY THAT TIME, NO EXCEPTIONS.  REPORT HARVEST IF THE ANIMAL IS RECOVERED AT CHECKOUT AS NORMAL.  ENSURE THAT YOU CONFIRM CHECK OUT OR HARVEST AND CHECK OUT WILL NOT BE ACCOMPLISHED.

6.  IF FOR SOME REASON THE ANIMAL CANNOT BE RECOVERD BY THE CHECK OUT TIME AND THE AREA IS CLOSED THE FOLLOWING DAY, OR IT IS TUESDAY, PLEASE COME TO THE HUNT CONTROL AFTER 0700 WEEKDAYS (COME TO THE ENTRY DOOR SOUTH OF THE HUNT CONTROL ENTRANCE), 1030 WEEKENDS, TO DETERMINE IF THE AREA CAN BE ACCESSED TO CONTINUE THE EFFORT TO RETRIEVE THE ANIMAL.  IT MAY NOT BE POSSIBLE DUE TO MILITARY TRAINING.
