Otter Hunting?

Hunting season is approaching and to those that enjoy the sport, this isn't anything new. While deer and turkey hunting is the norm, hunters may be surprised by the number of less obvious animals harvested in the county.

According to the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife, 1,193 deer killed in the county last year. The spokesman for the department couldn't provide exact numbers for the harvest of other animals, however, the maps do give a range.

Between 21 and 30 bobcats were killed and between one and 10 river otters were killed. It's my guess that number for the otters would be closer to one than 10.
