Kentucky Grouse Hunters Association

​ The Kentucky Grouse Hunters Association was formed for educational and habitat purposes. At that time  there were two important issues that small game hunters (grouse, quail and rabbit) were concerned about,  those were the closing of small game season on December 31 and the trapping of grouse in Eastern  Kentucky. The KGHA worked with KDFWLR on both of these issues, which left our season as they are  today and the trapping program has cease. During the AGRP the KGHA worked directly with the biologist  over the Kentucky study area to gain knowledge of grouse, their diets, age structure and cover preference. 
 KGHA has worked for small game habitat, particularly grouse, be improved on our public lands in the  grouse zone of Kentucky, along with the purchase of additional land be bought for public use. KGHA works  closely with the LKS (HILAF) and KHLT to add public lands in which to hunt and fish across Kentucky.  We’ve worked with the LKS and DBNF to improve habitat for upland game species and will continue our  work with both organizations.
 Habitat on our public lands have improved, six of our Eastern Kentucky WMA’s currently have  improvement projects in progress. Work is being done on the DBNF to improve upland game species at the  time. KGHA has supported quail habitat across the state and will continue to work for upland game  improvements along with other small game species.
