FUNCTION, AND CONFORMITY: It is necessary to regulate the season, time, bag

limit, and manner of taking for bullfrogs in order to utilize and conserve the

time and to bring Section 3 of this administrative regulation in compliance

with the gigging season.

open season on bullfrogs shall begin at 12 noon on the 3rd Friday in May and

continue until 12 midnight October 31. The daily creel limit shall be fifteen

or more days frogging. Each day for taking bullfrogs shall begin at 12 noon and

end at 12 noon the following day. No person may have more than fifteen (15)

bullfrogs in his possession while in the field.


      Section 2.

Bullfrogs may be taken with gig, by hand, bow and arrow, firearm or hook and

line from public and private waters, and an appropriate license is required. If

bullfrogs are taken with firearm or bow and arrow, a hunting license is

required. If bullfrogs are taken by use of a pole and line, a fishing license

is required. If bullfrogs are taken with hand or by use of a gig, then either a

fishing license or a hunting license is valid.


      Section 3.

Except as provided in Section 3 of 301 KAR 1:075, it shall be illegal to
