FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- State fish and wildlife officials have scheduled a meeting in eastern Kentucky to discuss the deer population in the Redbird Wildlife Management Area.

The session set for 6 p.m. EST Wednesday will allow residents to comment on the issue. The meeting will be in the Tim Lee Carter Building in Hyden.

The Redbird Wildlife Management Area consists of 24,000 acres in the Daniel Boone National Forest in Clay and Leslie counties.

The Redbird area is managed by the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources.

Clay and Leslie counties are in an area with the most harvest-restricted statewide designation in Kentucky. This season, the department made the Redbird area a bow-only hunting area for deer, due to previous hunter concerns about low deer numbers.
