FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- An eastern Kentucky public hunting area owned by the Kentucky National Guard will be closed to public access on several dates while the guard uses the site for training.

Hidden Valley Training Site in Powell County opened Saturday under statewide regulations for archery and crossbow deer hunting and is also open for small game hunting under statewide seasons. It's closed to the public at the end of archery deer season, which is Jan. 20.

The 523-acre area will be closed to public access on Wednesday this week through Sunday and again Sept. 17 through 22, Oct. 9 through 13 and Oct. 16 through 20.

The site is located west of Stanton off Kentucky 15.
