FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — This is no fish tale: Kentucky has set a record with April's sales of hunting and fishing licenses.

The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources says sales totaled more than $7 million, a record for the month.

Fish and Wildlife Budget Director Scott King says the mark broke the previous record by $140,000 and is $800,000 more than April's average.

The agency says it has been offering convenience and opportunity for customers. Among the projects are a mobile app that allows searching for nearby fishing holes with GPS-enabled smart phones and using smart phones to buy hunting permits, check deer or find season dates.

Fish and Wildlife's Internet site also offers information for outdoors enthusiasts, and the agency says it received 17 million hits last year.
