I don't want to post too much--if I get on your nerves please tell me--but I thought many of you ( particularly parents) would enjoy this short one.
So I decided to test the "Plantnet" identification App for phones. The idea is you take a picture of a flower, leaf, or stem and it brings up what is hopefully the right plant from it's database.
I have had it ID some surprising stuff, and also strike out on some surprising stuff. I went out in the yard and the woods and gave it a whirl:
Went bear hunting and fishing in Ontario last week . Had a good time and my friend and I both got bears.
A brief look at Nodding Trillium, a fairly rare spring flower. ( at least around here)

Got my house up and painted. Need to put a rail on the stairs, and get the plexi-glass windows installed. Very pleased with the results[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

We headed out for Snapper fishing again and added to the freezer. Hit a storm out at sea that ate up some of out fishing time but still had a blast.

Had a visitor in he back yard this evening. He came last week and tore my feeder down.

Nominees sought for seat on Fish and Wildlife Commission
Posted: Jun 12, 2018 12:56 AM EDT Updated: Jun 12, 2018 12:56 AM EDT

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - A meeting is planned this month to choose nominees for a seat on the Kentucky Fish and Wildlife Commission.

A statement from the agency says the meeting to choose candidates for the Eight District representative will be held June 25 at the Morehead Conference Center.

Residents in the district who for the past two years have purchased a Kentucky hunting or fishing license or have hunted or fished in Kentucky, but were not required to purchase a license, may participate in the process.

The Eight District is made up of Bath, Bourbon, Boyd, Carter, Elliott, Fleming, Greenup, Lewis, Mason, Menifee, Montgomery, Morgan, Nicholas, Rowan and Wolfe counties.

The names of up to five nominees will be submitted to Gov. Matt Bevin, who will make the appointment.

The Pistola Con Caricato Revolver: Weird Gun Tuesday
[​IMG]

A break-action weapon, the Pistola con Caricato features three barrels, complimented by a very high capacity 18-shot cylinder, which is reloaded via two-piece moon clip-type loading devices. They sandwich the 18 rounds between a holding plate and a firing access plate, through which the firing pins strike the cartridges.

The weapon has five operational settings, and the selector allows the shooter to choose which firing pin and barrel would be used to fire the gun. It also has the option to fire from all three barrels at once with one pull of the trigger. It also features a mechanical safety that prevents the hammer from hitting any of the firing pins.

The Con Caricato had four firing settings and a safety controlled via selector switch on the left of the revolver’s frame. Each setting controlled one of the three barrels, the fourth setting reserved for those instances where a user would say “to hell with it” and fire all three barrels simultaneously. Enormous, two-piece moonclips facilitated faster reloads, assuming the user preferred keeping their revolver set to triple-fire.

Ammo
It uses the low-powered, semi-rimmed 6.35×16mm caliber round, which is traditional for light pocket guns.
The .25 ACP is a traditional favorite for pocket guns, and particularly for inexpensive “Saturday-night Specials,” since its pressures are low enough to pose little risk to even the weakest metal.
It’s considered the lowest-powered standard cartridge still in manufacture,...

Friend of mine gave me this little flat horn few years back for some deer I brought him..finally got around to putting some scrim on it. This side is done...going to be a map on other side.

My grandparents purchase some property on a little lake in Baghdad ky roughly 35 years ago with a very large family I have thousands of memories of us enjoying this wonderful place

Yeah this is probable supposed to go in the camping section but I wanted to get the most input as possible.
I've decided to get back into tent camping without roughing it.
What gear do you guys find is easy to buy online? Where do you shop to get the best deal?

I'm a big fan of BAM Outdoors, especially with their membership I can get gear WAY cheaper than other places!

I'm in Lexington and wondering if anyone knows a good place to do some bullfroging. I've done some in eastern ky but don' live there anymore.
Watch the video and then go to our website and get started to send your Pastor on a retreat.

Flipping thru channels a couple days ago I ran across a couple doing a Elk hunt out west. Gal is up first and has a mature 5x6 bull at 320 yards across a valley. Put a shot right behind the shoulder for a double lung hit and guide says hit him again. No need to as Elk started to stumble and go down. Before she could even rack in another round it was down for the count. What amaze me was she was shooting a 25-06 with a 110 grain bullet. Even at that range it still had enough going for it to take down a large animal such as that Elk. I know the 25-06 will jerk the rug out from under a normal size whitetail but never gave it thought on bigger game animals. 25 caliber is just not that big a hunk of lead to send downrange on a Large Bull Elk IMO. I guess the old saying Speed Kill's holds true in this case.

Ive been in a regular cab GMC 4wd for about 10.5 years now. It was a good truck .. not much room or bells & whistles. But it served the purpose of a dependable ride and got me through those years of also buying my daughter a vehicle, college... and finally getting her married off last year.
[​IMG]
Alright, so the little lady and my other two little ladies tried yaking and loved it. So, I'm on the hook to buy at least 3.
Again, skip the pricey crap.
Thanks.

its getting closer to that time and I enjoy seeing everyone’s progress on their fields and learning different ways to do it.
Saw this on da news. Anyone know the real deal on this. Looks like a big ole pet Tom cat to me.

Caught a few gills

On the one year anniversary of our 35lbs fish last Derby weekend we struck again. This year we caught this 40lb, 38inch beast on a noodle at rough river.
What's the earliest fawn y'all have seen? Found one Sunday in Cumberland county while cutting wood.

How many youuns have experienced this? I grew up scalding and scraping and cooking the liver on the fire on site. Good times!!
Spotted these guys just coming up. Things are behind this year; they were twice this size last year at the same time.

Laying in the road in front of my driveway. Kids enjoyed seeing him.
Anyone else been seeing Lightning bugs while out turkey hunting? My buddy hunted my place in Grayson County back around the 25th or 26th of April. He told me that he had seen lightning bugs on the ground and flying in the trees. I told him it was probably his meds and he was seeing stars from being light headed. Then I went down to my place really early yesterday and I will be danged if there weren't lightning bugs all over the woods well before light. Anyone else been seeing them? I never really paid much attention but don't recall ever having seen them before early summer.

Come out to support your public lands and get involved with a great organization.

See you there.
Anyone know of a reliable source of hunting leases? I have checked a few websites but they seem to be very limited in availability. Just wondering
Does a person have to have a Ky Hunting license to shoot on a Gun Range?
Steve Rinella and the rest of the meateater crew are doing a live podcast at several venues around the country including Columbus, Ohio on June 21st. The tickets are going fast if you are interested. The VIP tickets are already gone. Here is a link https://www.meateater.live/

If you are from NKY and want to carpool, let me know.
I notice in Kentucky a great deal of bowfishing is happening from county road bridges...Discharging a bow upon a public roadway is undoubtedly illegal, plus there are dead fish being left to rot on the bridge decks, and the bowfishermens cars are partially blocking the road....A total black eye for the tradition of bowfishing IMO, plus it's defacto hunting and or bowfishing on the lands of others without permission....What do you think?

23 lbs / 11” beard and 1” spurs. Being there beside him was one of the best moments in my 40+ years of hunting.

I stopped at a YUGE yard sale yesterday morning to look around. I managed to poke around the mountains of clothes, and dishes to find the tool section tucked back under a tree.

This morning me and dad was set up well before daylight. We heard more birds around us this morning than anywhere else this year and several gobbled almost all morning.
From what I have heard, it is illegal to pick mushrooms, ginseng etc in LBL...

This seems like a travesty! I could understand some sort of management plan and even a "hunting" lic requirement but a total ban is downright un American!

What are your thoughts?

A bunch of us are trying to put together a Kentucky chapter of the Backcountry Hunters & Anglers. Our first event will be a pint night in Lexington on May 21. Entry is free, drinks are on you. Hope you all can make it!
Killed a Gobbler this year 4 spurs two jake type and 2 long spurs is this pretty common?
I don't know what else to do but beg. I know one other guy and his only intrest is fishing and drinking. I've lived in South Lexington for 12 years. I have an intrest in it all I just dont drive or know anyone that wants to do something. I lived in eastern ky in the past and knew others but not anymore. I'm 37 have some mild epilepsy problems.
I hope all the hunting & fishing industry drops Yeti! Sportsman made them what they are today. I hope they can make it off the gun hating, vegetarian, liberals; most of em don't need nothing but a baggie to keep their "herbs" in.
