WTVF, channel 5, out of Nashville had an excellent piece on all the recent cougar sightings in the state. the TWRA acknowledged that cougars were in middle Tennessee, along with west Tennessee as well. There have been numerous sightings, both on trail cam and people seeing them. I have some friends in one of the counties cougars have been spotted in, and they told me that the game warden more or less told them that they think a breeding population has been established.
Hi - New to the Forum. Looking for any personal feedback on a reputable outfitter in Western Kentucky? My son is a senior this year and would like to take him on a deer hunt. He plays hockey so he has not been able to hunt in WI very much due to his schedule. Due to his hockey, I am looking at the early muzzleloader season. Any input on outfitters as well as if the early muzzleloader can be productive would be much appreciated.
I'm hoping were just a bit over a month out before the first blacks start showing up. Several getting the morel fever on social media I noticed. Last year was close to a bust. I'm shooting for 2,000 this spring and think I can get there if it's a decent year. My wife has already signed off for me to go a lot under the heading of cardiac rehab. Lol

Found 2-3 new spots while hunting I can hardly wait to get into and see if there are any there.
While doing some scouting on Saturday I pulled a complete set of keys out of the mudd. On the bass pro shop awards tag it had the name Aaron Cook. It also had a 2012 emblem on it with several ford and other keys on it. I know I can drop it off at kroger and they will send it to the owner(there was also a kroger card on it) but I would like to contact the person myself to get a story on where they lost them. I was in Taylorsville at the WMA.
Over the past year. Still into it with a group of horse people (about 25 of them) here in Muhlenberg wanting fish and wildlife to hand over several thousand acres of Peabody WMA for them to ride on year round anyplace at any time with not just horses but also ATV's and UTV's now. I would just like to have some numbers to throw out there as to how much money the sportsmen put into Peabody in the permit fee each year. As a lot of other groups they want things but on OPM (other peoples money) and not willing to stick their necks out to aquire the amount of money it would take to buy or lease the number of acres they feel they need. I gave them a heads up on a Lake Malone state park contact that was willing to work with them towards horse trails but that would require them to help maintain trails and do other upkeep but they are like talking to a brick wall when all they can see is the amount of land F&W has.
Hey guys. New to this forum and I have never hunted in KY but I am thinking about hunting Peabody next year. Any info would be great! Deer numbers high? Potential big bucks? Thanks again for any info.
Is there any place to get printed maps or are they only available online? My new printer isn't working yet. Thanks.
If one of those three is being a nuisance, can you kill them? I know coons have a season.
Cleaned and ready to be put up until next season.
Going to go to Elk Creek for the first time to shoot sporting clays. I shoot a 20 gauge over/under. I would like to hear from those of you who have shot there before, what choke configurations do you suggest? What is the average shot distance? Thanks
wheres the correct fourm room for looking for land leases etc ? Thanks in advance
Here you go coyote hunters.
Anybody using led lights for work/ reloading bench?
Would like to swap out 4-4 foot flourescent lights for LEDs
How do they compare ( lighting lumens, cost etc)?
Thanks for all input

We've had a lot of great threads.... what is your favorite memory, how old, etc.... But, just for fun, what is your favorite time frame hunting memory? Like, when you were a young lad, early teen, etc? For me, I think my favorite time was while in college. After one year of playing basketball in Juco, I transferred to WKU. For the next 4 years while in school, I deer hunted my arse off. Dad was still young, my uncle still hunted with us, as well as some of my favorite deer hunting buddies. We didn't kill any monsters, didn't really kill many bucks, but 82-86 were probably the most enjoyable years of deer hunting of my life.
on saturday january 2 i lost my best friend my hunting buddy the rock of my life my daddy he loved life to the fullest
loved to hunt fish and any thing outdoors he will be greatly missed every day love you daddy
I usually start looking for sheds the beginning of February for deer but have heard a lot of people talking about seeing deer that have already dropped.
I usually start looking the beginning of March for elk sheds. I guess it's getting time to break out the walking shoes.

Feb 6-14. if you haven't been, it's a pretty cool place to spend a day or two. everything and anything for hunting fishing. an entire wing of guns since the NRA took over. weekends are nuts, less crowded on weekdays.
Special thanks to loshbough hunting lodge for the awesome hunt, we had a blast
Seen this while hunting. There was several of them in a 10 foot area. They are hollow and are about 3 inches high.



Hi ladies and gents. I am an military recruiter moving to Rowan County in the next few months and was looking for some info on the hunting in the Rowan County area. I am looking forward of getting out of the swamps of the okefenokee seamp and into the hills of eastern Kentucky. Any info will be greatly appreciated.
Is there anyone from around the Big South Fork area that can give me more information about hog hunting? Looking at going there in January or February, the park service fave me some info but I want to be as prepared as possible and hopefully we can have a successful hunt.
I wanted to share the second part of my Dad & I's hunt this fall. I hope everyone enjoys it! There will be a third part but I will try and get it finished quicker than this one.

Seams like we have to replace our sealer every few years was wondering what everyone is using and how long they are lasting? We usually process 3-4 deer a year not at one time and rarely use it for anything else.

In in the past foodsaver brand has been the one we used. Reading reviews I found the foodsaver gamesaver is more for high volume packaging and maybe that is what is causing our issue.

Look at that form LOL.

I am trying to organize a hunting/storage/workbench type room and trying to get ideas on how to organize it. It's a small basement room with some windows. So far I have a 50 gun safe and a tower organizer with some rubbermaid tubs with mostly clothes and small items in there. I have two other walls to work with. I am thinking of a work table and possibly some drawers. Maybe a bow press in the future and a gun vise? Anyone have any other ideas or possibly things to consider? Pics would also be helpful. Thanks
Did ya'll see this Watching this with tears in my eyes.... The bond between a father and son.... Man oh man. There is nothing I wouldn't do for my dad.
He got his the opening day of rifle season and I killed mine with bow 6 days later. We've gated off the property 2 years ago and I killed a 162" 16 ptr last year then this year we killed these bucks. I've also put out some food plots this year as well. [​IMG][​IMG]

Bought a cargo carrier for my Jeep so I wouldnt have to pull my trailer and ATV to my hunting spot.I have a question for people with a carrier,I can lift up on the end of the carrier and there is 2 inches of play,not tight at all.Do I need to make some braces for the carrier so it will not have free play.If so,tell me what you do to your carrier!
Since I have another two weeks for crow to open I am going to give late dove season a go this weekend. I have never attempted it though. Anyone have any words of advise on how to approach it this time of year?

Killed this young coyote this morning,killed a black one a couple weeks ago,place is crawling with coyotes,heard several yiping and barking this morning!!

I figure with it being so warm there will likely be a lot killed again today.
After realizing Casey County does not currently have a Conservation Officer, I got to digging.

There are 103 COs in the state with 13 counties having 2 COs. That leaves 30 counties without a CO. In addition to this, some are Captains or Lieutenants which have added duties that take away from actual patrol and investigation time. Also, nowadays Cos are also being utilized for things such as domestic violence calls, drug busts, traffic stops, etc. The Kentucky COs are way understaffed!
And the bad thing is, according to the Dept?s website, they have no plans to fix this. If you go to ?Career in Law Enforcement? page, you will find (in bold, red letters) ?There are no vacancies at this time?.
Also, Dept. employees have not received a raise for approximately 12 years. I wouldn?t even mention this if it wasn?t for the fact that at the last Commission meeting, the District Commissioners voted to accept Commissioner Gregory Johnson?s contract. That contract included a 5% raise for an individual making a six figure salary, who has been with the Dept. for approximately 1.5 years. For the record, only one District commissioner voiced opposition to the 5% raise included in Commissioner Johnson?s contract. He also called on Commissioner Johnson not to accept the 5% raise. Commissioner Johnsonwas silent on the issue.
I just got done with this.This is one of them I killed opening day of gun season.A little different from a deer,more grissel and the meat little tougher.But I like how it turned out.[​IMG][​IMG]

[FONT=&quot]Here is a picture of the new world record whitetail
buck. It was taken by the cousin of a co-worker's
sister's uncle's best friend's son-in-law's neice's
hairdresser's neighbor's ex-boyfriend's oldest nephew.

Reportedly it will score 2603-1/8 by Boone & Crockett standard
and was shot in West Texas on a really windy day at
a temp of 85 degrees, downhill, around a curve at just
over 1000 yards with a .22 caliber rifle, that was salvaged
from a shipment on its way to Mexico.

Supposedly, this deer had killed a Brahma bull, two Land
Rovers, and six Jehovah's Witnesses in the last two weeks
alone. They said it was winning a fight with Bigfoot when
it was shot. It has also been confirmed that the buck had
been seen drinking discharge water from a nuclear power

All this has been checked and confirmed by my friends at

How much per acre would you pay to purchase (not lease) a hunting property? What in your opinion is a good price per acre for land? Keep in mind the land is raw and not really quality land for farming or anything.
In a little over 14 hours the orange army will be launching their offensive operations against a very well rounded target.

The target knows their terrain better than the orange army and will do everything possible to avoid confrontation with one of it's soldiers.

But they do not realize that the orange army has archer's, that can silence the enemy without much more than "thwack".

The enemy will not know what is coming at first light, but they will soon learn that no where is safe for them.

Now for the serious part; I wish everyone good luck this weekend. Regardless of whether you're only a rifle hunter, die hard bow hunter, or someone with an exemption to use a crossbow.

We are all in this together, we must band together to take out the enemy mentioned above and to also protect our right to hunt.

Be safe, shoot straight, be sure of the target, and stay on your side of the property lines.
So I bought 21 acres last February and I have been working on shooting lanes and good blind spots all year(it's pretty thick). My buddy just recently bought the 7 acres next to mine about 2 months ago.

We go into his 7 acres about two weeks ago to start cutting away brush and get a blind set up for this upcoming gun season. Well wouldn't ya know someone else had already set up a blind, 5 trail cams, a ladder stand and 2 deer feeders on his property.

So here here we are two weeks from opening day and we have all this stuff on his property. What do we do? Well we went back over and clearly marked the property lines and then hung notes on a lot of the gear asking him to remove this stuff before opening day and that we were gonna hunt here.

I just got back from the property and ALL the gear is still up. So three days before gun season and I don't know what to do. Should I take all the gear down and place it on the other side of the property where we think they are coming from? Do I just leave it and hunt out of it?

i know this was a long post but I just wanted to get some opinions. HOPEFULLY the guys that set this stuff up are on this forum and will see this post and we can work this out without it getting ugly.
Got a new grinder and slicer and it says to lubricate them,would it be okay to use a vegtable spray or something like Pam.Thanks
