I hunted public lands unsuccessfully in Southern California (deer are sparse) before managing to escape to Kentucky, and I'm getting ready for my first hunt out here. I found some public lands nearby (veterans memorial WMA), and plan on getting some scouting trips in before modern gun season starts up. Still very new to hunting, and have done enough (probably too much) research to know the mechanics, but I know I just need to get out there! I haven't really had anyone who hunted to help ease me into it. I'm a shooter, firearms instructor, and CCDW instructor in Ky. Any tips or warnings would be much appreciated! Thanks!
