    Hi there my name is Oscar, I'm a service member who recently moved here. I am looking to get into hunting and would like some advice on where to start or if possible for someone to show me the ropes. I've been a salt water fisherman for over 10 years and now shifting to hu to g since there's no salt water out here and I'm and avid outdoorsman. Any advice, suggestions, secrets what ever it may be it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you all in advance for the support in this matter.

    Kentucky's wildlife management areas are a great place to start. Lots of good places to bow and squirrel hunt. Modern firearms not so much. Almost all the land in the state is in private hands so, either the land owner uses it to hunt or it's leased. Modern gun hunts for deer are mostly by draw on the WMAs and, you have to get your name on the list early.
    Kentucky has some really good fishing at various lakes, streams, and rivers. But, I can't help you there as I grew up mainly fishing farm ponds.
    Kentucky's fish and wildlife websites have maps of all the WMAs with the corresponding rules etc.
