I just finished up planting 200 trees I ordered last fall from the State. When I placed the order I requested delivery in March. Well March came and went without a delivery. A few phone calls later they showed up on April 9th.
Yesterday afternoon, we walked by a hollow log that I pushed up with my tractor a couple of years ago. I instantly heard noises when I walked by the opening. Shined a flashlight up inside and found these little rascals and their mother. Ended up being 4 young.
They are keeping Daddy busy in the turkey woods,,, But I wouldn't have it any other way. I love this stuff!
If I get on your nerves with the wild plants let me know. I wanted to share a comparison of two of my favorites. I wish this time of year lasted longer!

Just pulled trail camera cards and had this pic, big house cat?

I’ve seen them in a tree before but not that high. Looked out window and saw him. Guess dog ran him up.
Do you have this plant where you roam? I have heard that it can be "uncommon" but where I am ( extreme southern Indiana ) it is very common.

I also wanted to throw out there that this seems to be a very nice group of folks we have here at Kentucky Hunting. It's a nice place to hang out and I thank y'all for that.

Not every place online is like this.

I’m sick an tired of it!!! I have a hunting lease and every year they shoot the signs. I just recently put up new signs last week and they have already tore them down! What’s a man to do? This is happening every year.
My sons first bird. He killed it using his Mossberg .410 with 3” Federal Premium TSS #9’s. The bird was 37 yards when he shot it.
Finally on the board. We pushed it to the last evening of the youth weekend and finally got a bird that was willing to play the game.
The haybale blind does it again and my daughter just filled her last tag. YeeeeeeHawwwwww.
If they put a dollar bounty on every python killed in FL, there wouldn't be any left. They'd rather funnel millions of dollars to their chemical and drug pals for their ineffective 'birth control' instead.


This is the biggest female python ever captured in the Everglades' Big Cypress, researchers say

By Howard Cohen, The Miami Herald

[​IMG]© Provided by Local News RSS EN-US A team of four researchers stood apart from one another, arms outstretched, clutching a giant python, and it takes a wide-angle lens just to capture the length of the beast they found in Big Cypress National Preserve in Florida’s Everglades.

The group posted the image to the Big Cypress Facebook page Friday and are calling the catch a record.

The female python was over 17 feet long, weighed 140 pounds, and contained 73 developing eggs. That would make her longer, end-to-end, than a one-story building or a five-meter diving platform.

“She is the largest python ever removed from Big Cypress National Preserve — and she was caught because of research and a new approach to finding pythons,” the...
So the kids found a rabbit nest in the yard. I strapped a bushnell trailcam to a tobacco stick in hopes of getting a few videos. It worked out pretty good!

I like this guy’s channel. He goes into farm store permethrin spray doseages in detail here and discusses petroleum and water based products.

This Is The Army's New Submachine Gun

The American subsidiary of Swiss gunmaker B&T has won a multi-million-dollar contract to supply the U.S. Army with a variant of its 9mm APC9 submachine gun. For almost a year, the service has been evaluating a number of proposed weapons as part of an effort to give personal security details added firepower.

The Army quietly announced that it had awarded B&T USA the deal, worth more than $2.5 million, on the U.S. government’s main contracting website FedBizOpps on Mar. 29, 2019, but did not specify which weapon specifically it was buying. A trusted source familiar with the contract confirmed the gun in question was a version of the APC9 PRO series, but could not say which model specifically. The Army now expects to purchase at least 350 of what it officially calls the Sub Compact Weapon, or SCW, with additional options to buy up to 1,000 of the guns in total. The order also includes unspecified accessories, spare parts, and services.

The Army initially kicked off the SCW competition in May 2018, before canceling the project and quickly rebooting it in a revised form two months later. Along with B&T USA, its Swiss-headquartered parent company had also entered the SCW competition itself...
Had a great morning hunting at the NWTF Wheelin' Sportsman Hunt in Greene Co on Sat. Patrick Paysinger and the Volunteer Longbeard Chapter are an outstanding group of Sportsman.
The latest addition to my snake collection. Found this one on arms list a few days ago, was all scratched up and looked like it had never been cleaned since 1992. I found the
Grips on Ebay. I spent the better part of 4 days polishing with 5000 grit and Mothers Mag polish.
I put us together a haybale blind for youth season and it turned out good. Hopefully bust us a limbhanger out of it saturday morning.
Mom once helped two adults start campfire. They had been holding matches to the ends of full sized logs in their attempt! I determined to give my kids a better start. What do y'all teach your kids in the woods?

Supreme Court says man can use his hovercraft to hunt moose

ANCHORAGE, Alaska — The National Park Service improperly banned an Alaska moose hunter from using a hovercraft on a river through a national preserve, the US Supreme Court ruled Tuesday in a unanimous decision.

The court limited the National Park Service’s authority to enforce laws and regulations on state-owned rivers in Alaska. Justices rejected the agency’s argument that the river was “public land” for regulatory authority and that the agency’s water rights interest gave it rule-making authority.

The outcome was a victory for moose hunter John Sturgeon of Anchorage, who had sued and lost in lower court rulings.

“We reverse the decision below and wish Sturgeon good hunting,” Justice Elena Kagan said in reading a summary of the decision.

Sturgeon called it “a huge win for Alaska.”

“What it basically said is that the federal government doesn’t get the manage in-holdings including navigable waters in any of the conservation units in Alaska and that’s huge,” he told The Associated Press.

Justices cited the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act that in 1980 set aside 162,500 square miles of land for preservation purposes. The law created 10 new national parks, preserves and monuments but said agency rules would not apply on state or private land within the conservation units that are not federally owned.

Sturgeon for 40 years hunted moose along the Nation River, a waterway within the Yukon-Charley Rivers National Preserve in northeast Alaska. In 2007, he was using a...

Got my first deer this past fall, and got the mount back a couple weeks ago. Notre Dame Fighting Irish Football fan, so got the mount dipped in Fighting Irish colors.
We got the blind up in a spot we've killed numerous turkey over the years. It's on a flat under the ridge that runs out onto a big clean point; it's a natural strutting place I guess.
Missed out years ago on a Stevens 555 O/U 410 gauge at a K-Mart where the wife was HR manager.
I have to admit it's my one vice, I like coffee, there I said it..
Do you think a .22 would be enough to drop a, let's say, pitbull sized animal? Asking for a friend.
Does anyone know what the current laws are in Ky to be able to raffle of a shotgun , as far as the exchange to the winner ?
So I recently learned that GroundHogs are considered a year long game species here in Kentucky. That being said, I have determined that before I move I’d like to get one and eat it.
Mason wanted to go to the barn after school this evening and do some pest control. He was successful. And believe it or not...he likes eatin the dang things.
Well long story short it took me and my wife 19 years but we finally were able to achieve a dream. We bought a small 40acre farm (guess I should say land) up here in nky. Right now it will be used for hunting/recreational but plan on building in 3 years. I am going to put a barn on it this summer and was wanting to get some info on pole barns
Wanted to start a thread on dry land fish this year. I dont think it will be to much longer before we start finding some. Wish we had a little more snow this winter but im over it and ready for spring. Facebook reminded me this morning that i found 84 on this day in 2017. Was march 23 last year when i found the first mess. I plan on going and looking toward the end of next week after some of this milder weather comes through this week and weekend.
If anyone finds any this spring please share pics!

Girls lost in forest for 44 hours used survival skills learned from parents

Their rescue was described as a "miracle," but two girls who were lost in the Northern California forest over the weekend said Monday that they depended on each other to survive and had faith that their daddy was coming to save them.
Leia Carrico, 8, and her 5-year-old sister, Caroline, spoke publicly for the first time, described how they got lost while walking on a deer trail and wandered past a fallen tree on their family's 80-acre property that their father, Travis Carrico, warned them never to go beyond.

"Leia wanted a little, tiny more adventure. But I wanted more," Caroline said of how their misadventure Friday afternoon started.

The girls were found on Sunday afternoon by two volunteer firefighters about 1.4 miles from their home in the rural Humboldt County town of Benbow. Travis Carrico estimated the girls had probably walked six miles before they were found.

Leia said that at one point, she and her sister realized they had walked in a giant circle because they noticed the same metal poles they had already passed.

"I wasn't sure which way home was but it turned out that home was way back south," Leia said.

Leia said she and her sister used Caroline's rain jacket as shelter, cuddling together under a huckleberry bush to keep out of the pouring rain and to try to keep warm as nighttime temperatures dropped to 38 degrees.

"My sister cried...

Has anyone found any ramps in Ky ? I cant say that I have actually saw any in Ky , But I have never looked for them .
Army’s new Rifle SDM-R
[​IMG] The fForumsollowing article is from Star & Stripes
Army Sgt. James Snow has carried an M-4 carbine and an M-110 sniper rifle as an infantryman on missions. With the M-4, he knew he was capable of hitting a target accurately up to only 300 meters. With a sniper rifle, he had less maneuverability and spent a lot of time breaking down and reassembling the larger weapon to carry.

Last month, Snow was given the opportunity to try out the Army’s new Squad Designated Marksman Rifle, or SDM-R. After just a couple days handling the new weapon, he said it felt like something that could fill the needs of both his previous weapons. It had more mobility and close combat capabilities like the M-4, but also better precision at a distance like the M-110.

“It’s easy to move around, and you can do a lot of things with it,” Snow said. “Absolutely, I would carry this around every day if I was deployed. Every day, you could carry it for every single situation.”

That was exactly the type of weapon that the Army looked to create for its combat arms squads — a weapon for one member of an infantry, armor, cavalry scout or combat engineer squad to carry and provide precision fire between 300 and 600 meters without losing the capability of hitting closer-range targets.

The need for such a rifle was identified in the 2015 Small Arms Capabilities-Based Assessment that stated “squads must have an organic, precision-fire capability to engage select personnel targets from zero to 600 meters.”
With two weeks of testing completed this month at Fort Bliss, Texas, the Army is in the final stages of deciding what...
