    Blue Diamond voucher area access.

    Does anybody know who I can call or maybe you know yourself what areas of Blue Diamond are open to voucher holders and how you can get access.

    Bows with 32" draw length

    Any bows the last few years that have come with a 32" draw length? My sons best friend is saddled with being 15 and 6'4. Great if he was a football player, not so great as an archer. He's outgrown his Diamond and I'm trying to help him find an affordable bow to shoot and hunt with.

    Scent smoker users?

    Has anybody or does anybody used the Scent Smoker system? It's just a bee smoker, you burn hickory chips in it and smoke yourself and your clothes and gear. I used to use cedar chips, then fox urine in the old days. Then I went scent killer, clothes, spray, ect which was more trouble than it...

    Water snaring

    I'd like to try to do some snaring for beaver and otter this year. I've trapped before but haven't done much snaring. I don't really care about numbers, a few pelts to tan and hang on the wall and the experience and I would be happy. What do you think I need to start with equipment wise? I'm...

    I have a friend who has been thinking about setting up a 3D range on his farm as added income. There is only one range about 30 miles away and so he should be able to draw from several counties. He's about 30 minutes from Lexington and has a great layout for both open and woods shots and a...
