    I did a bunch of hustling this last week to get my shotgun registered in Fort Knox so that my son could participate in this weekends youth gun hunt. So I’m heading up there tomorrow from Fort Campbell to scout out a couple areas.
    Being a new soldier to the area, Question for the experienced:
    What area would y’all recommend for us to go in blind and hunt? I appreciate it and wish y’all the best of luck this season.

    If you have created an Isportsman account, the open areas are listed under the Hunting Area Forecast for Saturday and Sunday. The upper 80s are good and anything bordering the area of 114 (Cedar Creek) is decent. Pretty hilly back in there though. Look for any bench on the side of a hill with white oaks and sit for a spell.

    I have not hunted on Knox since they changed the gun registration to in person...I simply live too far away and have too little time to fool with that non-sense...I love hunting Knox and was quite willing to mail in my registration but there is a limit...

    I would be happy to discuss the different areas I have hunted...some changes are always occurring but I did have some favorite spots...

    Its been a sloooowwww morning. Hunted an area that has not been open for anything all year. Never even seen a track. Acorns everywhere. No deer sign anywhere. Re-located to a different area for the afternoon sit. Good luck to all!

    My youngest son killed a doe Saturday evening. Shot her at 5:57pm. First deer we'd seen all day. Went back for an evening sit on Sunday with my other son and we blanked. Heard it was slow all weekend and heard very little shooting (that wasn't training related :)

    Very appreciative of the folks that make this hunt happen. Hunt Control, area guides, game wardens......they all work hard to make it an enjoyable hunt. Grateful for the opportunity.

    Congrats to you all. Sadly, gratitude seems to be undervalued these days but obviously not by you.
