    Approx. 550 acres just outside of Clay City that doubles as a National Guard Training area and WMA. Does anyone here have any experience or information on this WMA that they aren't afraid to share? I figure it cant hurt to ask..

    The locals "wore it out!!" when it was just a training site. They tore down gates drove through fields Burt and destroyed buildings and equipment. You couldn't pay me to hunt there probably couldn't find a squirrel or bird for that matter.

    I was beginning to think it really was a "Hidden" valley.

    Hidden Valley Training Center, a 551-acre public hunting area in northeast Powell County, will be closed for 15 days this fall.

    "The area is periodically used by the Kentucky National Guard for training," said Becky Littleton, a public lands biologist for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. "The dates it will be closed to the public are Sept. 8-18 and Oct. 11-14."

    The Hidden Valley Training Area is located west of Stanton off KY 15. The area is owned by the Kentucky National Guard and is open to regulated hunting through an agreement with Kentucky Fish and Wildlife. It is 60 percent forested and bordered on the west by Lulbegrud Creek.

    Under the agreement, public hunting begins each year on Sept. 1. The area is open under statewide regulations for archery and crossbow deer hunting, and small game hunting. The area closes with archery deer season, which is Jan. 21, 2013.

    Hidden Valley Training Center is closed to all firearms hunting for deer and is closed to wild turkey hunting during all seasons. Camping, horseback riding and ATVs are prohibited.

    For more information, visit the department's website at: fw.ky.gov. Click on Maps and Online Services, then Public Hunting Areas to get directions to the area and view a map.
