    I grew up in Henderson...you should find them there. I used to see them. Not a lot, but occasionally you'd run up on one. Of course this was a billion years ago...LOL

    Anyone see on the news where one was pulled out of the engine bay of a young mans car here in Pulaski Co. this week? He called the state police and they pulled it out and let it go. Right here in the parking lot of a business somewhere. Can't wait to see one myself somewhere around here.

    I just returned from a week long muzzle loading hunt in Arkansas. We're usually stampeded with them there (maybe a little exaggeration there) but for some reason this time, we saw very few. Some years we see a lot more than others.......

    Bracken County??? Really??? A guy I work with swears up and down he saw one on his farm in Bracken and I kept telling him he needs to start cutting back on his drinking. I guess maybe he was right.
    I've seen a few dead ones along the road in extreme western KY but never imagined they had made it this far north and east. I'm still a little skeptical.

    Hate to tell ya, but we've got Scorpions in western KY too. Now that ought to GET you drinking. (Don't think they're poison tho)

    my boys found one on a friends ranch in Texas a couple of years ago. they both had their 7mm-08's locked and loaded and counting down from 10 when i called a cease fire at 2. they were about to blow it to dillo heaven. that would have been the end of their deer hunting that evening.

    I've seen two in KY. The first was at LBL in 2010, it was right beside the road and we got pictures of it. The second was last year in Warren County, on Old Greenhill Road.

    Found a dead one on the north end of LBL in November of 2015. Only one I've ever seen.

    Kill every one you see. You DO NOT want them around here. Trust me

    I grew up in Henderson, too...running around the woods and bottoms of Baskett...but, have never seen one there. I'm sure they exist somewhere in the county, though. Did you see them around Smith Mills?

    They don't hurt anything. Had tons of them around in New Mexico. Never caused a problem.
