    Start with the KY game and fish webpage. I would also get in contact with my local DU chapter. The Chapter chair and members should be more than willing to help out a guy in need. Just ignore all these senseless post, most of these guys are just mean.

    Nice. I told him where to go. I hunt there 80% of the time. It's like anything else. You have to put in the time. BM posted up the info from KDFW so do the work and enjoy. Also this place has a bad reputation so it's best to stay away.

    You know I think this is a set up. What are the chances that 2 of them show up at the same time. It's like the 2 people that showed up last year just to stir things up. Wait one of them did sort of hunt fowl. Anyway just a thought. Carry on.

    My buddy from back home has been trying to help me out up here to find some public sloughs. I totally get it and I hated out of towners with the best of them. I found public land so now I guess I just need to start walking hahaha. Thanks

    I couldn't agree more. I remember when this type of behavior was dealt with.

    Black facepaint is a must for killing woodies, here in KY.

    You're welcome.

    Expect to drive. Woodies can be found on local WMA's some years, but the 2 bird limit is not worth the hike. Rivers or private are best options around this area.

    Not here anymore
    Glad to share my spots. Got 3 that are awesome, but do require exquisite timing to hunt. The first is on Nicholasville Rd, in front of the Equine/Vet Sci building just before Farm Rd. Small pond but always has birds. Best camo here is shorts/hoodie/backpack - and use a pellet rifle.

    Second spot is north of Lexington. Turn into the KY Horse Park, and turn right at the T. Small lake/big pond that always holds geese and in late winter has quite a few divers. Dress in breeches, knee boots, and a polo and just act like you own the place - you will blend right in with the horse people.

    Third spot is the best of all. There is a pond in front of the Papa Johns Corporate Bldg, just east of Blankenbaker. Quite a few banded and sometimes collared birds, but you have got to Jeff Foiles em with wonder bread and pellet rifle. Hunt from a mini van and take your shots from inside with the side door slid open.

    If there is anything else I can help with, just let me know!
