    Hey guys I am new to central Kentucky. Me and my dad would make trips to hunt the Daniel Boone 10+ years ago. We always had good success. It being 10+ years ago since I have hunted in Kentucky what are some good public lands to check out close within 1 hour of Lexington. Thanks in advance.

    Kleber, Veterans, and Miller Welch are 3 I can think of. I’m sure others will chime in with some options. Good Luck.

    I would agree with the search options on the website at KYDFG.
    As far as the coon hunting thing...coon hunting for all responsible hunters is awesome and some of my best memories are doing it growing up. Tresspassing, being responsible, and respectful of private property has given it a bad rap in a few posts on here. All it takes is one bad apple to ruin it for everyone. Good luck with your search.

    No sir. Not offended.
    Coon hunt myself. Just think some of the "coon hunting" post on here can get pretty comical with responses.

    i agree. Unfortunately I had to get out of coon hunting this year due to moving and everything else I had to get rid of everything.

    Advice? If you're a refugee from the northeast coast or left coast, whatever you do, don't say anything along the lines of "That's not how we did it in___________" ...

    I agree. A lot of people have given it a bad rap due not being responsible.
