    Today's the last day to apply if anyone's interested. I never get drawn but always apply for some reason. Applied for Ballard, sloughs and Jenny hole. Been applying for quite some time never hunted any of it. From what I hear most of its not worth hunting, but i guess itd be a change of scenery if i were to get drawn. Anyone else apply?

    I've been putting in for preference the last few years...

    I'm assuming you have a bunch of points saved up? I have high hopes for the future of KY's WMA's so I'm looking forward to hunting them again soon, but we have left the state the last few years for our travel hunts.

    I think the last time I drew Ballard it took me 3 preference points to get drawn for the days that I wanted. But you can also take any day and have a higher probability of getting drawn. I didn't even go the last time I was drawn because the weather (and hunting) was terrible. We hunted down there one time in a thunderstorm and killed ducks til quitting time.

    Yall can have sloughs. I'll take my $3, go buy a cheeseburger, and get more satisfaction than a hunt there.

    I used to put in every year. I'd rather just go to ND or somewhere alike with alot of public ground and ALOT more birds. A ND trip is pretty cheap if 4 or so pitch in for fuel and house rental. My part of the house rental was like 100 more than 2 nights in a hotel in West KY. Add more for fuel and food and you can have a whole week up there. If you are within an hour of the wma then that's different I guess.

    I quit putting in a few years ago. I can go to S.D. N.D. and Canada. Hunt 7 to 10 days in these places. 4 way split around 800 dollars a piece. Plus more birds to hunt. Duck Geese Quail Pheasant and Grouse. Kansas hunt this year in January first time going. Buddy went last year. Ducks Geese and Quail Pheasant. Every place we go is all private land hunting. Just about every farmer will let you hunt. Canada trip was called off this year. 2 of our guys couldn't go. So we had to back out.

    I didn’t get drawn for any of them so I got 1 preference point for each. I even picked hunt any dates and even boat blinds. Oh well

    It’s time to make quota hunts great again. We need an electronic wall preventing all non residents from being allowed to participate. It’s no secret IN and IL flood the Sloughs and Ballard quota hunt application system. KY4KY!

    I pulled a Sloughs unit for the opener. I drive a white toyata tundra with rockstar wheels and monster sticker on the back glass. If you see me stop by.

    If I make the drive to West KY itll be the daily draw and I'll be on the Beaver Hut. Even if I get drawn last I will be there first it's how we roll, there are ways. My favorite hole in KY to hunt. I'm sure a few on here know exactly where I'm talking about.

    I finally got drawn for Ballard this year. From what I have read, you don’t know your unit until the morning of the hunt each day. Should I just go ahead and bring the boat to get to the spots or can you walk in? Also, how hard is it to find your unit in the dark? I’ve never hunted there before. Thanks for any advice
