    I look up people on Telecheck every year who tell me of deer they have killed. It is amazing the number of people who don’t check their deer. Doesn’t mean they are all killing more deer than they should but I suspect that is the plan for most.

    There was CWD paperwork on a table, that was unattended? You were able to review that paperwork? What WMA were you on, and who, exactly, was doing the CWD sampling?

    Yes, indeed there was, along with quite a few viles of samples. I had discovered an unlocked door the previous day, when searching for a ladies room, thankfully locating one there. I noticed all the first day, but refrained from looking; however, being curious as a cat, more times than not, I walked over to investigate the second time. That is when I began to try and decipher all.

    Off to the far left margin, there was a column with no header, wherein I noticed many "yes/yes" statements. Having only recently learned about CWD, such caused me great concern; therefore, the next time that I ran across one of the extremely helpful employees I had met back in 2016, I explained what I had done and made inquiry, as to whether that column indicated CWD had been positive within said samples. He told me no. I then asked if he knew of any having tested positive, and thankfully, his reply was the same.

    I told him that I wasn't trying to be nosey, via looking at all, explaining that all simply gave me something more to do, and I also ensured that it was okay for me to enter to use the ladies room, because I simply do not relish the idea of being caught on a cam doing so, out on the WMA, lol. He told me such was perfectly fine. I did notice that when I stopped in the next time, the door was locked, but yet another nice employee unlocked it for me, and he then kindly answered additional, nonrelated questions.

    They are all extremely knowledgeable, hard working individuals, and I feel safe around them. I possess high confidence that they know my every move, as does the new game warden, whom I called again just the other night, after finding myself stranded there after dark. He had previously told me that I could call him anytime with questions about deer, but I try not to bother him, being that I have yet to formally meet him.

    That's a pretty good soft shoe your dancing. I'll ask again. Which WMA? You've made contact with dept employees, correct?

    Guess what? I had another damsel in distress moment the other morning, when at the WMA. I was parked on the main road, thought my car battery had died, directly beside all of those mega mallards.

    I popped the hood on the car, and along came the manager of that one private hunting club (the one whom will be feeding ducks to the bald eagles) located directly beside all, as well. He had two of his employees in tow, and then one other nice man came along, in the process.

    They quickly diagnosed the situation and resolved my matter. We began chatting, and I told him that some man (you) had been giving me a hard time on a hunting website, constantly trying to ascertain my locale. He made inquiry as to why I was on a hunting website, further presuming that I might be publishing some of my photographs, and I told him no, that I am simply attempting to learn more. I told him that I have refused to answer your repeated question, and he and the other men laughed. To be explicitly clear, ye shall not obtain that information, from me, before I am ready to divulge it. In other words, you should stop asking me.

    Kentucky Deer Harvest
    The following table contains harvest totals for whitetail deer hunting in Kentucky. Kentucky currently uses Telecheck for hunters to report big game harvests, call 800.245.4263 to report a kill.
    Kentucky utilized physical, mandatory, deer check-in starting in the 1976-77 deer season. Prior to that a random mail survey was used to estimate harvest numbers. During the 1998 season Kentucky switched to a combination of TeleCheck and physical checking, with about 20% of harvest reported via SelfCheck that year. The 1999 deer season marked the first year with Telecheck as the only option for reporting a big game harvest.

    I do as I please; therefore, if you wish to tell them "Hello", find them and tell them, all by your lonesome, and by the way, Happy Thanksgiving.

    Obviously. Entering into private buildings. You keep doing as you please. Somehow, you've managed to find a WMA that hundreds of thousands of hunters from Kentucky do no know about. You've found a duck hunt club adjoining the WMA that has more ducks than anyone in Kentucky has ever seen. You've managed to find a secret CWD testing facility...oh wait, you're not the one that cut the hole in the fence at the Grindstone Branch nuclear test facility, are you?

    Quite so, in fact. It truly is not my fault, that I am apparently better at finding mega mallards than you happen to be, now is it, hmmmm? Nor is it that the men around there are so very helpful to me. Don't be jealous! Haha....
