    It's been years since I posted a hearty thanks to y'all for letting my family hunt the Commonwealth of Kentucky, especially the Modern Weapons Season for deer.

    We closed up camp yesterday with a bunch of records.

    7 deer went to the pole
    4 bucks-- 3 went 8 points

    We also had some camp-record-tickling events like:
    Most 200 yard+ shots
    Fastest deer to the meatpole-- under an hour

    I also want to take time again to compare our experience with my home state of Ohio. I moved my hunting to KY over 20 years ago. Even with the out-of-state fees, we all feel we get a better deal in KY than Ohio. The big reason is that we're allowed to hunt with reasonable centerfire rifles, we have bigger bag limits, and most importantly we get to hunt in much more reasonable weather during the peak of the rut instead of this gawdawful mess we got going on this AM.

    I used to really dread the Ohio Openers. It always rained, sleeted or snowed-- usually all three. The temperatures always plummeted. I spent more time trying to stay warm and dry than I ever got to seriously hunt. KY? This year, I think I'd filled all my tags before we saw freezing.

    Anyhow, I'm safe and warm by the fire watching the snow come down, and I just thought I'd say thanks again.

    Congrats on a good season! Never understood the centerfire restrictions in Ohio. Yeah a lot of it is flat but a good bit isnt.

    As soon as possible. They may close the plant in January. That would be reason enough to retire. After that, I'll have little keeping me up here.
