    I just checked the regs. There is no season or bag limit on turtles. I have had turtle stew, pretty tasty. Been told fried turtle is good too. Shoot them and eat em.

    Ain't that the truth. They are terrible.

    If you live northern Ky you ought to be killing birds on the Creeks and rivers. Buddy of mine lives just out of Frankfort and says the Creeks have a lot of birds on them. You have to wait till it freezes hard one night and float a 5-10 mile trip.

    I did that for several years before I had a boat with a blind . If it was a hard freeze we would average about three birds a trip on Creeks in SCentral Ky. Heck I still do it every now and then. I have even found likely creek access points like low water bridges and paddled upstream till I found some Woodies. I would kill one or two if I got lucky and then float back down. Don't do the same thing as last year if you hunted that much and killed so few. You could put a canoe in lots of places and be much more consistent.

    I made a knife I am taking to a guy to ask if I can hunt a second property of his this evening. I got permission to hunt the first by helping unload a semi of wedding chairs . Never met the guy before. Hunted for 4 years now on his pond . Good for about 3-5 birds a trip. Killed 75 total off the one pond since started hunting it. Only place I've got to hunt besides public. Took several years to find it . Point is, persistent scouting and asking pays off eventually.
