Youth Elk Hunt-This Weekend

Good luck to the Youth hunters this weekend that got drawn for the elk hunt in a very prestigeous area.

Also, we know a fella speaking to a F&W official who says on one coal mining operation, there is a Kentucky elk they believe will score well over 400". That is an absolute monster and why I believe the world record will fall in Kentucky in the next 5-10 years.

200 incher killed in Verona, KY

There are rumors of a 200 inch netting 180 being killed in Boone Co. There is a pic of the deer here.

Got to invest in some Scent Lok

Man, I've got to invest in some Scent Lok. I had a ton of deer coming in last night with the wind in my favor and they still scented me. I've got to invest in some scent block of some sort if I'm going to bow hunt. Anybody have any suggestions as to the best brand?

Larry Weishuhn Versus Country Podcast.............Listen Now

Here is the podcast with Larry Weishuhn from Versus Country TV. Hope I didn't sound too stupid when I asked my Kentucky deer hunting question. I believe I am 2nd question of the podcast around the 6 minute mark. Mr. Weishuhn actually had a fantastic answer and sounded very excited about his Kentucky whitetail experiences. The podcast is very interesting and informative. Please give it a listen.

Also, check out Versus Country this hunting season. I love the hunting on Versus. In addition to Mr. Whitetail, I'm a huge fan of The Bucks of Tecomate with David Morris.

Hunter's public enemy #1-Cass Sunstein

Rarely to I talk about or even care about Politics but the more I see of the Obama administration, the more concerned I get for our ability to continue to enjoy the outdoors. Cass Sunstein just got appointed and then somehow confirmed to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs within the Office of Management and Budget (the gatekeeper for White House policy for the Department of the Interior, Department of Agriculture, FBI, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms). He is widely known as an animal rights activist and against the 2nd amemndment right to bear arms. He's on record to have said he'd like to end all hunting. This guy is an idiot and it shows the Obama administration has no room in it for the outdoorsmen and woman of the United States.

Folks, it's time to step up and get together to fight for our rights has hunters, gun owners, and outdoorsman. It's a scary time for us and we've got to get to the polls and start voting for outdoors supporting politicians.

Not a good first week weather wise..................

It's been a frustrating week one for deer hunters with pop up thundershowers and hot weather. Looks like a hot weekend and then maybe a break to the 70s next week and thank goodness for that full moon going away. Good luck.

Slow Hot day Sunday

I went out for the first time Sunday. I lost at least 5 lbs in sweat. I had a great set up but no bucks. I had a doe at 27 yards and some turkeys behind me. Slow and hot day. From the looks over at, big bucks are falling all over the state.

Opening Day 2009

Anybody get out this morning? I did not. I may hang a stand this afternoon and go tomorrow. May try to get a turkey this weekend.

Versus Country Podcast

Just got off the phone from the Versus Country Larry Weishuhn podcast. It was very enjoyable and I'll post as soon as Versus releases it to us. Mr. Whitetail was extremely insightful and well spoken. He stressed the importance of getting youth involved in hunting and of the wildlife coalitions.

Larry said he'd be back in the Bluegrass state this season. He stated that the deer program in Kentucky was tremendous and that he's noticed that Kentuckians want to be "hush hush" about the quality of deer and the number of Pope and Young and Boone and Crockett deer being taken in the state.

Thanks to Versus Country and be sure to check out Mr. Weishuhn's lineup of shows on Versus TV. I'll be posting new show times and previews when they are released.
