Eastern Kentucky Elk

I'm in Eastern Kentucky inside Knott and Floyd county watching some elk this weekend with my lovely wife. Knott County is the self proclaimed Elk Capital of the East. We've seen a lot of cows so far. Knott County's tourism maps all show "elk viewing stations". I'm not sure what that might be, but the locations on the map must have disappeared from the face of the earth because they aren't marked by signs and no one in the community knows where they are. I was unsure if I was even supposed to be in some of the areas period. Inside Breathitt, there were clearly marked signs. The Elk Expo is next weekend (August 28/29) in Knott County. It's a great area. I'd just like to see signage be more visible if they're going to call themselves the Elk Capital of the East.

Big Buck

Got this buck on film in early July with two months to grow.....the video is terrible with me nervously trying to free hand it..................enjoy. He's tall and WIDE. The best look shows up around the 7 minute mark. I have one much bigger on film but he's gonna be hidden until I get him! :)


Good gracious. Enough is enough of this miserably hot weather. We have three weeks before deer season 2010 and it's still going to be hanging around 100 this week. It's so hot, all of our bass are dying. Nothing like seeing 8 to 10 pound bass floating on top of a 90+ degree water pond. SUCKS. Pics tomorrow.

Trail Cam Pics

I haven't gotten much good on trail cams this year, although I do have a couple of tremendous bucks on film. Here are a couple of interesting bucks. The one from the Remington camera looks tall and wide. The other one is in the background and his hard to tell. It looks like he's got a long main beam. After posting, the pics are too small to see anything!

New Versus Hunting Show-Goin' Country

My favorite hunting channel, Versus, is getting ready to debut a new hunting show Goin' Country. The show will be hosted by former American Idol finalist, Kristy Lee Cook. It will air on Sunday nights at 9 p.m. Guests will include Aaron Tippin, Jake Owen, and Blake Lewis. Goin' Country will also feature Cook's work with a horse rescue progra called the Kristy Lee Horse Heaven Foundation

I've been very lucky to get to participate in numerous podcasts for Versus Country TV. Look for a possible Kristy Lee Cook interview in the coming weeks.

Hanging Stands

Hanging stands in the summertime is just not fun. The heat index has been near 100 seemingly every day this summer. Not only is it sweaty, I've learned that taking an old stand doown covered in poison ivy just isn't very intelligent. I've spent the last three days covered in lotion. On a positive note, I only have one more stand to hang and one to repair. Countdown is on.
