F&W busted a Livingston County man with 34 deer heads and 2 turkey. The man, David Ray, had previously be busted in in 1995 for illegally taking game. Ray will pay at least $753 for each deer and $563 for each turkey so that's a minimum of $26,728 +$1,000 fine, a year in jail, and loss of hunting previleges. He also needs a good kick in the behind from residents of Livingston County!

It's been over for only about two weeks and I already can't wait for that opening day 2010. Luckily, a fairly long turkey season will ease the pain. Then it's time for food plot planting, putting out the scouting cameras, sighting in the bow, hanging stands, and back at it again in 10. September can't get here fast enough.

If you have any doubt these people are absolute nutcases.............

**Cincinnati Hunting and Fishing Show-January 20-24 at the Duke Energy Convention Center. The Stephens buck from Ohio will be on display there. If you haven't seen it..........it had 35 inch main beams. Unreal.
**Louisville Boat, RV, and Sportshow -January 20-24 at the Kentucky Int'l Convention Center in Louisville. KDFWR will offer a free boat safety course. It will also feature a hunting pavillion sponsered by Ky F&W. Mike Beaty and the Beaty Buck (another Ohio buck) will be there. There will also be a big buck contest sponsered by Awesome Antlers.
Rooting large brown bear out of the Alaskan bush can be very dangerous. In my guiding days it was up to me to always back them up or worse go find the bruins after the client fired and it disappeared. My backup rifle is a .505 Gibbs. "Mr.Gibbs" as he is generally referred to, got his name from my friend and client Denny Crum, Hall of Fame Basketball coach from Louisville,Ky.

UPDATE: no dice in the cold and snow yesterday. I saw 29 does/fawns but the big buck didn't show himself. I was trying to get a doe that walks with a pretty bad limp but she's sharp.

As reported today by Wave3, Jim Strader has filed a lawsuit against Kentucky Fish and Wildlife. The lawsuit basically says that F&W has blackballed him for disagreeing with and speaking out about F&W policy. According to Strader, F&W ordered their folks not to attend the Jim Strader Hunting and Fishing Expo in February. Strader says his civil rights were violated and that commisioner Jonathan Gassett defamed him in a F&W newsletter. I get the newsletter but did not see that in it. I will have to go back and review. As I've stated many times before, I'm not a big fan of Strader necessarily and don't typically enjoy his radio show but I will have to say that he's one of the very few outdoorsman with a voice in the state of Kentucky and this lawsuit, if valid, is very interesting.
