Weather man is killin us

Man, what a horrible start to the hunting weekend. The wind was brutal tonight. With the warmth, the deer were hunkered down. Not much movement at all. The rain will wash out Saturday morning. If you're hunting bottom lands like me, the rivers very well may be out of their banks by tomorrow afternoon. Rough weekend for hunting. Sunday does look pretty good across the state.

Prime Time for Bow Hunters

Man, it's prime time for bow hunters to be out and the weather is horrible. We've been seeing small bucks cruising and sparring for a couple of weeks. Last night, I saw the first evidence of the big boys being fired up after watching a horse of a drop tine 11 pointer destroy some trees and bump does all over the farm. Unfortunately for me, I picked the wrong stand. Can't wait to get out in the next few days.

Fall Turkey Shotgun Season

Man, I've got to get on my game. Sitting on the computer at 10:30 last night, I realized today was the opening of the fall tukey shotgun season. I've got a flock pinned down. Hopefully, we'll get a crack at them in the morning.

More sparring bucks tonight

It was a wierd night in the stand tonight for my son and I. We had deer all over us but not many offered shots. Like every night we've been out lately, bucks were sparring hard. Tonight, it was two brutes of 8 pointers. One was outrageously tall. A coyote ruined the night right before dark and busted up the entire group out in the bean field. Can't wait to get back to that stand with the crossbow.

Youth with a 230 inch giant from Spencer Co.

Good gracious. The big bucks keep falling. This one scored 230" gross and netted 218". The young lady is 14 year old Michaella Monroe. Wow.

Lewis Co Giant

Finally, a picture surfaces of the Lewis Co. giant. Supposed to gross 211. Apparently, it took them a while to find him. More details to come. Pic from It will be close to Kentucky's all time B&C record. Those G2s are outrageous.

Another Big Kentucky Bull

John Mullins of Lebanon Juction killed this bull on the 2nd weekend Bull Elk Hunt near Prestonsburg. I like the character of this bull's rack. Congrats to John.

Joshua Webb Bull

Joshua Webb killed this fantastic bull in Knott County. It green scored 330" with a 39" inside spread and it weighed 700 lbs. The bull was radio collared and ear tagged. F&W said that this bull is only 4 1/2 years old. Think about that. A fully mature bull is 8 to 9 years old and this dude scored 330 at 4 1/2. This bull was killed on the same property that the Ky Afield cameras were with a gentleman that killed a big 6x8 that grossed over 360 inches. The Kentucky Afield episode will air 8:30pm October 17th and 4:30pm October 18th on KET. Tim Farmer stayed at Danny Combs' Elk Camp who is a friend of the Webb's. Congrats to Joshua and the other hunters.

More Kentucky Bull Elk

Here are pics of two bulls taken opening morning in the same strip mine that the Webb's and the Kentucky Afield cameras hunted on. The bottom is a big 7 x 7 that Troy Combs from Hazard, KY took. The top picture is also a 7 x 7 was taken by an 83 year old man who was guided by Danny Combs of Lost Mountain Outfitters. That's awesome. I love the mix of genetics that Fish and Wildlife have thrown into this elk herd by stocking elk from so many different spots of the United States.

Big Elk Down in First Weekend

Some big elk were killed during the first weekend of the Kentucky Elk Season. I'm trying to land some pics to post. I know there was one big 6x6 killed on the Czarr Coal Company in Martin County where I hunted in 05. A big 8x7 killed will be featured on Kentucky Afield this Saturday.
