Anyone know who won the rifle rafle at the HFH cookoff
did anyone go to the wild game cook out at field and streams today, it's off of bardstown road. they had some good food there. they had a representative from hoyt and mathews there also. food was good and i learnt more about the new hoyts.

>--> if it's brown it's down<--<
As some of you know i shoot a Darton Maverick 98 version
i have shot the dickens out of it...and my bus cables started to show some wear so i figured i'd send it in before season to make sure i didnt have a mis-hap mid season ...
NOT only did they return my bow within 5 days when i pulled it out of the box NOT only did they replace my bus cables they put on new limbs and new cams ........AWESOME CUSTOMER SERVICE
i assure you not many compaines out there would do this...so i hope you'll consider this when making a decision on your next bow

I got my patch today. They look pretty good again this year. Now, if I can just get drawn to hunt them big rascals.
My wife and boys spotted a black panther, two years ago in southern Jessamine County. It was slightly smaller than our black lab and sitting on a gravel road on a seldom used farm around midday. They got a good look when my wife mistook it for our dog and called out. The dog was behind her and the "cat" loped off. It was about 40 yards off and they got a good, unobstructed look.

Last year a sighting was reported near Wilmore, in Jessamine County, and the general assumption seemed to be that someone's exotic pet got away.

I winder if anyone has had, or has heard of a similar experience?

(Just discovered this forum today by the way).
When does one find out if they are 1 of the chosen ones for the elk hunt.

The Living Stream exhibit opens at Salato Wildlife Education Center tomorrow. This exhibit is intended to model Elkhorn Creek. It really turned out well. If you have little ones you should take them by there if you get a chance. There's a viewing window under the stream so you can actually see what aquatic life is like from the bottom up.

After a request from the Kentucky Fish and Wildlife Foundation, Toyota donated the funds necessary to make this exhibit possible. Go see it if you get the chance. Admission is free![:)]
Last fall while bowhunting one evening I saw a bobcat walking along the edge of a field. My wife got me a deer cam for Father's Day and on the second roll of film I got this picture.[​IMG][/url]/img]

Any help would be great.[V]
Yesterday we went to my Mom and Dad's. Dad has some 55 gal. barrels beside his barn. The tops are cut out, and rainwater from the barn roof falls into the barrels. He uses the water to water his fruit trees he set out.

All of the barrels are Full of tadpoles. I've never seen this before. (In a barrel, I mean. I've seen tadpoles before.)

Anyway, a 55 gal. barrel is pretty tall. How did the frog get in to lay the eggs?
i see some of you all talking about being on KET. what's the name of the shows/date/and time? thanx

I have came up with a couple of new hunting products that I know would do well. What's the best way to make them become a reality?
This year we put in about 10 acres in new food plots on a small farm (clover, corn and sunflowers), and the neighbor’s cows are starting to get in on us. They already messed up some of our dove field. Right now it is just a couple of cows, but he’s got at least 100 head and in the fall/winter I fear for the cornfield. We’ve talked to him and he is not very helpful and he does not seem to care and is never in a hurry to fix his fence. Basically, the guy doesn’t get along with any of the local farmers.

I’d prefer not to shoot cows or pick a fight cause both lead to a burned barn. Now we could put up a fence, but we should not have to. I remember you guys talking about splitting costs with a neighbor on a fence and that would cost us money we don’t really want to spend but might be a good threat. His cows are fenced with electric now.

Anybody, got any ideas what we can do???
Sky or anybody else, do we have any grounds to legally get something out of this guy or to make him keep his cows behind his fence? I'd figure we could go for losses, but that don't help after the fact.
Can anyone give me some how-to's on starting a hunting club. What are some of the thing you need to do. Does it all need to be on the same land? I would like to start one in my area(daviess, ohio county).

Hunting is life!
Glad I don't live in Illinoise!

FIREARMS -- No one may acquire or possess any firearm or ammunition within the state without having a valid firearms owner's identification card in their possession, according to the State of Illinois.

They are a bordering state. Hopefully none of our lawmakers get a silly idea like this.

I'm about to think it's time to get rid of law makers.

WILL SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME HOW HAVING HONEST PEOPLE REPORT TO THE STATE THAT THEY ARE GUN OWNERS WILL HELP IN THE ILLEGAL USE OF GUNS. MORE PEOPLE DIE FROM ALCOHOL BUT THEY DON'T MAKE PEOPLE REPORT THAT THEY ARE USERS OF ALCOHOL. Well I'm done here Im gonna go get me a beer "just don't tell anyone"

Anybody have an idea on the gross weight of a Ford 4600 tractor?

Thanks,
I have not seen anything on it here but, last week a CO. was killed in boone co. He had made a traffic stop the person then took off and he pursued. He was involved in an accident and killed, his name was Officer Doug Bryant who did a lot of work on the Ohio river. Our prayers are with his family.

I was just wondering if anyone was gigging any frogs. My buddies and I are heading out this weekend for an all nighter. Do any of you guys have any suggestions on a real good light. I have trouble every year gettng a light that will shoot a solid beam. Just about every light I get has a lil black spot in the middle of the beam. I had Craftsman light once that was like a laser but someone stole it from my truck. I was just wondering.
Can anyone refer me to a hunting club in the ohio, daviess, mclean, muhlenburg county areas(central to western ky)?

I am interested in hearing everyone's opinions on disabled hunters and the programs, etc available to them.
does anyone have any exprience with the tasco exp 3x9x42/54 scope? thanks gotopless
Just a word of caution if you have a 200 gallon Moultrie feeder and you want to replace the plastic funnel with the metal one they sell separately. Tread lightly. You have to replce the spinner base too as leaving the plastic one on allows for too much clearance between the funnel and the spinner. Yes, all your feed will run out basically overnight. The metal spinner that comes with the funnel doesn't seat against the spinning axle tight enough. The result is that the spinner either doesn't spiun at all or "misses". I reconfigured mine yesterday. Threw out the metal funnel and went back to plastic. Hopefully, the varmits will give me a break this time.
It's been a while and thought I'd repost that the folks on this site are trying to raise enough oney to sponsor a school in this worthwhile project. Most of you know about the project and how siccessful it's been. through the Cyberhunter's, were have an account sit up, and if you donate at least $10, you can submit a pick of a school of your choice. 1 pick per $10 donation. <b></b>We need to generate about $1800 to get a school all the needed equipment<b></b>

Thanks, if yoy want to donate, you can mail your donation and school pick to Grouseguy--AKA Mark Rogers

Send your check to: First National Bank of Grayson.

If anyone doubts my intentions I am a regular poster at these sites, NYDeer.com, NCDeer.com, HuntAmerica.com and a moderator at HuntingForums.com. This guy has got my dander up.


Check this out.....I thought it was a joke at first.....


Hunters feeling frustrated by the Fund for Animals latest protest of banning hunting in National Wildlife Refuges in Arlington, Virginia? Wow, this is the best news ever! People and their pets are being shot at an alarming rate by hunters every year, many of the shootings have unfortunately proven to be fatal, yet hunters go free and kill again.

Most of the people were "mistaken" for a Deer and/or other innocent Wildlife, by an overzealous hunter. Hunters are influenced by their low moral peer group that harbor much biased discrimination against Animal Rights Activists. Hunters not only victimize and murder innocent people, their pets, livestock, and destroy private property with intent to criminally trespass on posted-private property, hunters steal anything they can find, hunters also destroy public property. Hunters use public roadsigns, power pole transformers, abandoned homes, car batteries(dumped, which releases toxic acid into the soil and environment when shot), mailboxes, and birds for target practice. Microscopic lead "spray" from the trajectory of high powered rifles, pistols, rifles, shotguns, machine guns, and assault weapons - enters the lungs through breathing which is then transferred to the bloodstream then stores in the brain and bone marrow of the lower extremities. Children that are "taught to hunt wildlife using guns are susciptible to lead poisoning, decreasing their chances of acquiring a decent job later in life. How does this happen you ask?

For every 10 (micrograms)mcg/dl(deciliter) increase in blood lead levels, there is a lowering of mean[average] I.Q. Intelligence Quotient in children by 4 to 7 points. An average loss of 5 points places 50% more children into the I.Q. 80 category,...
does anyone own a verona shotgun? if so, how do you like it?

Injured Hunter Sues Bullet Manufacturers...
When a professional big game hunter on safari in Africa shot a charging lion from 30 yards, he expected the cat to die, or at least be stopped. Instead, the lion mauled him.

According to a federal lawsuit filed late last month against two bullet manufacturers, one of which is the Federal Cartridge Company, it was bad bullets that allowed the lion to attack Rolf Rohwer.
His attorney says Rohwer suffered permanent damage to his legs, arm and back. Rohwer says he was trying a new type of ammunition on the day of the attack.

Officials at Federal Cartridge hadn't seen the suit and were unable to comment on it, said Rod Bitz, spokesman for Alliant Techsystems Inc., Federal's parent company. The other company named in the suit is Trophy Bonded Bullets Inc. of Houston, Texas.

if he was such a pro, he wouldve tested and known what the bullets were capable of. either way its a b.s.lawsuit[:(!]

Hi, first of all my name is Jim. I am moving to E-town in August. I am a co-op shooter for Matthews, also shoot for Bo-doodle, Bulls-eye, AAE, and Fletcher Archery. Where is a good club to join in the E-town area, and are there a lot of shoots in KY. Thanks and good hunting.
A discussion has came up and I'm not for sure that I know the answer. The question being " is it illegal to sell, say a snapping turtle to someone for human consumption?". Or what about trading something of value for it _besides money?
we are so greatful to be living in the USA..
and the great state of Kentucky, is blessed in many ways
from wildlife to horses to great people....
