There is a proposed bill that would significantly affect the ability of the KDFWR to function as a managing entity of Ky's wildlife. There is an attempt to have deer and elk reclassified as livestock due to implications with CWD. IF the deer and elk are reclassified they would then be under the control of the dept. of agriculture, not the KDFWR. If this were to happen, then as much as $409 million would be diverted from the KDFWR to the dept. of agriculture. It has been mentioned before that the state would like to be able to get some funds from the KDFWR diverted into the state budget. This is one way that it could happen. If you would like to see the KDFWR retain control over the elk and deer herds in this state, and retain control of the money involved in this situation I urge you to call this number. 1-800-372-7181. It only takes about 2 minutes and they will give the message to your representatives. Please call now. All calls on this subject must be received by noon on 2/4. thanks for your time.

I am not a spectator of nature, but rather a participant; a hunter.
from the nahc weekly news:
Update: Assembly Committee Approves Wisconsin Right-To-Hunt Amendment
A Wisconsin Assembly committee approved a proposed constitutional amendment last week guaranteeing the right to hunt and fish in the state.

The Assembly Natural Resources Committee voted 10-0 in favor of the state's "sporting heritage" amendment, which would guarantee the rights to fish, hunt, trap and take game subject only to reasonable restrictions as prescribed by law.

The amendment passed both houses of the Legislature last year. It must be approved by two consecutive Legislatures and approved by voters in a statewide referendum before it can be added to the Wisconsin Constitution. It now goes to the full Assembly for a vote.

Chase Powell
Can someone tell me why there is a crow season?
Well I am going all out. I am going to take the last hunting trip I will probably take for a while. I am booking an African Safari for 2004. Going for a change of senery. Anyone ever been or want to go?
i recently heard somewhere that there is going to be a Gun & Knife show in the area around louisville does anyone have any info on the dates, location?

also does anyone have any antlers they would part with to be made into knife handles....a local knife maker is making some VERY great looking custom knives he will trade a knife made out of your own antlers for a knife made just for you skinner, or if you perfer a smaller or larger he can fix you right up also makes sheaths for each knife out of tanned hide...these knives have been selling for upwards of $60-$100 i told him i would see if i can help him locate some..as he is running low

(*** also the antlers he perfers is a average size the bigger ones dont work very well**)

Gawd, I'm glad there are deer hunters that will go out before sun-up and strap themselves to the side of a tree 20 feet off the ground, with the wind chill of a minus whatever, set there motionless and hope.
I'm glad there are duck hunters, that will pray for a blizzard, so they can wade in ice.
I'm glad there are coon hunters that climb over hill after hill in hopes of seeing the glow of an eye up in a tree.
I'm glad there are 'rat trappers that will spend most of the morning walking through ice water, chasing a bounty that will net about 10 cents per hour worked.
I'm glad there are 'yote hunters that sit all day in the snow, hoping for a glimsp of of smelly dog that no one wants.
You all make me feel "normal".[^]

<i>This is a letter sent out by Ronnie Wells of the Kentucky Grouse Hunters Association. Any help that any of you guys can give would be much appreciated. I've been up there grouse hunting with these boys and believe me, it ain't no picnic. Low populations and rough country. Numbers always help. If you can spare $12/year, please join this organization. Nothing but good can come of it!</i>

Kentucky Grouse Hunters


The Kentucky Grouse Hunters wants to take this time to thank all their members for not only joining the efforts of saving their grouse season, but your input in any forum in which it came.

We are two months into this season, and looking down the barrel at one more surge from fish and wildlife to shorten season, to at least Jan. 31st and maybe Dec 31st.

The grouse study ended the last day of Sept. 2002. Results will be
discussed at the KDFW committee meeting in Feduary.

The Kentucky Grouse Hunters needs your help as well as, any other grouse hunters in your area, to combat this short coming.

The Kentucky Grouse Hunters have carried the torch for the last four
years. By attending meeting in Frankfort, working with the LOKS, spear heading habitat work on our WMA's and other activities to promote positive development for grouse and grouse habitat.

With your help and the help of the LOKS along with the CYBER HUNTERS we can improve habitat and the number of grouse in Kentucky.

Send your membership dues to Ronnie Wells, PO Box 1588, Paintsville
Kentucky, 41240. Make your checks payable to Paintsville Recreation
Department or the Kentucky Grouse Hunters. Dues are $12.00 per year,
running from Jan.1 to Dec. 31st.

Thank you for your envolvement in past years and hopefully in the future.

A word of caution, Bobcat season in the western zone is closing early. This Sunday will be the last day, Jnuary 19. The season limit of 300 cats has been reached.
Will anyone be at the Jim Straders Hunting and Fishing expo in Louisville repesenting UBK or Cyberhunters?

The Cyberhunters are collecting hunter's opinions from a survey compliled by questions asked by the folks from this site. We'd like to get as many completed surveys as possible. The data will be shared in future meeting with the Dept. and/or the Commission. Instead of selecting participants like the Dept. does, any licensed or licensed-exempt sportsman can participate in the survey. Instructions for the return are on the surveys cover page.

To get your copy, go to this link and download. There are two options, depending on the operating system your running. Please help us to help you by completing this survey and mailing it back. Thanks.

The survey is at the bottom of this page: http://grandviewhuntingclub.homestead.com/homepage.html
Just wanted to let you guys know that I've changed my username. I'll now be using the name that will go on the side of my bowfishing boat. I haven't shot a Mathews bow in over a year now, so MQ1ofKy is dead and gone. I guess I should contact Chad about my Moderator duties, but since it is only in the KDFW section it doesn't matter. Those guys were run off this site a long time ago. Larer.

Flintlock, Salty. Any of you guys see the hog that was killed in Clark Co during ML season?
Rural tradition of hunting shows signs of decline

By Patrik Jonsson | Special to The Christian Science Monitor from the January 09, 2003 edition - http://www.csmonitor.com/2003/0109/p01s02-ussc.html

RALEIGH, N.C. - Steve Johnston Jr. doesn't even notice the freezing rain heaving across Little Lick Creek as he scans the brushy bank from his camouflaged boat.

After an hour of spotting only a perturbed heron with his binoculars, he suddenly blurts out "duck!" Three ringnecks dart by. Mr. Johnston doesn't shoot them. Today is just a scouting mission to prepare for his favorite activity: taking his teenage sons, Tripp and Robert, hunting.

Johnston is hoping to imbue his sons with a love of hunting, a pastime slowly on the wane in many parts of America. As fewer fathers take youngsters out into the woods and more suburbanites balk at a sport they see as both dangerous and cruel, some observers predict the number of hunters in the United States could fall by as much as 50 percent in the next 20 years.

For a number of states, that's becoming a concern. Hunters keep deer populations in check and revenue from hunting licenses are key to conservation revenues. Others lament the loss of a father-son ritual that they consider as much a part of American life as the family farm.

As a result, several states - to the great dismay of animal-rights groups - are taking steps to encourage more people to sit in duck blinds and on deer stands:

• North Carolina is launching its first-ever "let's go hunting" campaign, in part as a game-management tool.

• Maine has introduced Young Hunter Days to encourage adolescents to try the sport with the help of volunteer mentors who guide them on their first outing.

• Alabama gives new hunters first access to forests at the start of deer season, so rookies can try their hand when the animals are not as wary - an attempt to lure more to the sport.

• In Illinois, game managers are holding learn-to-hunt...
I don't understand why the Cyberhunters and UBK should have so much of a say so in the decision to season dates and regs.It just seems to me that the majority of the hunters in this state aren't members of either organization.We all either buy our liscense over the phone off of the net or at a local vendor.It is all done by computer.Why couldn't each person be polled when they purchase hunting and fishing liscense.Looks like it would be a better view of what the average hunter wants.
Just my opinion

A sign of getting older looking for warmer clothing.

Has anyone tried polypropolene clothing be it outer wear or long underwear? If so what are your thought plus or minus.

Thanks
i will be hog hunting in tenn. the last weekin in march.if anyone would like to go . just e-mail me
I have a 7 month old Lab Pup who has problems. I owned his mother who was lost about 2 months ago, so he is my last of the line.

He has developed serious problems and can hardly get around. After laying down for a while he can hardly get up, being so stiff in the rear and back. He also seems to hurt in his front feet after walking a bit and shakes his head occasionally like there is a problem there also.

My vet is stumped. We took x-rays that didn't reveal any problems in the back and rear bone structure. He doesn't think it is hip dysplasia, which is common to the breed, due to the dogs young age and the x-rays. The x-rays should have also shown any problems that might be a result of his having been hit by a car. Cranial cruciate ligament rupture seems to be out due to his having problems all over.

The Doc prescribed Rimadyl but it doesn't seem to have helped. I have owned and raised several dogs over the years but have never seen anything like this.

Any ideas would be appreciated.
Hi Everybody
I just wanted to introduce myself this morning. I have been visiting here for the past few weeks and decided to become a member of this very nice and interesting forum.
I don't consider myself an avid hunter these days but I enjoy everything about the outdoors. Keep up the good work and interesting discussions and if I feel I can be of help to anyone I will definately offer my input.

I have a Remington Model 6 .22 Rifle. My grandfather gave it to me about 25 years ago. I have been trying to find out exactly how old it is. The serial number is 45230. If anyone can help I would greatly appreciate it.
Does the KBA or LKS have websites? If not can anyone put me in touch with whomever I need to speak to about memberships and organizational information?

Thanks

Kenny
Who got some good "toys"???

Maybe Uncle Lee won't hang me for this...[:p] I got some good buys last year at this sale.
Folks, The Dept. and the sportsman of Kentucky need our help. With the Budget shortfall, it appears that the Gov. is considering "taking" money from the F & W surplus fund. This is detailed a lot in the Cyberhunter's forum, but it is very important that we make the call to each of our legislators and voice our opinions that this money shouldn't be used. They need to fix the General Fund budget shortfall without taking our money. Here's an excerpt from Xtremes post:

Once again there are some eyes on OUR F&W dollars!! We need to contact our legislators and ask [politely] but firmly that the General Fund be addressed in a manner that will sustain itself financially and that the F&W dollars are dollars that belong to sports persons in this state.

The fact that the General Fund is 600 million$ in the hole is not our fault. If there is so much as a dollar taken out of the F&W monies we will lose all federal monies. We get approximately 24% of the revenue to operate the Dept. from Federal F&W tax dollars. This is nothing to take lightly to say the least!

For those of you who do not know who your legislators are dial 1-800-372-7181 and tell them where you live and they will tell you who are the legislators are in your area.

Please make the call!
<b>Valley Station</b> wins the Haydel's Cocobolo Duck Call.

<b>Multidigits</b> wins the Hunter's View Wildcat Treestand.

and last but not least,
<b>kybuck</b> wins the Mossy Oak Long Beard Turkey Vest.

I will send an email to each of you to get required information.

Thanks to everyone who entered, and I will try and get another giveaway on the site ASAP.

Was wondering if any of you guys have heard of an American Eagle brand shotgun. It was produced sometime in the 60's. The particular gun I am looking for is a 20-GA, double-barrel (side by side). My grandfather bought the gun new. I took my my first squirrel with the gun and it has a lot of meaning to me. He let my uncle borrow the gun, and to make a long story short my uncle traded the gun in Florida. Of course I can't find the exact gun now and I'd like to find a replacement if I can't find the original. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'd rather be huntin....
I am currently fencing in about 2 acres, 1.5 acres of woods, for a dog. I have a farm in Butler County and some cows. I have two young boys,3 and 4 years old. I want a dog for us to take around the farm with us and fishing / hunting. I don't duck hunt. I would like to take him to dove shoots and squirrel hunting with us. I want a female that I will have fixed. We want a dog to take canoeing with us and a generally good pet/hunting dog. What would be better, the yellow lab or the retriver? I will want to buy a pup late spring or summer, after turkey season. Do you know of any good bloodlines to buy from for this purpose that may have pups soon?

Thanks,
James

What will everyone be hunting Thanksgiving morning?
I grew up rabbit hunting Thanksgiving but have been duck hunting now for about 12 years. This year I might try rabbit hunting again unless the weather is cold and wet, then I will be at the duck pond.
I am a member of the Meade Co. High School Archery Club and we are trying to find some shoots going on around Kentucky. If anyone knows of any, please let me know.

Deer/Turkey Poaching Ring Broken Up In Ohio
Ohio wildlife officers say they’ve shut down a poaching ring that centered around a Jefferson County, Ohio, deer and turkey check station with the arrests Monday morning of eight people, including the shop owners.

Keith Beebee, and Karen Beebee, owners of K&L Sports in Richmond, Ohio, were the focus of the investigation. Also cited were Ken Dorsey, Michael G. Maurer, and Brian Benner, of Bloomingdale; Curtis H. Judy, and Steven Gamron, of Richmond; and James A. Schrecengost of Cortland.

Ohio Division of Wildlife (DOW) officials say they’ve filed more than 70 counts of illegally tagging and killing wild turkeys and white-tailed deer, over-harvesting deer and turkeys, spotlighting and shooting deer outside of the state’s hunting season and tagging deer in other hunters’ names. The investigation is continuing and DOW officials say more people are involved in the poaching operation. Additional charges are expected to be filed within the next few days.

Subject: MOSES SPEAKS
For 50 years, the Harvard Law School Forum has been sponsoring speeches by
luminaries ranging from Fidel Castro to Gerald Ford to Dr.Ruth.
Sometimes the speeches have generated a bit of media coverage, sometimes
not.  But one given last month by Charlton Heston has taken on a life of its
own.

Heston, the actor and conservative activist, delivered a stem-winder to about
200 listeners about "a cultural war that's about to hijack your birthright to
think and say what resides in your heart.   "He knew he was coming to a
liberal environment, and clearly a group of his listeners was conservative
and another was more liberal," said David Christopherson, president of the
forum.  "About half respectfully challenged him during the questions.  It
generated a lot of debate around the campus.  But what happened caught us
off-guard."

What happened was Rush Limbaugh's radio talk show.  On March 15, Limbaugh
read the entire speech on the air, only to find himself bombarded with
thousands of requests for a copy of it.  The same thing happened at Harvard
Law.  "We couldn't keep up with all the requests," said Mike Chmura at
Harvard.  "It really didn't have legs and might have been forgotten if Mr.
Limbaugh hadn't decided to deliver it."

'Winning the Cultural War'
Charlton Heston's Speech to the Harvard Law School Forum, Feb 16, 1999.

I remember my son when he was five, explaining to his kindergarten class
what his father did for a living. "My Daddy," he said, "pretends to be
people."  There have been quite a few of them. Prophets from the Old and New
Testaments, a couple of Christian saints, generals of various nationalities
and different centuries, several kings, three American presidents, a French
cardinal and two geniuses, including Michelangelo.  If you want the ceiling
repainted I'll do my best.  There always seem to be a lot of different...
Didn't really know where to post this guy, but I think it's rather unique. BTW, he didn't come to a whistle [:D]

Dang i have been sitting here waiting on someone to post about Art Lander's article in the sunday Herald Leader titled: "Cost of Nature, wildlife management areas examine user fee"!!!! Two of kentuckys largest wma's, central kentucky wma and western kentucky wma have a combined maintenance cost of more than $300,000 a year!!! LKS president " we don't think it's fair that hunters and fishermen should have to bear the entire cost of the upkeep and maintenance of state wildlife management areas." AMEN brother! make the horse back field trialers pay to mow Central. "licensed trappers, hunters, fisherman and boaters would be exempt....we know there are alot of issues that will need to be resolved" ....." the cost should be about the same as the cost of a fishing and hunting license, ballpark figure about $20"

this sounds fair to me! if out of state trialers can afford to trailer in 20 dogs to run in a field trial and pay entry fees they can pay a user fee to have the privelage of usage of "our" wma.

looking forward to hearing responses from the masses!
your friend forever----JIMMY NEUTRON
BTW I like the signs at Central!! hmmm wonder why those were put up???
