Never Spring squirrel hunted. Do you find a lot of weevils or botfllyie


This is our first private dove field and I don't know how many days before our shoot I should that we should now our millet field? I was guessing 5-7 days. That should give them plenty of time to find it and feed for a bit to get a good shoot. What do you all do?

draw results came out Friday. i got another "sorry, license number ######## did not draw". my family is 0 for 19 this year and i just put us in 8 more times in Arizona.
Why do you hunt?
This is the absolute best insect repellent I have ever used. I have never picked up a chigger or deer tick when using this. It is hard to find. The guys at the phone company use it.
It appears that three wildlife commissioner positions are open for election by the sportsmen. 1st District with Terry Tietloff is one that is up for grabs and I want to talk about Vernon Anderson who is running for that position.

Vernon is a retiree from KDFWR and was involved in many of the positive actions for sportsmen while he was employed.

He h stood p or expanded hunting opportunites and against the corruption.

Hopefully he gets the votes ad then s chose by the Matt Bevin!
Anyone have any info on DIY Pronghorn hunting in Wyoming?

Ive seen this 3d die cut camo fabric for sale in stores. Anyone ever use it and how do you use it? What I mean is, do you attach it to some sort of wood stakes then set it up where you want to hunt? Just curious on ideas on how to use this material.
I lease all of farms out but 2. I've caught a lot of flack for that on here, and it doesn't bother me. We all do what we do, and I do that. Iniatially started, because I was tired of being taken advantage of by family and friends. Figured if I was going to have people on me, I might as well get paid for it. Any way, long story short that broke a lot of hearts, and upset a lot of people. The 2 farms I kept out were for my kids hunt (I don't personally hunt, but enjoy taking them). Caught a lot of flack on here for that to. I'm not a tree hugger, I just got too much to do to to have my own hobby. I'd rather take the kids. My kids have filled their turkey tags (Thanks to my wife's over zealous posting on Facebook, people know that). Well the phone starts ringing. A family member wants to take his daughter. Hard to say no, so I say yes. Ends up the boyfriend brings the daughter. Then the boyfriend comes without the daughter. This morning, him and a cab full of young men who are skipping school show up hunting. I've got food plots, I've got permanent blinds, I'm pretty invested in hunting (as most of you are). Really don't mind helping a young person, it's not like that at all. Just get so sick and tired of being ran over.
I was looking around at different turkey chokes. I was wondering if two chokes are the same internal diameter, would they preform the same?
Finally ready to ship...



Anyone? Would like to stay in the $200 range. Thanks.
Waste of time and money . I wonder how much they will raise with go fund me page .A dime would solve that problem

Just passing this on. I still got .22 from before the shortage when it was in the .014 a round range. But this is .066 a round and one of the better prices I have seen in a while.
More tales of the strange from California. Video at the link.

A Bear Climbed your Treestand, How would you React?

That?s Right, What if a bear climbed into your tree stand?

If you?re this brave hunter, you allow it to get just a few feet from you before reacting.

And, of course, you capture the whole incident on video because no one will believe you if you don?t.

I?ve never had a bear climb into my tree stand. Heck, I?ve never even seen a bear while in a tree stand.

I?d like to think I?d be as cool and calm as the hunter in this video, but I somehow doubt that would be possible. Adrenaline alone would probably send me over the edge. How about you?

Hello all Kentucky sportsman, I am looking to set up an exchange hunt with someone from the State of Kentucky in exchange for a Black Bear hunt in Nova Scotia. I am registered with the Province of Nova Scotia as a registered guide and my hunting/guiding experience has given me the opportunities to be part of some great hunts in different Provinces across Canada. Nova Scotia has a great fall season for Black Bear hunting, with a high percentage of success as we are allowed to use baited sites during the Black Bear season. If you are interested in trying this exchange hunt or can give me some suggestions on how this may work I would be open to comments and/or suggestions. I thank you in advance for considering and reading this post and again I would like some input regarding this exchange hunt. Cheers Trufire
I've caught these kinds of snakes before but I'm not sure what kind they are. Anyone know?

Silly Californians. They'll eat you too if you fall into a pen full of them...even if they're not feral. They'll eat everything.

A friend of mine called me all excited and said a local gun shop owner told him there was, or was gong to be, a state coyote bounty paid for each killed. The bounty payment was what made me really question this. He said the guy told him there would be $90.00 paid for each coyote. Have any of you heard this?

My question is with the new license being bought for this new season do we get a new HIP number? Or do we keep the one we got last year to put on the new license?

.....even though a lifetime member of B&C, i don't have a membership anymore to query the records, could someone look something up for me? thanks.
WTVF, channel 5, out of Nashville had an excellent piece on all the recent cougar sightings in the state. the TWRA acknowledged that cougars were in middle Tennessee, along with west Tennessee as well. There have been numerous sightings, both on trail cam and people seeing them. I have some friends in one of the counties cougars have been spotted in, and they told me that the game warden more or less told them that they think a breeding population has been established.
Hi - New to the Forum. Looking for any personal feedback on a reputable outfitter in Western Kentucky? My son is a senior this year and would like to take him on a deer hunt. He plays hockey so he has not been able to hunt in WI very much due to his schedule. Due to his hockey, I am looking at the early muzzleloader season. Any input on outfitters as well as if the early muzzleloader can be productive would be much appreciated.
I'm hoping were just a bit over a month out before the first blacks start showing up. Several getting the morel fever on social media I noticed. Last year was close to a bust. I'm shooting for 2,000 this spring and think I can get there if it's a decent year. My wife has already signed off for me to go a lot under the heading of cardiac rehab. Lol

Found 2-3 new spots while hunting I can hardly wait to get into and see if there are any there.
While doing some scouting on Saturday I pulled a complete set of keys out of the mudd. On the bass pro shop awards tag it had the name Aaron Cook. It also had a 2012 emblem on it with several ford and other keys on it. I know I can drop it off at kroger and they will send it to the owner(there was also a kroger card on it) but I would like to contact the person myself to get a story on where they lost them. I was in Taylorsville at the WMA.
Over the past year. Still into it with a group of horse people (about 25 of them) here in Muhlenberg wanting fish and wildlife to hand over several thousand acres of Peabody WMA for them to ride on year round anyplace at any time with not just horses but also ATV's and UTV's now. I would just like to have some numbers to throw out there as to how much money the sportsmen put into Peabody in the permit fee each year. As a lot of other groups they want things but on OPM (other peoples money) and not willing to stick their necks out to aquire the amount of money it would take to buy or lease the number of acres they feel they need. I gave them a heads up on a Lake Malone state park contact that was willing to work with them towards horse trails but that would require them to help maintain trails and do other upkeep but they are like talking to a brick wall when all they can see is the amount of land F&W has.
Hey guys. New to this forum and I have never hunted in KY but I am thinking about hunting Peabody next year. Any info would be great! Deer numbers high? Potential big bucks? Thanks again for any info.
Is there any place to get printed maps or are they only available online? My new printer isn't working yet. Thanks.
If one of those three is being a nuisance, can you kill them? I know coons have a season.
Cleaned and ready to be put up until next season.
Going to go to Elk Creek for the first time to shoot sporting clays. I shoot a 20 gauge over/under. I would like to hear from those of you who have shot there before, what choke configurations do you suggest? What is the average shot distance? Thanks
wheres the correct fourm room for looking for land leases etc ? Thanks in advance
Here you go coyote hunters.
Anybody using led lights for work/ reloading bench?
Would like to swap out 4-4 foot flourescent lights for LEDs
How do they compare ( lighting lumens, cost etc)?
Thanks for all input

We've had a lot of great threads.... what is your favorite memory, how old, etc.... But, just for fun, what is your favorite time frame hunting memory? Like, when you were a young lad, early teen, etc? For me, I think my favorite time was while in college. After one year of playing basketball in Juco, I transferred to WKU. For the next 4 years while in school, I deer hunted my arse off. Dad was still young, my uncle still hunted with us, as well as some of my favorite deer hunting buddies. We didn't kill any monsters, didn't really kill many bucks, but 82-86 were probably the most enjoyable years of deer hunting of my life.
on saturday january 2 i lost my best friend my hunting buddy the rock of my life my daddy he loved life to the fullest
loved to hunt fish and any thing outdoors he will be greatly missed every day love you daddy
I usually start looking for sheds the beginning of February for deer but have heard a lot of people talking about seeing deer that have already dropped.
I usually start looking the beginning of March for elk sheds. I guess it's getting time to break out the walking shoes.

Feb 6-14. if you haven't been, it's a pretty cool place to spend a day or two. everything and anything for hunting fishing. an entire wing of guns since the NRA took over. weekends are nuts, less crowded on weekdays.
Special thanks to loshbough hunting lodge for the awesome hunt, we had a blast
Seen this while hunting. There was several of them in a 10 foot area. They are hollow and are about 3 inches high.



Hi ladies and gents. I am an military recruiter moving to Rowan County in the next few months and was looking for some info on the hunting in the Rowan County area. I am looking forward of getting out of the swamps of the okefenokee seamp and into the hills of eastern Kentucky. Any info will be greatly appreciated.
