  • Fishing slob gets organized

    Big derby weekend coming up. For a lot of us this means “Derby parties.” Whether you have a horse to bet on, or just taking an opportunity to hang with some friends, please be safe!
    Along with the parties will be some alcohol consumption by many. I don’t pass judgment, as long as you’re of age. So, all I’ve got to say is if you drink don’t ruin a great time by driving!
    The turkey hunting has been on my back burner for the last week. Meetings, doctor visits and the weather sure cut into my hunting.

  • Runners and riders take to the streets

  • Turkey hunting tests patience

    Wandering through the woods in half-light, just enough to see where you were going, but not enough to illuminate the cobwebs. No problem, they didn’t taste all that bad.
    Hit the call and get an answering gobble. Quick, set the decoys, pick a big tree to place the seat by and wait. Another gobble. This was too easy!
    Unfortunately, ya can’t eat gobbles, ya eat gobblers!
    Wait a while, rearrange the decoys, do a little calling and … nothing.
    Finally, even die hard turkey hunters call it a day.

  • Lots of fishin’, huntin’ goin’ on

    Last weekend our youth had their shot (pun intended) at a spring turkey!
    Now, come April 13, it’s time for us big boys and girls to play. We have from this Saturday until May 5 to do our spring thing. That’s 23 days of gobbler chasin’ coming up!

  • Weekend offers hunting and fishing fun

    Coming up this weekend are several activities to keep anyone entertained!
    For the hunter, we have the spring youth wild turkey weekend coming up on April 6-7.
    Some things to keep in mind: Make sure the youth has a gun that fits. Pattern your gun at 25 to 30 and aim where the birds’ neck meets his body. If possible use a full blind, if you don’t have a full blind back up to a tree trunk/brush and don’t move (it’s said a turkey can see a blink)! Don’t over-call and wait for your bird to come to you, which could take a while.

  • Bass Anglers have gone fishin’

    We had our first Mid-KY Bass Anglers tournament last Saturday. Originally scheduled for March 24, we moved it to March 23 due to the bad weather forecast for Sunday.

  • Coyote season coming to Kentucky

    To start, congratulations to the MCHS girls basketball team on a great year … you were perfect!
    So what’s coming up? Well, for the hunters we have our spring turkey season. For our youth hunters, the season runs April 6-7. Everyone else can turkey hunt April 13 through May 5. Limit is one per day, two per season no matter how you take them. As an example: I plan on taking one bird with my shotgun and one with my crossbow … total of two.

  • The 2013 fishing season is near

    The first bass tournament of the season is coming up in a few weeks on March 24, but it’s time to get ready. Come the Cabin Fever Open on Fagan Branch we’ll all be ready or at least should be ready.

  • Get your ammunition, your license and outdoors

    Last week I forgot to mention who we booked our Snow Goose hunt with. We booked with Premier Flight Guide Service and they can be reached at www.goosegrinders.com.
    Please understand, our lack of success was in no way the fault of Premier Flight or our guides. It was just some very crappy luck!

  • More from goose hunt

    Our Arkansas snow goose hunt was too much to be covered in one article. So, this week I’ll finish up on our adventure.
    Now in order to catch up with the story, get a copy of last week’s paper and read it!
