    For hunters, it’s a day to rejoice.

    For the deer they’re trying to shoot? Not so much.

  • Skeet Shoot

    The Muldraugh Hill Baptist Church hosted a fish fry and men’s skeet shoot on Saturday at their church off of highway 289. Participants were invited to bring their favorite scattergun for the event.
     

  • ‘Sportsman’s Christmas’ arrives September 1

    The closer it gets, the more excited I get. So what is “it”? “It” is the Sportsman’s Christmas. “It” is what we dream of and practice for. “It” is the first of September; the “almost official” kick-off to the 2013 hunting seasons, to be specific, the opening of dove season!
    Coming up this Sunday, Sept. 1, we get to pursue doves.

  • Corps of Engineers issue warning about algal blooms at Green River Lake

    Boaters and swimmers at Green River Lake are urged to avoid contact with a blue-green algae that can produce toxins that can be particularly harmful to small children, people with illnesses and animals.

    The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers issued the warning. At this time, Green River Lake remains open for swimming and boating, but the algal cell count is a the cautionary level, based on World Health Organization guidelines.

  • Planning ahead for dove and squirrel seasons

     Last week I spoke of how, except for wild turkeys, most all our hunting seasons start on or after Sept. 1.

    I now stand corrected! Our 2013 squirrel season started last week. Early on during this season you can experience some things nature has to offer. You have the pre-dawn, you have a hicker nut tree, and you have a quarry.

  • Get ready: Dove season just around the corner

     It’s almost here! In about two and a half weeks it all starts. 

    So, what starts? Well, pretty much the 2014 hunting season, that’s what!

    I know, Sept. 1 seems to be fairly late in the year to start hunting. But think about it. We have dove, squirrel, rabbit, deer, ducks and geese, all starting in the fall, with dove coming first. About the only thing we can hunt any earlier in 2014 would be turkeys.

  • By request: Local small boat tournament coming soon

    I was recently asked if there was a tournament or tour for those who, either by choice or circumstance, fish from “small” boats.
    Small boats, as in 12-foot or less i.e. Jon boats, pond boats, kayaks, little pontoons, etc.
    Take your choice of brands or styles. The truth is that they’re 12 foot or less, the kind you can stick in the back of a full-size pickup truck. Ya don’t have to, but ya could!

  • Listen for the call of the elk

    Ever hear an elk bugle? Ever hear one bugle in Kentucky?

    If not, you can take a trip to Colorado, Wyoming, New Mexico or one of those “other” elk heavy states. Or, you can load up the family/friends and head to Eastern Kentucky!

    Elk, in Kentucky? Well, they are native to our state. But, they became extinct due to unregulated hunting and habitat encroachment, according to the experts.

    For whatever reason, they were gone for good!
