  • Turkeys stay safe, away from hunter

    O.K. Score: Turkeys = several, me = zero. Oh, I saw birds, plenty of birds. But, they were either very young (small Jakes) or they hung up on me.
    Course the Jakes got to looking better the closer to season’s end it got. They also got wiser and the last week of the season even they started to hang up!

  • Turkey: Allen

    Jailyn Allen, age 8, killed her first turkey. It weighed 21.5-pounds, had a 9.5-inch beard and 1-inch spurs. She is the daughter of Joey and Gretta Allen of Lebanon.

  • Turkey: Brady

    Wesley Brady, son of Jimmy and Jeanna Brady of Loretto, got this 22-pound turkey with his papa Joe in Bradfordsville. It had a 10 ¼-inch beard and 1 ¼-inch spurs.

  • Turkey: Falls

    Hunter Falls, age 7, killed his first turkey in Taylor County on Sunday, April 6, 2013. His sister, MaCayla Falls, age 8, killed her turkey in Taylor County on Saturday, April 13, 2013.
     

  • 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.

  • 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.
