Hi everyone, and welcome to our first report. First let me tell you a little about the site. This page will be updated as much as possible to keep you up to date on what is going on in the woods and waterways in Kentucky. Also we will be posting stories and events of interest to the outdoors enthusiast. We would appreciate any comments and suggestions that you may have. As I write this, squirrel season has already opened, and from my trips to the Ky. river, and what I hear from those that are going, the squirrel population is way up and the harvest is good. I am more of a late season squirrel hunter, as I tend to spend these late summer days tuning my archery skills and worryin' over the catfish and bluegill! I have spent a great deal of time on the Ky. river between locks 10-11 this summer, and it seems the fishing there has been good to excellent all year. With Deer archery season less than 4 weeks away we should already be honing our skills and tuning our bow. Remember if you need a new string or arrows, don't put it off til the last minute. The arhery shops will be swamped with last minute repairs and orders that may leave you unprepared. With a new hunting season upon us there are far to many new regulations to list them all. The biggest changes in Deer hunting will be that all of Kentucky is now only 4 zones. There also will be unlimited doe harvest in zone 1(2 tags $10). Zones 1 and 2 have been extended to 16 days, with the last 6 days being antlerless only. Also, be aware that the definition of ANTLERED Deer has been changed to say if the Deer has polished visible bone, it MUST be tagged as antlered! Well, I have only scratched the surface of all the new laws and regulations, so please visit the Ky Dept. Of Fish & Wildlife to read it all. I have provided a link to their site on the links page. In the very near future I will be posting your photo's,if you send a photo for posting, please send a self addressed envelope if you would like your photo returned. The address is on our contact page, or if you have a scanner, just e-mail it to: Well, i'm goin' fishing. Til next time, have a safe trip!
