"Success" is defined by the hunter and their happiness. If you shoot a buck that is undersized, I don't want to ruin your day by issuing a $50 per inch under penalty. We've all shot bucks we thought were bigger, so the $500 self-imposed penalty helps to deter those shooting basic 8 pointers we see all the time.
Deer hunting in Kentucky consists of Muzzleloading, crossbow, archery and gun season. Bow hunting season allows for hunters to get outdoors before the high-powered firearms get in the woods that can shoot a deer from 300 yards away. Archery people have to be much more careful with their equipment and clothing. Being scent-free and being mindful of the wind are very important tactical aspects of the hunt. Compound bows go over 300 feet per second, but still require skill to make a shot at 40 yards. Now, guys with high-end crossbows, zipping bolts out at over 400 feet per second, will take stabs at whitetail closer to the 60 yard range. That is pushing it, but some of these weapons are deadly accurate during Kentucky bow season.
Come mid-October, you can get out to a tower blind or tree stand with your muzzleloader and even stalk deer. The days of pouring in and measuring inaccurate black powder rifles are over. Harvesting a Kentucky trophy Whitetail has changing seasons. Check in with a Kentucky deer hunting forum website or call, email or text me your questions 270-766-7166.
No licence fees are required in later December for a Youth 2-day rifle hunt for trophy deer.
Modern gun season is just a fun time of year. Whoever comes with you on the Kentucky hunting lease, you all will have a great time. You’ll see deer and people within your camp will surely be harvesting bucks. Kentucky hunting outfitters are just ecstatic during this time of year. Strange bucks are running everywhere, trying to avoid these people who suddenly come out a week before deer season spreading corn everywhere. My place has regular good food within a variety of many food plots, so my property is a travel destination for all bucks, in my opinion vs. the seasonal corn spreaders.
The hunting rates and fees are pretty fair across the board. All Kentucky hunting packages include free basic cabin use. Pretend you’re camping with light and heat. It’s a “normal” cabin but no running water or indoor bathroom.
If you are the type who wants to hold outfitters accountable after they promise you the world, make sure you create a lot of texting and emailing dialogue. We are more than willing to put everything we say in writing, so don't put yourself in a position with the common mixups of "he said she said" claims. Get it in writing!
