girl fishing 500

KENTUCKY (11/14/12) – Hello again folks. I hope you are having a blessed day. We had a beautiful weekend with temps in the 70’s, but it was very disappointing for local deer hunters.

Due to the high temps, the deer stayed mostly nocturnal. Personally, I did spend the day at White City talking with the campers and sharing God’s word, and I always give them a gift to take back. I have made some awesome friendships down there, over the years.
 
This year it was a little disappointing to not see one particular elderly gentlemen. He was home taking care of his wife.
 
People come from Florida and Louisiana to hunt the giants of Western Kentucky. One of the campers was a 15-year-old boy hunting and camping with his parents. He laid down a nice ten point buck while visiting this weekend.
 
I was humbled when one of my good friends told me that I made their trip down there worth while. His whole family comes in every year. Everyone was waiting on the rain to stop by dinner so they could hunt for the rest of the day.
 
The temperatures have fallen into freezing levels during the evenings and the morning hours. The later part of the week, and this weekend, should offer some great hunting opportunities.
 
My son and I will be hunting a quota hunt this weekend down on the Western Kentucky Wildlife Management Area. It is located west of Paducah along the Ohio River. We will be hunting the Ohio River bottoms giant deer of Western Kentucky. There are a lot of huge bucks in the area, but we must overcome one obstacle. We must lay down our rifles and pick up our Muzzle Loaders or Shotguns. We have decided to hunt with our shotguns.

I will be using my Maverick 12-guage pump and will be shooting with Remington slugs. Dustin, my son, will be shooting his single shot Bakail and shooting Winchester slugs. We have shot these guns and feel comfortable using them for 75-100 yard shots. We are going to be in the big timbers, so that should cover our distance.
 
I have studied the properties through Google mapping. You should try it one time.
 
I hope everyone has a great weekend of hunting. Until next week, God bless and be safe!
 
This week’s article is dedicated to my Great Uncle Harvey Miller. He went to be with the Lord this week. He was an avid outdoorsman from White Plains Ky. I am blessed to have been passed down from generation to generation the tradition of hunting, fishing, and enjoying God's great Outdoors. Rest in peace Uncle Harvey!
