Outdoors with Big Country – I’d Rather be Hunting

outdoors 01KENTUCKY (11/28/12) – I’d rather be hunting! How many times have you heard this line? It’s always on my mind. If I’m not hunting, I’m thinking about hunting!

 
This is a great time to be an outdoorsman. December, in itself, is a great time to be a hunter. There are so many hunting seasons in this time that it’s often difficult to make a decision on what to actually hunt for on any given day.
 
One example is the country’s most sought after animal, the Whitetail Deer. The Kentucky Firearm season has ended and more than likely has seen another banner year across the state on Trophy class bucks. We still have bow season and muzzle loader season to look forward to in December. Also, the first weekend in December marks the winter season for Fall Turkey in Kentucky. The second weekend starts out as Kentucky’s Muzzleloader season, which entails trying to fill that buck tag that you have left over from the prior deer season.
 
Also, there is rabbit season, squirrel season, quail season, and bobcat season. Also, I truly hope everyone will take a chance at coyote hunting. This is open year round, but one needs to be a licensed hunter to be legal out there. There are no limits on coyotes. I strongly urge you to take advantage of that opportunity if possible.
 
There is also another season open during this time. It’s waterfowl season all throughout December. With a little luck, some cold fronts and snow up north may push the ducks and geese into the Kentucky area.
 
There is so much to choose from in the outdoors this time of year. No one should be sitting at home wondering what to do on their off days. I would really like to see everyone get involved in the great outdoors one way or the other and try to get others involved, teaching them the proper safety techniques of hunting and fishing.
 
With the Christmas season coming up very fast with limited days to be in the outdoors, between working and shopping, it is important to make the best of your time afield and enjoy every moment, making memories to last for a lifetime. Whatever your choice may be, be safe and success will follow.
 
Also, don’t forget that on some of these warmer days that if you aren’t hunting, there is always the option to go fishing.
 
Until next week, I wish you the best of luck and good hunting to all of the best outdoorsmen and women in the country. I’ll see you in the woods or on the water.
