Kentucky sure is looking good.
That's awesome. I have a feeling Kentucky is one of those sleeper states.
For now then in a couple years we will be reading how their are no deer.
Kentucky (at least where we live) has some BEAUTIFUL bucks... however, we haven't seen a whole lot of them. From my experience, there are less deer in this area (than PA or WV), but they are better quality animals--even the does are HUGE!. Based on what we've observed living on our new place, the secret will be managing the herd carefully. We have 3 hunters in our family (and a 4th one showing interest) so we have decided to put limits on ourselves. We kill only what we need to fill the freezer then we are D-O-N-E...no matter what! Also, depending on who it is and that persons capabilities, we are limiting ourselves to our compounds (our youngest will get to use the crossbow next year).
We're REALLY excited that God brought us to Kentucky and we look forward to seeing what future years bring to pass if we manage ourselves properly.
Kentucky is booming, yet Tennessee can't seem to get it figured out. Incredibly high bag limits are taking their toll in areas of Tennessee. Mainly
The East. In my county, if you killed every doe you had the opportunity to have a tag for, you could kill 10. This year they dropped the buck limit from 3 to 2 which may help some.
I like killing a doe or two but I would love to see that reduced some. Parts of middle and western Tennessee, you can kill 3 does per day, every day of deer season

Dang the secret is out lol we plan on going next sept. DIY hunt(velvet hunt)
KY was a sleeper 5 years ago, now it's just the place people haven't figured out how to hunt, they will. We didn't even hunt our KY lease this year. Our Ohio lease was hot even though it didn't yield any results with the short time we had to hunt.
KY has some nice elk, it doesn't surprise me they have a good deer herd.
