Home from a Good Ky Hunt

Postby eggshell » December 5th, 2011, 5:42 pm

We went down for the second segment of Kentucky's fall gun season Saturday and returned today. We got into a lot of birds, but mostly flocks of old hens and they were tough. I finally killed two adult hens and my buddy killed one. It was a blast though as they called and fought all day long. We would just follow them around and try to get set ups. My second bird I just got frustrated and commando rushed the flock and shot one on the bust. we had busted three flocks and only got one returning bird. Still a lot of fun. I'd like to get a crossbow hunt in in December down there, but more than likely I'm done until March and my Florida Osceola Hunt, Kentucky spring and Ohio in April.

Sorry now pictures as I loaned my camera out this weekend.

Congratulations on the hunt Dana. Sounds like a challenging hunt but a lot of fun.

Congrats Eggshell, sounds like you had a good weekend. I wish I could have gone but unfortunately I had to work. Then Monday we got 5" of rain and everything is flooded. Hopefully this afternoon I can get the 4 wheeler out and get back there to them.
Is it turkey season yet?

Hey Ron, was you able to make it down here this fall? If so, did you have any luck?
