Archery hunters in Kentucky enjoy a generous deer season that opens in late summer and spans more than four months.
When it closed earlier this week, hunters had pushed the overall harvest past 130,000 for the third consecutive season and to Kentucky’s second-highest harvest total on record.
Archers played a big role in the success, arrowing more than 18,000 whitetails, and may be left wondering what to do next.
