  • Healthy, robust herd awaits as...

    By Kevin Kelly, Ky. Dept. of Fish & Wildlife Resources

    Shredded bark on saplings, fresh scrapes along old logging trails and trail camera snapshots of passing bucks are encouraging signs that deer activity is picking up across Kentucky and just in time.

    The statewide modern firearm deer season opens Nov. 12 this year. Arguably the most widely anticipated of the fall hunting opportunities, it’s structured to coincide with the peak of fall breeding, known as the rut.

  • Wildland fires, dry conditions...

    More than 300,000 Kentucky hunters preparing for this weekend’s modern gun deer season opener should be aware there are at least 22 wildland fires burning, many in southeast Kentucky, as drought conditions persist across the state. About 14,000 acres have burned in the Commonwealth since Oct. 29.

    Gov. Matt Bevin declared a statewide emergency last week and urged all citizens to refrain from outdoor burning and use extreme caution during outdoor activities.

  • Bullitt Central advances past...

    The high school football season came to an end for Anderson County Friday night when Bullitt Central claimed a 31-24 overtime win in the opening round of the Class 5A playoffs at Bob Ware Field.

    Bullitt Central scored on the second play of overtime as Davin Gray went 12 yards on an end around to put the Cougars in front in the overtime.

  • Mistakes doom Bearcats at Collins

    SHELBYVILLE – When seeing the final count of Collins’ 41-21 win over Anderson County Friday night, it would be hard to fathom that at halftime, it was a 10-7 football game.

  • ‘100 percent in awe’

    It’s doubtful that Will Shouse thought he would ever be sitting in one of the best seats in the house to see the Kentucky Wildcats play basketball in Rupp Arena.

    “I’m a huge UK fan,” Shouse says. “I am very supportive of (Coach John Calipari) and his methods.”

    Sunday night, Shouse won’t have a seat near the floor. He’ll be on the floor as the Wildcats host Asbury University in their final tune-up for the regular season.

  • The Cann-do attitude

    LEXINGTON – Makenzie Cann is ready.

    Ready to shoot 3-pointers. Ready to pass. Ready to rebound.

    She’s even ready to play defense.

    She’s ready and willing to do anything to get back on the basketball court for the Kentucky Wildcats’ women’s basketball team.

    That moment comes Thursday, Nov. 3 when the Wildcats take on Union University of Tennessee in an exhibition game at Memorial Coliseum. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m.

  • UK Women single game, NCAA...

    The University of Kentucky women’s basketball team will play an 18-game home schedule this season and although season tickets are still available, fans can purchase single-game tickets through ticketmaster.com.

    Although lower level chairbacks are sold out again this season, upper level chairback, lower level bleachers and general admission upper level bleachers are all available for $65 per seat. Purchasing season tickets offers the best option and price savings for fans.

  • Back by popular demand: Bearcat...

    Expectations are high for Anderson County basketball in 2016-17. The Bearcats are tabbed by many as the team to beat in the Eighth Region after a run to the regional championship game last March.

    Veteran coach Glen Drury, who won his 500th career game last year, and Bearcat fans are itching for a Sweet 16 trip in March.

    The Lady Bearcats are also considered one of the top teams in the Eighth.

    You can get a glimpse of the Bearcats and Lady Bearcats at Cat Madness on Nov. 19.
