  • Getting Ready!
  • Choosing your first shotgun...

    My first shotgun was an old .410-gauge Mossberg with a bolt action and pistol grip that once belonged to my grandmother. A decent squirrel gun, yet working the bolt to get off three shots at incoming doves was nearly impossible for me when excited. Doves flying nearby had little to fear when I shouldered that old .410.

  • Practice safety at the shooting...

    The cooler temperatures and lower humidity that spread across Kentucky recently made it feel more like early fall than the dog days of summer.

    Fall hunting season seems closer with a crispness in the air. And in reality, it isn’t far off. Early fall squirrel season in Kentucky opens soon.

    Spending time at the shooting range now not only is fun but it’s also a surefire way to ensure you’ll be ready when it counts this fall.

  • Dedication of Kentucky River WMA...

    From staff reports

    The Kentucky River Wildlife Management Area’s newest tract will open in Henry County with a dedication Friday, Aug. 15, according to a news release.

    The department completed its 18-month-long effort to acquire the 926-acre Stephen Boone property on June 2 and made it a priority to get the new area ready for use by hunters and anglers in time for the Aug. 16 opening of squirrel season.

  • Live, from Lawrenceburg, it...
  • Cordia mess a time to look at...

    Kudos to the Kentucky High School Athletic Association for its action against Cordia last week.

    In case you missed it – and if you were even remotely following sports in Kentucky last week, there is no way you could have – the governing body for high school sports in Kentucky laid down the law to Cordia last week.

    It wasn’t just a talking to or a slap of the wrist.

    It was a good old-fashioned razor strap whipping with a long probation following.

  • Good fall squirrel season...

    Generations of hunters have honed basic hunting skills and techniques and provided tasty table fare by stalking the forest for squirrels.

    For a young Chris Garland, squirrel hunting provided a gateway into the woods and remains a family tradition.

  • HIGH SCHOOL SOCCER: Lady Cats...

    The Anderson County High School girls’ soccer team earned a pair of wins in the Blue Grass State Games, defeating Henry County and Rowan County on July 26. Two more games, scheduled for July 27, were canceled due to the torrential rains that moved through the Lexington area.

    The games do not count in the regular-season standings, but teams often use them as an opportunity to scrimmage against live opponents.

    Against Henry, the Lady Bearcats took a 3-1 win as senior Claire Prater and freshmen Taylor Harley and Kinzie Roberts all scored.
