  1. One more year.

    Thanks Deerman, But not until 5:00 pm.
  2. One more year.

    The last ticket was sold on Feb. 10th, 2012 to a sportsman in CT. There were 6 tickets purchased as a result of our post on ShowMeOutdoors.com. We are sincerely grateful. We could not do what we do without the help of sites such as this one. Many thanks to MoHuntress for allowing our post and the best of luck to all that have entered. I will post the name, city, and state of the winner in April and later, our financial report to let everyone know where the money goes. Thanks again.Yours in conservation, Robert Smith, N. Ky.

  3. Coyotes and why I kill um.

    I totally agree Killmode, Either sick or as you can see, still in velvet. Would have been an awesome buck though.
  4. One more year.

    Well, the holidays have come and gone and we have one more year under our belts. Time to get back to work. I hope that 2012 is everyone\'s best year ever. Our Commission Bull Elk Tag fundraiser is doing well (see post in Giveaways and Contests) and it looks like we will meet our goal of selling all 200 tickets. All of the proceeds go right back into conservation. We have tickets still available if you are interested. Just send me a U2U or email and I will get full information to you. Many thanks to Mohuntress and ShoMeOutdoors.com. We could not do what we do without sites such as this one.Yours in conservation, Robert Smith, N. Ky.

  5. The only good coyote is a dead coyote. The link below has been around and is very graphic. It is from someone\'s trail cam. Kill um all.http://www.pensacolafishingforum.com/f48/why-you-kill-coyotes-102774/

  7. I would like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. We here in Kentucky have lots to be thankful for. Many thanks to those who have helped our QU Chapter make our Bull Elk Tag raffle a great success. To all the states which helped make our herd what it is today. Over 12,000 and growing. We have come a long way since 1997. Many thanks to all.Yours in conservation, Robert Smith, N. Ky.

  8. Hi everyone, I have been getting a lot of questions about our Commission Bull Elk Tag; (see post by mohuntress in contests and giveaways) how much land (public) there is to hunt in Kentucky and what are my chances of a successful hunt. Hope the below will answer some of the questions.The Commission Bull Elk tag is good in any zone, which means, \"In Zone or \"Out of Zone\". It is good in any EHU. It is good for any legal weapon during that weapons portion of the season. The only thing required is a non-resident hunting license. All elk permit fees ($365.00 non-resident) have been waived by KDFWR. The 16-county elk restoration zone is 4.1 million acres, and is divided into 10 Elk Hunting Units, including sub-units, with a total of 576,994 acres open to public hunting. The EHUs have been established to manage the elk herd, spread out hunting pressure, and provide hunters with a high chance of success. There were 800 tags issued in the 2010 season and there was an 80% success rate. 800 tags were also issued for the 2011 season but success numbers have not been posted yet.If you should have further questions, please don\'t hesitate to contact me.Yours in conservation, Robert Smith, N. Ky. Chapter #481 Quail Unlimitedthekysportsman@hughes.net
