This just in, Kentucky has just taken the top of the leader board for boone and crockett entries. No surprise to me, I have hunted here my whole life. I think there are many reasons that Kentucky has taken the top spot. #1 Kentucky is a one buck state, so all the locals wait on "THE" buck not any buck. This results in fewer two and three year olds being killed. That is the main thing a deer needs to reach trophy potential. #2 Our seasons open at the best times to kill a mature buck, archery opens the first saturday in september, this allows you to hunt mature bucks while they are in velvet and bachelor groups. They are still hitting consistant food sources so they are very easy to pattern. Our rifle season opens the second weekend in November, this just so happens to be the middle of our rut, not a bad time to be in the field with a rifle. These are just a few reasons. If you are interested in making a trip to Kentucky to try and put your tag on a Kentucky giant, please look me up.
