Season opens tomorrow morning and looks to be a fairly decent day for hunting. Light rain expected in my area tomorrow clearing out by mid-morning with a high of 67. I'm not going to be able to hunt the morning, but I have a bachelor group of 9 buck that have been traveling together patterned pretty good. 3 of the buck are in the 140plus range. I have been glassing them with binos and they have been hitting the soy bean field between 1900-1930 like clockwork coming from the same bedding area and walking the field edge right past my stand location some 150 yards away. I haven't looked so forward to a opening day in a long time. Them big boys have got me losing sleep for two weeks now.

Anyways, I'll keep you all updated and good luck to all my fellow Kentuckians tomorrow and to anyone else who season opens up this weekend.

From the deer I have been watching they are in their typical mode right now, they are moving towards the fields to feed anytime after 4:00 PM. I am still seeing a few young deer with fading spots and since it has been so dry water is a good option to be around. Of course fruit tress are starting to drop fruit (apples & plums) and the deer are hitting those if you have any around. Other than that everything else seems as normal, I have not seen many acorns yet. My trees at home are not producing the crop they usually do but it's a little early still.

Johndeer, There is a shop up in Sunman IN named On Target, located on I-74 going towards Indy. They have a nice shop & sell ATVS along with hunting equipment. Take Route 1 up to I-74 & then go towards Indy, I think it is about 6 miles from where Rt. 1 meets I-74.

Mike Stenger is a really nice guy, you can't go wrong with him thats for sure! There used to be a shop up on Harrison Ave but I am not sure they are still there. Over here in No. KY about the only shop left is Marks Guns & they only sell Mathews. I think someone may have opened one up down in Dryridge but I havn't heard much.

I hunt a couple of small private farms in No. KY & then I have 2 farms in Eastern KY and I also have some land that joins the Daniel Boone National Forest in South Central KY. My brother also has a really nice farm I hunt on sometimes and I have plenty of family in the are & have tons of areas I could hunt. It's all in South Central KY as well. I mostly hunt close to home in No. KY, it's just easier with the family & kids. Next year I may start food plotting my land.
