The Kentucky Early Primitive Weapons Season 2017 is in the can. No deer were harmed in the making of this weekend.However, we all seemed to have a good time.

This all started about 5 years ago. I was looking for a place for #3 son, Angus to have his first solo deer hunt. Angus did not want to bother with a treestand, and we had bumped into this spot while out squirrel hunting. For the last few years, Angus has hunted from here using … Continue reading
