Frankly, I don't know.  However, I do know how to find out.  Post this question over at KentuckyHunting.net.  They'll have lots of ideas. Tell them the shaman sent you.  Off hand, I'd say the most common suggestion will be Land Between the Lakes. 

The reasons I don't know are manifold.  For starters, I've been concentrating on my own plot in SW Bracken County for going on 10 seasons.  The last time I hunted public land in KY was 2000.  Secondly, big bucks have habits that cause them to be hard to predict.  When I see a big rack out roaming about, I can figure he's got a home range that takes up about half of my county and probably a good part of the next one over.  Third, WMA's are somewhat crowded in KY, at least to my taste.  It's going to be hard to say exactly why a monster is going to want to stick around that sort of pressure and not squirt out into the surrounding land.

Here's another resource for you:

hey thanks for the reply. i was just thinking of trying to hunt west ky. public land would be easy to hunt because you don't have to ask anyone to hunt. i would like to hunt close to illinois, but you go were the deer are.i have a ky hunting guide and do you know where all the big bucks are killed.is it private or public land.i have always wanted to kill a 140 -150 buck. it does have to be 200 class.what kind of plot do you have. i plant shot plot it didn't do any good.

I have 200 acres in SW Bracken County. 40 acres is in hay. Probably about 5 is in food plots, mostly clover.  This year?  Color it brown and down-- everything is parched.  I was supposed to have 1-2 acres plowed up and planted this year, but he guy never showed up.  It would have been a wasted if he did.   The clover?   It's dirt.  If we get rain, it'll spring back to life and if it stays warm, it'll grow enough to be effective for rifle season.

My food plots this year were also all a bust. Planted a little over 4 acres and never got the rain I was needing. Thank god we had a tremendous acorn crop this year.
