Being a life long resident of the Bluegrass state I share your concern but differ on opinion to a small degree. While I do hunt KY I try to hunt OH as much as I can. The regulations they have set forth has produced a great all around whitetail state. Maybe it's just me being selfish but I like the fact I don't have to share the rutting woods with the orange army. That's really not the point I'm trying to make. As the overall hunting culture evolved some form of trophy management is now being practiced just about everywhere. If you truly compare apples to apples KY was a late bloomer. After implementing the 1 buck rule 20 or so years ago we are just now reaching the trophy peak. What scares me is I saw what happened to OH, specifically Adams county. A few monsters were killed then and article was published in North American Whitetail titled "The other Bucks of Adams County". This temporarily changed the landscape. KY will weather the storm until the next great hot spot appears.If a fella with some common sense was wanting to find the next hotspot he'd be looking elsewhere instead of where the last few seasons have been productive. Keeping in mind not only hunting trends but potential along with the cycle of mother natures checks and balances i'd say Indiana is looking mighty good. :D

My neighbor has been telling me he'd bring me to family land outside Louisville.........I might have to take him up on the offer.
Assuming the out of state fees don't go Kansas crazy of course ;)
