2013 Western Kentucky Outdoors Trophy Buck Hunts

Archery, Crossbow, Muzzleloader, Rifle


Western Kentucky Outdoors Trophy Kentucky Deer hunts for 2013 are listed below.

Western Kentucky Outdoors hunts several farms across three different counties. Having a number of properties allows us to spread out and reduce hunting pressure. This also allows us to take advantage of certain activities and patterns several times a year. A perfect example is being able to hunt a "Fresh" harvested corn field pattern multiple times from mid to late September until mid to late October.

Having land in one location and limited sources of agriculture does not support this. Same goes for soy beans. Plantings can be staggered so bean fields remain green and active well into September which has proved great success for us and accounted for putting double digit numbers of bucks in the P&Y book. Having multiple properties also affords us the ability to hunt certain properties of the morning and others during the afternoons.


September 2013 Kentucky Deer Hunts

The early archery season provides some great hunting on bucks that have been patterned and have not been pressured.

September Opening Weekend - 2013 Archery Opening day has not been set. This can be a 4-day hunt at the rate of $700 or a 3-day hunt for $600. We will only book 4 Archers for this hunt. If you choose this hunt you will be hunting one of the earliest seasons in the country. Bowhunt Kentucky for P&Y class bucks at a time when they could still be in full velvet. The first 2 weeks of the season is your best chance at taking a buck in full velvet and we suggest anyone wanting a buck in velvet choose this hunt for their best opportunity. A $300 non-refundable deposit is required to hold your hunt dates. Balance is due before your first day of hunting.

September 13-14-15-16th - This is scheduled as a 3-day hunt at the rate of $600. This can be a 4-day hunt at the rate of $700. You will be hunting early season P&Y class bucks that are feeding on soybeans of Western Kentucky. We will have these bucks patterned and stands in place. Due to high temps, this hunt mostly involves hunting the first few hours of daylight and last light of the day. Bring your Thermacell. Generally we see the deer changing food sources as we get into late Sept. along with their daily patterns. A $300 non-refundable deposit is required to hold your hunt dates. Balance is due before going afield for your first day of hunting.

 


October 2013 Kentucky Deer Hunts

October 12th/13th- Youth Firearm Hunt - This is a 2-day season and costs $400. Unlike most Outfitters we do not charge for an extra person being afield with their Youth. We welcome it. This hunt is geared to Youth just getting started in hunting and covers the 2-day hunt for 1 Youth. This hunt involves setups in high traveled areas that almost guarantee deer movement. This is not a doe only hunt. However, this is a hunt that is setup to provide an eventful day afield while providing your youth hunter the chance to harvest a deer, which means it is more probable that a doe will be taken. A $200 non-refundable deposit is required to hold your hunt dates. Balance is due before your first day of hunting takes place.

October 19th/20th- Early 2-day Muzzleloader Hunt - Come take advantage of the early Muzzleloader season here in Kentucky. Typically the 3rd weekend in October, this is when many of our bucks begin making rubs and scrapes visible in our hunting areas. Hunting rub lines can be very successful, as well as hunt can be very successful, as well as hunting food sources and prime bedding/feeding travel areas. Light rattling can also be productive at this time of the year and the use of grunt tubes. This is a 2-day season/hunt and is $500 for the hunt. A $250 non-refundable deposit is required to hold your hunt dates. Balance is due before going afield for your first day of hunting.

October 25-26-27-28-29th - This is hunt can be 3-5 days. A 3-day hunt is $650, 3 1/2 day hunt is $750, 4-day $800 or 5-day is $1,000. If you are a bow hunter this is a great time to be in the woods in Western Kentucky. Each and every year the beginning of our rut starts to take shape during this time. Trophy Bucks become more active and begin making making rubs, scrapes, responding to grunting, doe bleats and rattling can be affective during this time as well. Warm weather can take its toll, but here at WKO we traditionally see good action during this time of the year. A $300 non-refundable deposit is required to hold your dates. Balance is due before for your first day of hunting.


November 2013 Kentucky Archery Deer Hunts

November 1-2-3-4-5th- Any 3-day hunt during this period is at the rate of $750 or $1,000 for the 4-day hunt or $1,250 for a 5-day hunt. These hunts proceed our State firearm opener. This time typically covers some of the better rut action here in Kentucky. A lot of chasing usually takes place during this week, as well as, some breeding. Bucks are more active by the day. They are cruising for does, making rubs, checking scrapes and responding to calls. This period supports success by calling, with rattling and decoying. Arguably this is one of the best times to arrow a trophy buck in our opinion. A $300 or $400 non-refundable deposit is required to hold your dates. Balance is due before your first day of hunting.


November 2013 Kentucky Rifle Deer Hunts

*** We only hunt the first 10 days of the Kentucky Firearm Season.

*** We limit the number of hunts we book.

*** Limiting hunts helps control pressure.

*** Limiting pressure supports better hunts not only for rifle season but also for our late archery hunters and the late Muzzleloader season in December.

November 9-10-11-12th - This can be a 3 or 4 day hunt. The 3-day hunt is $950. If booking allows you can make this a 4-day hunt (12th-15th) for $1200. Experience the opportunity to firearm hunt during the peak of the rut here in Kentucky. We will set expectations for the area you are hunting and be able to provide specific information about bucks you should look for. Our firearm hunts are very limited and we suggest booking early. A $450 non-refundable deposit is required to hold your dates. Balance is due before your first day of hunting.

November 14-15-16-17th - This is a 3 day hunt or it can be made into a 4 day hunt. The 3-day hunt is $950. If booking allows you can make this a 4-day hunt (17th-20th) for $1200. We experience some of the best hunting mid-season and have always seen good bucks taken.

With having multiple farms pressure has been spread out on previous hunts. In most cases we will have farms that have not seen any hunting. As we get into day 8, 9 and 10 of the Kentucky rifle season many bucks are cruising trying to find a hot doe. Our expectation of this hunt is no different than the others. We plan to attract and hold does on our properties during November to promote buck activity. We also limit our firearm hunts so we are not over-hunting. We will set expectations for the area you are hunting and be able to provide specific information about bucks you should look for. Our firearms hunts are very limited and we suggest booking early. A $450 non-refundable deposit is required to hold your dates. Balance is due before your first day of hunting.

 


December 2013 Kentucky Deer Hunts

December 14-22nd - This is a 9-day Kentucky Muzzleloader season. There is no restriction on Muzzleloading equipment at this time. Scopes, In-lines, and smokeless powder are legal. A 3-day hunt runs $600. Most years we will see a 2nd rut during this time. What this means is you have a chance of catching bucks trailing does and checking areas that does are feeding/bedding trying to find a doe coming back into heat for a second time. This time of the year can be very cold, rainy and windy. Food sources will be an important part of our setups if cold weather greets us. Hunting will be conducted early mornings and in the afternoons. A $300non-refundable deposit is required to hold your dates. Balance is due before going afield for your first day of hunting.


December/January Archery Hunts - We consider the late season anything after the December Muzzleloader season. Any 3-day archery hunt during this time is $450. This hunt isn't cheap because it's a bad hunt. We just understand bow hunting and know after pressure from the rifle season hunting gets tougher. The woods are open, temps are usually cold and the weather can be pretty harsh. Most deer are just trying to feed and keeping out of the elements. We will continue to harvest deer right on up until the last day of season. We see our lowest success on bucks on this hunt, but the potential is there to tag a great buck. Most bucks are focusing on feeding if they are not laid up. We will hunt tight to bedding areas or food sources. Both these tactics will give you the greatest chance at harvesting a late season buck. A $250 non-refundable deposit is required to hold your dates. Balance is due before going afield for your first day of hunting.
