TODAY's News from the Porch:

Update: 10.1.14 - The forecast ahead shows fall in the air at least for the first weekend of October. A cold front will bring some rain over the next day or two followed by what looks like our first dip into the 30's at night on Saturday. Recent scouting continues to show most activity is on acorns. We have seen some activity on cut corn as well in the evenings, but the staging is on acorns and morning feed prior to bedding as well. To no surprise white oaks win out over other variety if they are available. Food plots are active as well, but the consistency isn't there at this time. Outside of a projected wind we like what we are seeing for the upcoming weekend.

9.24.14 - We are about 10 days away from our next deer hunt. The weather has been fall like this week as temps dropped into the 40's last night and approached 80 during the day. We'll see more typical September temps this weekend with warmer nights and 80's during the day before we see rain early next week.

We are seeing corn cut more and more each day which is good to see. It reduces cover and always creates activity on the fresh cut fields from deer, turkey, geese, ducks, etc. The combines are a big dinner bell and can pull deer from miles away. Even with cut corn, acorns if available are #1 when it comes to food source.

October will be as busy month as we start the month out with a archery hunt. We follow that by a 2-day Youth rifle hunt and a week later the states 2 day Muzzleloader hunt opens on the 18th. A week later our first fall shotgun turkey segment opens on the 25th not to mention as we get into the latter part of October pre-rut kicks in and we begin to see more and more buck activity happening as we get closer and closer to November. By about the 25th of October we start getting into some good bowhunting that will continue well into November.

9.16.14 - By all accounts, hunters and guides alike, the opener was disappointing. Buck activity was slow during daylight with only a few shooter class bucks seen out of range. Acorns dropping probably had the biggest impact with the moon becoming bright a close second. Either way the operner ended without an arrow taking flight and connecting with a buck.

The early wood duck and teal season opens tomorrow morning with wood duck closing on 9/21 and teal continuing on for a few days later. Kentucky is a brood state for a large population of wood ducks and they call Kentucky home. Teal on the other hand migrate through and can be hit or miss during the short season. Blue-wing make up most of the harvest, with a few Greens and an occassional Cinnamon found. Look for results from these hunts later this week or early next.

9.3.14 - The time is finally here. Three more sunrises and we'll have first shooting light. After 4 days of rain we had a clearing today. Cooler temps are suppose to prevail this weekend as well which should play into the hunts favor. Some of the bucks are losing velvet, but the majority are still packing as of today. We are seeing some transition occur as some red oaks are falling and we have seen some evidence of traffic in standing corn, which we do have some that is probably ready to be cut, short of the moisture we just received the last few days. We're still seeing many of the bucks on the same patterns their frequency has just changed up some, which isn't uncommon this time of year.

As a reminder we've had a couple cancellations for early November archery, so if interested drop us an email or call.

8.29.14 - We hope everyone enjoys the long weekend and wish everyone a safe one at that. If you are in the woods or on the water, get a kid involved if you can. And as always, think Safety First.

8.27.14 - In past years Labor Day weekend marked the Archery opener with the "First Saturday in September" being the opener. With the Calender swing a couple years back it will be a couple years before we get back to that true early opening, but as of today we are 10 days out from the September 6th opening. Over the next week we could see some bucks start shedding some velvet, but with a little luck they will pack it into the opening week and we'll see a velvet buck or two hit the ground. For you guys rolling in next week, better make sure the bows are dialed in. Until we get to about this time next week will we truly know what we can expect out of the temperatures and possible weather patterns.

Thanks for the calls and emails about hunt availability, our waterfowl hunting and fall turkey hunts. We will have all emails and voice messages caught up by the end of today. As we move closer to the season it can take us a few days to respond.
