    WMAs Advice

    Anyone have any advice on hunting the WMAs in Kentucky? I'm looking for somewhere to hunt a bit closer to Louisville(I normally have to make the trek to Bracken county).

    Anyone have any success at Taylorsville Lake? Kentucky River?

    Might want to give yellowbank a look. Not a bad drive. I assume deer is your target?

    Yep, but if a turkey happens across my stand I'd take him.

    Am I reading the information right, can you only hunt the WMAs in the bluegrass region Monday-Thursday in the early archery season?

    The only ones I have experience with are The Sloughs in Henderson Co. and Higgins and Henry in Union Co. Some absolutely giants on The Sloughs WMA.

    I've hunted several over the years, not too many as of late.

    My best advice, never, ever leave anything you can't afford to lose, arrive earlier than you planned to insure your spot is solid, be prepared for yahoo's to walk right dead through your zone...much later in the day than you would.

    Well I just went for a quick walk around Taylorsville lake, in just an hour in the woods I saw two deer and plenty of sign.

    I walked a creek bed that ran parallel to an overgrown field that was maybe 30 yards away through woods. It seemed like a pretty solid funnel.

    I also got a chance to talk to a game warden and he suggested headed into that gigantic briar ridge track of land, which by itself looks like 6000 acres.
