2009 Kentucky Deer Hunting Results  - Bow
 

The early September velvet hunt was for about 1 week. The next Kentucky deer hunt will be the October 3-day bow, 2-day powder combo (Oct. 14,15,16,17,18).

  • 3 misses on approximately 130" bucks
  • 1 velvet kill
  • Tough full moon conditions and temps
  • One hunter, Titus, that took this 10-pointer had the hunt of his life. He saw 20 bucks, 10 of which were matures, and ended up taking this 10-pointer. It was a low gut shot. The 9-year marine sniper trainer, Jason Mott, tracked the animal in a jungle of saplings and briars. The recovery of this animal was a pure display of a trained marine.

Second Week of September Bow

Info:  Double lung at 27 yards, little to no blood trail for 150 yards through 5 foot tall grass; then 100 yards of decent blood trail leading to no blood trail; then a speck or two for 50 yards to the dead 250 lb., 4 1/2 year old bruiser laying in 6ft. tall weed field.

Track time: 2 hours
Tracker: Jason Mott

Kenny's story: 2 matures came to the corn pile at 7:00 p.m. Heads of both matures were concealed by leaf cover, as planned by Snipe Creek's guides. Kenny was able to make an undetected draw and kept it together to double lung a wiry, wise, and old mature on his Kentucky Whitetail Hunt.

Chris - 41 years old, new to bow hunting, first bow kill

Info: Double lung at 30 yards. This is an example of how fast our Kentucky deer can reach 120 inches. Despite the huge body and impressive rack, this deer is just 2 1/2 years old. A very respectable first bow kill. Our woods/area is literally full of this caliber deer, representing a constant replaceable resource to our Kentucky Big Buck Hunt.

Chris' story: 2 Bucks on the bait station. The ample cover allowed Chris to take his first buck without detection.

Additionally, Chris followed up with a double lung shot to doe at 25 yards. Again undetected by leaf and branch concealment. Good job of "threading the needle."

Info: Hunting together, Scott double lunged this doe and Megan tracked it out. Lots of leaf and branch cover allowed them to be undetectable. Nice job with pushing an arrow through.

Scott also saw bucks - good shooter bucks sparring, but the light was just too dim, even at close range.

This is a post velvet hunt picture from a corn pile that we hunted 6 times during the velvet bow. It demonstrates the effectiveness of perimeter hunting for mature whitetails. It is an example of how not to pressure deer.

To the hunters that sat at this site - sorry that he didn't show up as planned!

To the October bow/powder hunters - he is all yours!

Kentucky Bow Hunting Style/Methods at Snipe Creek

  • Shooting windows will be perfect if you are a seasoned, mature whitetail hunter.
  • If you have limited stand hours/experience with a bow in your lap, then you will perceive our bow hunting sets to be a "little thick".
  • Our shooting windows are perfectly designed and will give you your best opportunity at getting a mature within 25 yards and then the cover to slice an arrow into his heart/lungs.
  • So if you lack stand hours and experience at hunting matures, then come and learn.
  • If you are an advanced deer/bow hunter, come and enjoy bow sets that will give you the confidence and ability to kill a mature Kentucky whitetail on a free-range deer hunt.
  • If you lack stand hours and are unwilling to learn/adapt to hunting mature whitetails, then continue to watch those bobbling heads elsewhere.

"Just wanted to drop a quick email to say 'thank you'. My wife and I had a wonderful time. You have quite the remarkable whitetail hunting operation...we had a wonderful time witnessing the large bucks of Kentucky."  ~Scott Siefert

This is what a 65-year old, lifetime whitetail hunter emailed me after his 3-day early September bow hunt...

"I will say again that your hunt/camp is one of the most professional I have seen, and even though I could not shoot a deer, it was a pleasure to be in camp. You will definitely see my son and I for the last week in October."   ~Neil Rapaduski
