Knowledge About Hunting Ky Matures
- My KY Deer hunt plan is simple Hunt
the matures when you have a chance to see
- There are several days in western KY
that are not good to hunt matures!
- Three (3) specific, short periods of time
are best to see and get a shot on a big
- Call me and I will share the knowledge.
I do not hunt on deadĚ dates that only
tramples the ground.
- The above fact is highly overlooked by
outfitters and people looking for a hunt!
- I don't wish to publicize all the
details of my overall hunt plan but you
can only hunt here when the big bucks are on
their feet in high-density!
- I will give an example: Most outfitters
book September 21st - November 9th. These 8 weeks are a
dead time for bucks to move period! Bucks
are resting for the rut and disappear almost
completely from the KY woods.
- Hunting those 8 weeks will ensure a
sub-standard hunt. If an outfitter hunts
those 8 weeks, the good hunts that arrive
November 10th and on are altered by the
- I would not hunt that outfitter at any
price that's a fact!
- Several other dates are bad as well. The
result is a weak posting of annual kills.
- My web shows more 2009, 2010, & 2011 kills by
far than any free range Kentucky outfitter
that I am aware of, and if we had gotten all
the makeable shots on the ground, there
would be 3x the kill pictures.
- Outfitting is my only occupation. With
me "the season never ends" and I work 12
months to get a lot of matures in front of
hunters. Expect your chosen outfitter to be
- Most important !!!!! Most all
outfitters will charge you for bucks under a
certain size. This is the worst policy an
outfitter can have for the big buck
hunter.........The policy is likely to cost
the hunter a buck of a lifetime!
Mature bucks do not offer a very long shot
window.......5 seconds or less...when a
hunter pauses to evaluate a shot which might
result in a fine ($$) ....more often than
not the very shot / opportunity for a mature
that was paid for is lost. When free range
mature bucks are spotted ..you must shoot
without pause. Snipe Creek's policy is: if
you see solid bone and big body...think of
one thing....getting those cross-hairs in
the box at the first opportunity and pull
the trigger! Very few mistakes are ever made
with this policy and a lot more dreams are
fulfilled. Hunters that book hunts with any
outfitter that has a penalty fee, are at a
huge disadvantage; odds of success ARE
REDUCED by a very large amount. Snipe Creek
will never have a penalty. Its insane!
- NO HUNTS OFFERED!!!-->
to November 9th. <--NO HUNTS
I am the only Kentucky outfitter that does
not bow hunt the 50 days (September 21st to
November 9th) before the rut rifle season.
Not hunting those dates creates a rare and
sound opportunity to hunt the rut rifle
season with unpressurized whitetails ;
vastly increasing the odds (while on stand)
at seeing more estrous does and rutting
Kentucky Bow hunts are highly demanded
between October 1st to November 7th. Those
hunts are offered at cheaper prices and many
bow hunters seek the so called Ky bow rut
hunts. These hunts offer low to marginal
opportunity at quality bucks and move
protective does with fawns to other "habitat
Bow hunting October 1st to November 9th --
MAKES FOR A SIGNIFICANTLY DIMINISHED
NOVEMBER RUT RIFLE HUNT.
NOT bow hunting October 1st to November
9th -- CREATES A SIGNIFICANTLY ENHANCED
NOVEMBER RUT RIFLE HUNT.
At Snipe Creek we constantly and
methodically implement many tactics that
manipulate the odds at increasing the deer
sightings and mature buck kills.
The result constantly ranks Snipe Creek as
the number 1 Kentucky outfitter in the
state. No hype , just a solid and prudent 12
month hunt plan that consistently puts a lot
of aged mature deer in front of hunters.
