Ky Hunting is one of the most popular hunting clubs in the state of Kentucky, and you can catch up with them on Facebook and Twitter.
And with all the attention on the state’s hunt, they’ve got an entire category of contests, ranging from photography contests, to hunting trips, to kayaking.
We spoke with some of the members about the challenges and opportunities involved in these types of contests.
Krystal: So what is the Ky hunting club?
What are their goals and why should you join?
Lydia: Ky Hunting aims to bring a relaxed atmosphere and the spirit of the outdoors to our hunting trips.
We aim to give people the opportunity to meet other hunters and see a real hunting experience, which is what we’ve always strived for.
We have over 50 years of hunting experience and we’ve been involved in several different hunts over the years.
We want to give everyone an opportunity to get out and hunt with us, whether it be in a day, a week, or a month.
The first contest we ran was in June of 2018.
We wanted to bring in some competition and to see if we could capture some of those old-fashioned photos of deer in the woods.
We got over 3,000 entries.
And then after that, the hunters came back and told us that we had an amazing turnout.
I think that’s a pretty good sign.
We want to see what kind of people we can get.
We also want to get the best photos of our members in the field.
We’re not here to be a top dog, but to show people what Kentucky can do when it comes to deer and other animals.
I guess the thing that you really want to do with the club is be a part of it, because that’s the kind of atmosphere you want to have.
And then when we got back to the campfire in October of 2019, we had a very successful hunting season.
We had over 1,500 entries, so it was a great turnout.
Then we had another event in October, and it was one of those great events where we had over 2,500 people, and we were really happy with what we saw.
We took that event as a sign that we are a good hunting club and we’re going to have fun.
So we have a ton of fun with it, and I think we’ve got a great program.
I’m pretty excited about the program that we’re doing with our members.
We are definitely looking forward to that next year.
So I’m definitely looking at this as a really good year.
I know that we have the best hunting club in the country.
That is not going to be easy.
And I know there are a lot of people who are going to come to our club.
It is going to require a lot from the members, but I think it will be an excellent year.
Klystal: I’m so glad you guys have the Ky Hunters Club.
They really are a great group of people.
Lydia: Yeah, the best of the best.
You are the people that we go out of our way to meet and get to know.
We like to get to hang out and talk about what we are doing and see if you can do that with us.
So that is the kind that you guys are known for.
It was great to get that recognition.
Lydia, we are really happy to have you with us and to be with you guys.
Kody: The most important thing is the hunting experience.
We don’t want you to go out hunting in the dark without a camera.
We always ask for all the information we can before we do a trip, and that includes what kind, where, when, and what kind.
We need to know everything about the area that we want to go to, and when it’s best to go.
We try to have a group of about 30 to 30-45 people at a time, and if we can’t have that many people in the same place, we ask one person to go with us on the hunt, and everyone else goes somewhere else.
We never go to the same spot twice.
We do try to be as efficient as possible, and the people are always working together.
They will do everything they can to help out.
We really don’t have a whole lot of rules, but we always ask that we know if it’s too much of a hassle to get everyone to go on a trip together, and whether it’s safe to do that.
And if we’re not sure, we always have some rules that we do follow.
And we always tell everyone if we feel it is too difficult to be in that particular area, we’ll ask them to go somewhere else, but if they have no idea where to go, we will go there ourselves.
So, it’s not a big deal.
It’s just a matter of keeping it organized and keeping everybody
