    why anybody would want to hunt deer on ft, knox kentucky?

  • #2
    I breezed through Ft Knox in the early 70's, spent more time at Ft Campbell, home of the 101st Airborne, and 5th Special Forces. Were I given an opportunity to hunt either one I would take it. It's been a long time since I was there but I seem to remember a lot of guys talking about the deer back then. If I could get permission, I'd go in a heartbeat.

      Me too, limited number of hunters to answer the question.

        Another good reason is a lot of the areas are archery only. Military has first selection of areas. It is tough hunting because you may not hunt in the same place for several days in a row. The draw system and military exercises dictate what areas are accessible. Fort Campbell has great hunting.

          I like the idea of military base hunting. I do know that when i was a game warden...the military had active programs to manage game and to allow hunting on mostof its large complexes in Georgia.

            Before you start planning a hunt on ft. knox you should learn that hunter succes percent is way low.IN most areas you'll be hard pressed to see a deer and just as lucky to see someone who did.THE deer are mostly inbred and small bodied from years of over hunting.The few good areas there are set aside for a select few, you'll find no food plots,or mineral licks to help the deer in low mast seasons.There is no evening hunt as you are required to be checked out of the areas just as the prime time is beginning. I started hunting there in 1964 back then you would see probably 30 deer a day,now you sit all day and never hear a shot fired.The managers of hunt control turn a deaf ear to those who are concerned about the ft. knox deer herd, as the areas they hunt are well cared for with the surplus from the sales of the average hunter .

            • Bee hive construction
              by FirstBubba
              So far, I've built a "bee vacuum" and a "swarm trap".
              When I deploy the trap this spring, I'll need at least one hive....I hope!...
