The thing is when hunting public land is you have to be willing to get off the beaten path and go where the other hunters are not willing to go. Therefore, sometimes that may mean putting in extra work by getting further back in the woods where the hunting pressure isn’t so heavy. Those big bucks didn’t get big by being dumb. The heavier the pressure the harder they are to kill. Most importantly, find locations where other hunters aren’t willing to go and that’s where the big boys will be hanging out.

To say the least I was frustrated that morning. That being said, if you are willing to do your homework and get back in them woods you can find your buck of a lifetime hunting public land. I’m going to try and do just that this year hunting in Kentucky.
