Big Bluegrass Bucks

Big Bluegrass Bucks

One of my favorite things to do is to search the web for the biggest bucks killed in my home state of Kentucky as well as around the country. I guess it’s kind of like going to the check station after the morning hunt to see what everyone else has killed, only now we do it online.
With the Kentucky season starting in early September each year I’m usually treated to several big velvet buck pictures. I will use this blog post to add pictures as I find them and I’ll share details as I learn them. Be sure to check back because I will add them all year-long to this post.

Lewis County Monster

This one is a monster out of Lewis County. Killed by Nathan Conley opening weekend of Kentucky’s 2014 bow season. They have tons of history with this buck and I look forward to sharing the full story as I learn the details.

 Mr. Jones

This next buck is one that the guys from HeartLand Heritage TV have been after. They nicknamed him Mr. Jones and they closed the deal on opening weekend of bow season as well. I believe they are I’m the northern Kentucky area but I’ll have to check and be sure.

Here’s a story I pulled from Kentucky Hunting Net

Justin Morris’s Franklin County 10 point

“Well…that was a short season. Second time in 10 years I have tagged my buck on 2nd day of the season. I hadn’t planned on shooting anything last night but when this guy came in there was no doubt in my mind he was getting the rage to the cage. 5.5 years old ( fairly sure based on last years trail cam pics) and dressed over 200lbs. Scored at taxidermist this morning 146 on the nose. If not for the weak brows he would have hit the 150 mark. Tickled to death with him. 25 yard recovery on a quartering away shot. Went in behind last rib, took out the top of the heart and sliced his trachea in half. Got in the stand at 3:30 and he rolled into the food plat at 6pm. Had deer and turkey all over me till that point. Now its time to work on getting my 10 year old a nice one. His goal is 140 plus so I have my work cut out for me but very happy he’s thinking that way :-)
