Where Hunting Happens, Conservation Happens™

Kentucky State Big Game Records

There must be something in the bluegrass because Kentucky is serving up big whitetails


Do you want to know a secret in the world of whitetail deer? Kentucky! If you’re looking to hunt trophy whitetail deer and even black bear, Kentucky is a solid bet. In fact, Kentucky ranks in the top 10 states for whitetails, according to the Boone and Crockett Club’s Records of North American Whitetail Deer. Kentucky wasn’t always the big buck factory that it has become. Consider that the majority of its top 10 record entries have been entered since 2000. And keep an eye out for big bull elk that are a recent transplant. They’re starting to grow very, very large!
