HM, best of luck finding a better place to hunt. 

I had 50 acres I thought I could begin managing some deer in KY, but now back in OK.
I still have the property up for sale in KY and hoping and praying it sells soon to a hunter.
Lots of turkeys and deer as property is on the Daniel Boone National Forest.

HM - have been following this thread and hopefully you guys (and the land owners) will settle down so you can go after the birds and later on put some feeders on it for the deer on the property..just to keep the does there!!

Good luck and let us know what happening....Bird season starts the 24th of March in Georgia, so it is only a few weeks away......Bo.....

I figured I would update this post with new info...

We now have the following properties to hunt. We havent deer hunted them yet so that is still an unknown factor but they do look promising... I also included the pricing so anyone interested in hunting in KY will know what you are up against.

141 Acres in Butler County - 10 minutes from the cabin - year round lease - $2200 per year
58 Acres in Edmonson County - 50 minutes from the cabin - year round lease - $1700 per year
150 acres in Butler County - 10 minutes from the cabin - Turkey Season Only - $200 per year

We also discovered a lot of public land within 15 minutes of the cabin. We killed 1 bird off of it this year and jumped a few deer doing it. Im not big on public land hunting but the fish and game guy told us its pretty dead during the week so we may do some hunting there, especially for does.

Well, thats us for the coming year. We just finished planting a 1 acre food plot in soybeans on the edmonson property and we will plant a few acres of plots, this fall, on the 141 acre tract.
