Welcome to Trophy Bones Outfitters
Semi-Guided Whitetail Deer and Turkey Hunts
We provide whitetail deer and turkey hunts on Farmers Ridge in eastern Kentucky. We purchased a tract of heavily wooded property in February 2009 known for excellent whitetail deer and turkey hunts. Additional tracts adjacent to the property were purchased shortly after. Most importantly we immediately started working with the Kentucky Department of Fish & Wildlife Resources (KDFWR) and the US Department of Agriculture. Together we created a strong plan to continue the development of the property for whitetail deer and turkey hunts. The ongoing plan includes habitat enrichment, improved forage development and predator control so, all hunts include a coyote hunt. Which aids in predator control if time and/or opportunity permits.
We have severely limited the hunting pressure or not allowed any hunting at all. As a result we have an excellent population of whitetail deer and turkey. KDFWR provides harvest guidance to ensure our whitetail deer and turkey populations continue to improve. Beginning with the 2020 season we will be booking a limited number of whitetail deer and turkey hunts.
Whitetail Deer Hunting
Most types of whitetail deer hunts can be accommodated. We have box blinds that can be heated if needed, ladder and tripod stands or bring your climbing tree stands if that is your preference. Because we value your time, all our hunts are semi-guided therefore you don't waste time searching unfamiliar terrain.
Our turkey population just keeps getting better year after year so, you can count on bagging a big ole bird. Bring your favorite calls and portable blinds, so you can call in a long beard for a hunt you will remember for years to come. We think you'll get hooked and come back year after year!
Coyotes can be very challenging to hunt and lots of fun too! We are not over run with coyotes, because we continually manage the population. Therefore, this allows us to offer coyote hunts as an add-on hunt to any of our hunts.
Its Not Our Passion - Its Our Life
We love setting in a stand waiting on the first signs that daylight is starting to creep into the darkness, the sounds that early morning bring as wildlife begins anticipating a new day dawning. Watching birds and squirrels and all sorts of wildlife going about their business of living. There is nothing that beats the sound of rustling leaves or twigs cracking indicating something is approaching. That's what makes our passion for hunting so much more than an obsession.
Although we have not hunted out of the country or even the western states, we have hunted nearly every state east of the Mississippi. Hunting has been an obsession for so much of our lives, therefore we can truly say it has been and is our life. Our love of the hunt far exceeds just our passion for the outdoors or the harvest. It's all about the experience. We get just as much excitement for a successful hunt we setup, as we do for our very own hunts.
