Our hunt began with rain, sleet, then 3" of snow followed up by record-setting low temps for Kentucky in November. 4 of our 6 days had wind chills in the single digits. The record cold didn't seem to bother the deer too much. We had great action every sit, and saw lots of bucks on this trip.... It was 10 degrees the morning I shot my buck. My bow was iced up and the tree stand would crack from the ice build-up every time I moved. Conditions were not ideal for bow hunting to say the least.... Tough conditions aside, I was lucky enough to get an opportunity at a good buck and made it count...

This was our 4th hunt in the last 5 years with Dan & Nancy Kendall and Pennyrile Outfitters in Western Kentucky. As always, Dan & Nancy are the ultimate hosts. They run a great camp and they are always going above and beyond at every opportunity to accommodate their hunters. Pennyrile boasts meticulously managed farms with great whitetail genetics, extremely comfortable accommodations, and great logistics.

We hunted the second week of November which is opening weekend of rifle season in Kentucky. The rut in this part of the state usually begins around November 7th and starts to wind down around the 21st.... Although it was the gun opener, my rifle never made it to the woods. Dan is the best when it comes to stand location and concealment which offers an excellent opportunity to take a great whitetail with your bow at Pennyrile.

In addition to great bow stands, Dan has multiple heated shooting houses for his rifle hunters. Most of the properties are working farms planted in corn, soy beans, and wheat. Dan also plants over a hundred acres of clover, wheat, and rye just as attractor plots for the deer and turkey. You will see lots of deer and the buck to doe ratio is excellent.

Overall, Pennyrile offers a very good semi-guided, fully accommodated whitetail hunt at a very reasonable price. I cannot recommend them highly enough... Anyone looking to hunt hat part of the country should give Dan a call. Please feel free to PM or call me anytime if you want more details about the experience offered at Pennyrile.

Nice buck! The rut and cold temps probably keeps those bucks moving. Well done!

Appreciate your info and feedback, I looked at some European websites to try and get info on the value of this particular Steyr. Further input from you on it's value would be appreciated as you have a bunch of them. I assume you collect the Steyr Luxus for a reason ---they are a finely built rifle.
I’ll never hunt Africa, but give me please a Jack O’Connor hunt up high in the Canadian Rockies!
Just came from a hunt and already longing for the bush
