Hunter ready to harvest a whitetail deer or Turkey

Welcome to Trophy Bones Outfitters

Eastern Kentucky Whitetail Deer and Turkey Hunting

Our Beginning

We provide whitetail deer and turkey hunts on Farmers Ridge which has some of the best hunting in Eastern Kentucky.  We purchased our first tract of heavily wooded property in February 2009 known for excellent whitetail deer and turkey hunting.  Additional tracts adjacent to the property were then purchased shortly after. 

Our Plan

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 hunting. The ongoing plan includes habitat enrichment, improved forage development and predator control. For that reason, all hunts include a coyote hunt, which aids in predator control if time and/or opportunity permits. So, for the best in Eastern Kentucky hunting please visit out “Online Booking” page to book a hunt.  In addition, we are working with KDFWR to establish improved habitat for other wildlife such as grouse, quail and dove.

What’s Ahead

We have severely limited the hunting pressure or not allowed any hunting at all since purchasing our first property. We have an excellent population of whitetail deer and turkey and as a result we can provide some of the best hunting in eastern Kentucky. KDFWR provides harvest data and guidance to ensure our whitetail deer and turkey populations continue to improve.

Most types of whitetail deer hunts can be accommodated. We have box blinds that can be heated if needed. Also 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.

Turkey Hunting

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!

Coyote Hunting

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, if you bag your deer or turkey and still have time, we offer coyote hunts as fill-in hunt for our other hunts.                                                            

It’s Not Our Passion – Its Our Life

We love sitting 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.

Pass it on and “Take a Child Hunting.”
