Resolutions for 2013

The League : December 29, 2012 4:40 pm : President's Message

As we embark on the New Year of 2013, it’s customary, as with any other year, to make a few New Year Resolutions.  Now most behavioral experts suggest that your resolutions should be modest in nature…that’s a great suggestion, you’ll feel a lot better by achieving rather than failing.

But before I go too far, what about last year’s New Year Resolutions?  Did I fall off the wagon so to speak or was I diligent in achieving my goals?  Here’s a quick look… more »

A Special Message: Newtown

The League : December 19, 2012 4:41 pm : President's Message

The events at the Newtown, CT Sandy Hook Elementary have left us all in shock.

It comes as little surprise that Lanza, the assailant, is said to have had mental problems…any person or persons that could even contemplate such a horrific attack most certainly has psychological problems. more »

Relish The Autumn Season

The League : November 9, 2012 4:39 pm : President's Message

Recently a morning hunt turned into an all-day hunt.  No real reason…I had nowhere to be, it was one of those rare days that allows you to just let the world pass you by, or did it.

As I sat in my perch, 20 feet above the ground overlooking a stream, the world wasn’t passing me by, she was embracing me.

I watched a troop of gray squirrels argue and spar with each other over acorns for what seemed like hours; refereed from above by the cry of a hawk, sending each of the squirrels to their corners. more »

Support HB1

The League : October 2, 2012 4:38 pm : President's Message

“It is not what we do, but also what we do not do, for which we are accountable.”  These words of the French playwright Moliere, penned over 300 years ago, could not ring more true for the sportsmen and women of our Commonwealth.

Mark your calendars, sportsmen take action on November 6, 2012…on this day; good or bad, history will be made, tradition and heritage will continue or fade into memories. more »

Getting The Kids Involved

The League : September 22, 2012 4:37 pm : President's Message

President’s Message

Some months back my 10 year old daughter came home from school.  Shortly after arriving home, she began rummaging through her backpack, producing a rumpled paper.

That paper, beaten and bruised, a little worse for wear and tear was about to open a gateway for that wide eyed little girl. more »

The League : July 9, 2012 4:36 pm : President's Message

While we were all rejoicing about the early warming Spring temperatures, scalding Summer heat was lurking just around the corner.

Record breaking heat has engulfed our Commonwealth with little relief in sight. more »

New Year’s Resolutions

The League : December 31, 2011 4:33 pm : President's Message

As we embark on the New Year of 2012, it’s customary, as with any other year, to make a few New Year Resolutions.  Now most behavioral experts suggest that your resolutions should be modest in nature…that’s a great suggestion, you’ll feel a lot better by achieving rather than failing.

Being someone who is incessantly drawn to the outdoors, it’s more than predictable that my New Year Resolutions would revolve around my activities of the field and stream.
So here are my New Year Resolutions for 2012…

KDFWR Adjustments

The League : June 9, 2011 4:31 pm : President's Message

Often times, the KY Department of Fish & Wildlife Resources is exemplified as a model for other such agencies around the United States.

The KDFWR was purposefully created, by the KY Legislature and the League of KY Sportsmen, in a manner designed to keep politics out of wildlife. more »

United We Stand, Divided We Fall

The League : December 9, 2010 4:29 pm : President's Message

“United We Stand, Divided We Fall”, you don’t have to be a native Kentuckian to understand these words.  In fact, these same words are used around the globe as a call to action.

Now is the time for the sportsmen/women of Kentucky to take these words to heart…you’re under attack and you don’t even see it coming. more »
