Tad Ladd West Kentucky Whitetail 2017 Velvet Bow Hunt Summary

The Velvet bow opener was just a fantastic hunt. We had 14 guests hunt over the opening two weekends.

We released 16 arrows. Our guests killed 7 great bucks and took 5 big does. We had a couple clean misses, and unfortunately had a couple arrows hit in non-fatal areas.

Our guests all gave us 5 stars on the new place. I'm telling you the truth, it is a hunters paradise, and the hunting ain't bad either, as you can see by our numbers.

Our guests saw 23 shooters while in the stand, and I think every guest saw at least one shooter.

We kicked off the weekend with a Kentucky bourbon tasting, conducted by our friend Tom Adams. It was a hit at the eclipse, a hit at the opener and we plan on doing it for the arrival night of every hunt this year.

We had a great time of camaraderie and a great time of getting to know new folks and enjoying the best weather we have had for the velvet hunt in 5 years. All in all, it was a big success.

Looking forward to the remainder of the year, and welcoming all our guests to the resort that's known as Tad Ladd West Kentucky Whitetails.

The long hours of hard work were made worth it, by the way our first hunting guests enjoyed the accommodations.

Thanks to our crew; Michael, Tina, Larry and Carl for being pro's and giving the extra effort.

We can't wait for the next bunch. See you then.
