LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- A magazine says Kentucky is number 1 when it comes to whitetail deer hunting.
The latest issue of Outdoor Life ranks the Bluegrass State as the top whitetail trophy state in the country.
The magazine's June/July issue is available on newsstands.
The publication says western Kentucky was especially noteworthy for producing a relatively high number of trophy bucks.
In tallying the scores, Kentucky ranked second in the number of record-book bucks. But the state reached the top of the rankings due to a low hunter density, relatively low costs for guided hunts and hunter-friendly laws and regulations.
The magazine ranks Kansas second. Among neighboring states, Indiana ranks third, Illinois sixth and Ohio ninth.
