Kentucky Ranks Number 1 for Whitetail Trophy Hunters

By Associated Press | 

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.
