General Description

This 1,500 acre state forest and Wildlife Management Area is situated in the knobs region of the outer bluegrass. To hunters this means the habitat and landscape of this area are excellent for maintaining populations of deer and wild turkey. Located near Bernheim Forest, the site where wild turkey were first stocked during the restoration in the 1980s, they have continued to flourish and provide excellent harvest numbers. The potential for large bucks is also increased here due to the terrain and the number of oak and hickory trees in the forest. There are also some open fields and grazing spots as is typical in this area. Other than deer and turkey the area has a good squirrel population. Fishing is not recommended on this area due to the fact that the only open water is found in Crooked Creek along the northern border which occasionally dries up. Hikers are also welcome to come explore the trails located in the forest and take in the natural beauty.
