Ten Years Old And A 6-Inch Beard, This Weekend On "Kentucky Afield"
Youth turkey season, hybrids in the jumps and school kids competing for the state archery title are all on the next “Kentucky Afield” this weekend, April 17 and 18.
Kentucky’s wild turkey season opened with a youth-only hunt on Easter weekend. For Boyle County’s Luke Duncan, age 10, this was his first ever turkey hunt and his fingers were crossed. Dad Jim and host Tim Farmer were along for the special occasion. By 7:30 a.m., the lad harvested a gobbler with a 6-inch beard, almost as big as his grin.
Meanwhile, sometimes nature gives you little notice, but when the phone rang with a tip that hybrid striped bass were in the jumps at Lake Herrington, we rolled the dice that we could get there quickly enough. Speaking of hybrids, Farmer shows off his tangy Mediterranean recipe.
Also on the show, 2,400 elementary, middle and high school archers took aim on the 2010 state championship. We have highlights from the tournament held in late March at the Kentucky International Convention Center in Louisville.
