What will the answer be to the following equation?

1 black powder hunter + 1 week in November + Florida's Tosohatchee State Park (Seen Below)


is greater or lesser than

1 black powder hunter + 1 week in November + Kentucky's Bear Camp (seen below)



Or, venison divided by time and place = Florida dinner or Kentucky dinner? Laughing
Enquiring minds want to know! My fun is about to start and I am very eager. 

So, anybody got any sure fire hunting superstitions that guarantee a successful hunt?

I'd have to go with KY being the most productive. Plus, it looks more like home (I'm about 50 miles west of Nashville).

KY has a bear season but very few bears are killed from what I've read. YOUR chances of killing a deer at Tosohatchee are slim; your chances of killing a bear in Kentucky (unless baited) are slimmer.
The weather should be much more comfortable in Kentucky and the bugs fewer.

BUT if you want to be a candy ass, pay the $$$ and go to Texas where you will be wined, dined and kill a deer with no problems ... except paying for it.

KC, I looked it up, only 31 bears killed in KY in 2016. Harlan County had the most at 8, Letcher County had 5. It's a long season using both archery and firearms so the success rate is probably about 3-5% ... maybe less.

https://app.fw.ky.gov/webtelecheckresults/tcbearresults.aspx

I found this about deer hunting in Tosohatchee. It's an old report.

"In terms of overall hunter success, measured in the average number of man-days required to take one deer, Tosohatchee was the fourth best in the region. Hunters there took a total of 84 deer and spent an average of 21 man-days per deer in the field."

Dawg: Those turkey are in one of the counties surrounding Louisville. 
Bear Camp is owned by one of my oldest friends. I think he'd slap me if 
I got more specific on an open forum. Laughing

Sparky: Super cool! I stomp around in the woods about 40 miles to your west at least once a year. 
Last year, I was sick as a dog during deer season and kept coughing- so no. I got no deer. I saw a lot of nice sign, though. 
And, I could have taken a possum. I was not that hungry. 

Patocazador: First of all, I am super impressed with the statistical break down of Tosohatchee! Thank you. Second, I was not clear enough. The name of the place my friend owns is known among close friends as 'Bear Camp.' This is our designation for it. Once a year, he opens his season with a 'Heathen Weekend' for said close friends. However, we are not doing pagan rituals nor are we going after black bear. Deer is the desired game. Turkey when in season. My understanding of Kentucky game matches yours. Bear and Elk hunting is best in eastern Kentucky and bear chances are still low. IDK about elk. Those moved in well after I moved away.

So, the question remains, 'where will my venison come from?' Florida or Kentucky? (Tennessee is my last ditch fall back position when visiting the in-laws. Shocked  )

Kentucky gives you a MUCH BETTER chance of killing a big buck since Florida produces very few large deer, antler-wise.

I don't know about the overall success rate of KY deer hunters but private land (except mine) almost always is more productive than public land.

If you go to KY, remember you are there to HUNT not drink Maker's Mark. drunken

patocazador - "If you go to KY, remember you are there to HUNT not drink Maker's Mark. 

(Grins) I make no promises. It is Heathen Weekend. Very Happy

But, if you wish to take a Kentucky Colonel's advise about bourbon? (We take such things seriously. We know 
the proper respect to be shown when making an authentic Mint Julep.)
  king  

Makers is gooood. BUT, when in my home state?  I find Eagle Rare to be better- and cheaper. It is hard to find out of state. 
If you wish to go whole hog? Blanton's. Period. End of discussion. 

This bottle runs about $56.00. The company WILL sell you small (3 CL) sample bottles for $5.60. 
conner - "Sparky, He didn't tell the whole truth - they are more like out-law relations..... "

There is some truth to this. My Great Grandpa on my wife's side and a Great Uncle were bootleg whiskey makers/runners. Gramps would make the Tennessee whiskey, Uncle would sell it in Chicago. Uncle dressed like a gangster till his dying day and carried a revolver. He had one eye. I found his spares in Grandma's attic while cleaning. Granny was embarrassed by this and kept the boot legging as a family secret until they both passed. No, I do not have the recipe. That was lost when we lost them.

But, back to hunting... 

I think I will be able to focus on the HUNT over the bourbon. These will likely keep me focused.

I was just replying to the input. Smile Just follow the bouncing comments (see quotes) and the replies make sense. 
And, hopefully, it was fun. 
"DAMN I'm lost KC, help me old friend ....  headslap " 

I'm sorry, my friend. Dementia is rough on the ancient when they begin to lose a step mentally. Sad
Would you like us to slow down?   Wink
