"My experience will never be forgotten. This place is a world class fair chase farm, and when I say world class, I truly mean it. The deer (and turkeys) here are incredible! There are a lot of big STUDS that call this place home. The owner, Bobby , is a hard-working man that puts a lot of time and effort in maintaining his land. He knows the patterns of these deer better than the deer themselves, and has the pictures to prove it, both of deer that have been... harvested, and those that are still out there roaming around. He knows the science of hunting deer, i.e. wind direction, timing of when they feed, etc. and how to get you on one. There is a lodge there as well with state of the art accommodations, up to and including tempur pedic mattresses, flat screen tv, fully stocked kitchen, washer/dryer anything you could possible need is right there. His family was very welcoming and made me feel at home right from the start. They have a great sense of humor, by the way, so get ready to laugh! All hunting aside, I have a new family located in western Kentucky and God willing, will be returning every year. If you're looking to harvest big, mature bucks, and establish lifelong friendships, this is the place."

"I’ve had the opportunity to hunt with Bobby for the past 2 years. Both times I had successful hunts. I can honestly say Bobby will do everything in his power to put you on deer. His preparation and hospitality are unmatched. Bobby and Amy make a great team and will make sure you have the trip of a lifetime! I can’t wait to go back!"

"Hunting at Western Kentucky Whitetails was truly amazing! Good people, excellent cooking, and a nice lodge made me feel right at home. Seen several deer each time out and chose not to take a shot on several occasions. Grunted in 2 does and following close behind was my trophy buck and I was able to make a perfect bow shot on him. Bobby showed up within minutes to help recover my trophy. I can't wait to return next season to Western Kentucky whitetails."

"This hunt was amazing!
This was hands down the best Whitetail hunt that I have been on! Amazing people you have here working with you, along with amazing accommodations! I can’t wait to get back for another awesome hunt. I was able to take a nice buck this year and saw countless amounts of deer. It’s not always about the kill it’s what you take away from the hunt and especially the lifelong friends you make. Thanks for the opportunity you gave me. This was a hunt of a lifetime that I will never forget. Thank you all so much!
Love this place

"I first of all would like to thank Bobby & Amy for some of the best Hospitality I ever had at a hunting lodge. Bobby is probably one of the best OUTFITTERS I ever hunted with he watch all conditions for a great hunt. The winds is one of the best since a deer has to smelling a hunter in the woods and bobby to me seemed like he watched the conditions better than any weather man on any TV station. His Nick name should be MR WEATHER. His properties are FULL of DEER and very good quality deer also. He knows them by name and were they live. His lodging is 5 star which should be in a Forbes Magazine then OUTDOOR LIFE. From the moment you arrive till you leave the will take care of you like your family not just another hunter. So if your looking for a awesome hunt and enjoyment give him a call and he will give you a hunt of a life time."

Western Kentucky Whitetails was my first choice when I chose an out of state hunt for opening weekend during bow season in 2014. Working in the outdoor industry I have seen and hunted many outfitters, Western Kentucky Whitetails exceeded my expectations. Bobby Taylor (owner) answered all my questions up front and kept in contact with me up until my hunt. When I arrived I was treated like family, shown the properties, reviewed trail cam photos and set a game plan for the next days hunt. The lodge was great, the meals were terrific and I got the best nights sleep I have ever had…….posturepedic mattresses and pillows guaranteed that. Bobby took the time to not only check cameras every day he made sure every hunter in camp reviewed the photos for their location and spent about 20 to 30 minutes with each hunter every night to see if there was more he could do to get them on deer. I had seen many deer, had opportunities to harvest mature bucks but Bobby knew I was there for the deer of my life. I hunted hard for 5 days…….on the 6th day I was presented my opportunity……….I came back to Missouri with a 168 inch buck still in velvet. I keep in touch with Bobby and his family and have already scheduled my hunt for next year……Western Kentucky Whitetails has earned my business for as long as I can still pull my bow!

Please take the time to call Bobby and schedule your next hunt, you will not be disappointed I guarantee it! You may also contact me to discuss my experience at Western Kentucky Whitetails. Thanks Bobby, Amy and the Kids!

"Let me start off by saying I was new to bow hunting and it was my first time booking a paid hunt. Needless to say I had no idea what to expect. The very first day there Bobby made it very easy to feel comfortable hanging out with all the OLD guys in camp, lol. The Taylor's are one of the greatest families I've ever met. Mother Nature made the hunting very tough and had the deer held up tight! Never once did Bobby quit or even slow his efforts to get me on a deer. Due to lack of experience on my part, I didn't make it easy for him. I also was super picky and decided not to shoot any of the deer I saw. I would have to say that the experience I had while in Kentucky was life changing. Not only did I meet some amazing people but I learned a lot that I will take with me for the rest of my life. I would recommend Western Kentucky Whitetails. I will be going back soon."
