  • Outdoors - HIP keeps tabs on...

    Kentucky is drawing national attention after dramatically improving the accuracy of harvest and participation information collected from its waterfowl and migratory bird hunters.

    The Harvest Information Program (HIP) provides state and federal biologists with data to generate reliable estimates of migratory bird hunter activity and harvest. The estimates are used to help shape season dates, bag limits and population management.

  • Outdoors - Drought shouldn’t...

    The moderate drought conditions across Kentucky brought baked, cracked yards, dust, fires and streams as low as any time in recent memory. This would seem a negative for the upcoming waterfowl season, but the summer’s ample rains provided a cushion against the fall dry spell.

  • Bears fall to John Hardin 36-22


    For the second year in a row, the Spencer County Bears saw their season end in a second-round playoff loss to John Hardin. And like last year, it was a battle that came up just a little short, 36-22.

  • Win or lose - you gotta love...


    The end of the season is always hard. Watching athletes who have dedicated most of the year to training, practicing and competing game after game, only to see the season end in a loss is not a pleasant occasion.

  • Bears advance with 28-7 win


    Overcoming some sloppy play, five turnovers and several penalties, the Spencer County Bears were able to survive Louisville Valley and their own mistakes in claiming a 28-7 victory in the first round of the playoffs Friday night in Taylorsville.

    Despite some hiccups, the Bears put the game away in the third quarter and didn’t give up a score until late in the contest.

  • Spencer County Fall Ball

  • Outdoors - Firearm deer season...

    Shredded bark on saplings, fresh scrapes along old logging trails and trail camera snapshots of passing bucks are encouraging signs that deer activity is picking up across Kentucky and just in time.

    The statewide modern firearm deer season opens Nov. 12 this year. Arguably the most widely anticipated of the fall hunting opportunities, it’s structured to coincide with the peak of fall breeding, known as the rut.

    “Deer are going to be moving,” said Gabe Jenkins, deer program coordinator with the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources.

  • Bears finish strong over HC


    Racking up over 600 yards of offense and holding their opponent to less than half that, the Spencer County Bears played one of their best games Friday night in a 37-14 win at Henry County.

    The timing couldn’t be better, as the postseason begins this Friday night and the Bears were coming off a bad loss to Shelby County two weeks ago followed by a bye week. It was good to recapture the winning feeling.

  • Special Olympians advance to...


    Spencer County Special Olympic team competed in the 2016 Regional competition at Kingpin Bowling Lanes in J-town last weekend. Out of the 31 athletes that practice with the team every Monday they took 25 athletes and 5 unified partners to the Regional games and represented Spencer County proudly.  All will now go on to compete in the State Competition in Louisville next month with over 3,000 athletes from across the state.

  • Outdoors - Three great float...

    The near drought conditions of the fall season seem to have lengthened the peak of the changing of the leaves. We still have a couple of good weekends left of the beautiful fall colors.

    Paddling a stream during the peak of fall colors is the best way to enjoy this annual spectacle of nature. The brown, orange, red and yellow leaves soar above your head and line the tops of rocky, river bluffs. You see few others on the water at this time of year, lending peaceful solitude to your paddle.
