Woodcock and woodland streams this weekend on “Kentucky Afield” TV
Frankfort, Kentucky – Thick underbrush and quick flight are just two of the challenges that dog and hunter must overcome to hunt woodcock in the early season. Details from Daviess County are flushed this weekend, November 8 and 9, on “Kentucky Afield” television.
Similar to bobwhite quail and ruffed grouse, American woodcock live in thick habitat. With trees and understory that have not yet lost their leaves to autumn, taking aim and taking a shot take skill. For the complete picture, western Kentucky farmer Jesse Emmick takes host Tim Farmer into the wilds for a lesson in Woodcock 101.
Also on the show, with woodcock season open through Dec. 1, we work up an appetite with Philippe Roca and a traditional French recipe for the bird.
Elsewhere, walk with us along Mill Branch in Knox County for a stream restoration project. This program restores streams to their natural meander to help control erosion and safeguard aquatic habitat. One species this project will aid is the blackside dace, a small endangered fish found only in 11 counties in the coal-rich region of Kentucky and Tennessee. More information on stream restoration can be found online under the fishing tab at fw.ky.gov.
