​​​​​Kentucky Afield Online

Welcome to the full online version of the Spring/Summer 2022 issue of Kentucky Afield magazine. We are offering two versions: one is a single page format suitable for printing a hard copy or viewing on a mobile device. The second version offers a two-page spread so you can better view the issue as it was originally designed. This version is better suited to desktop monitors.

This issue is not being offered in a print format due to supply chain issues and staffing shortages. The spring and summer issues are being combined to help bring the magazine back to its regular print schedule this fall.

Features inside include the latest on a four-year turkey research project that aims to get to the root of why fewer turkeys are appearing on Kentucky's landscape during the past few years. There's also a feature on the state's newest wildlife management area open to the public, which adds more than 1,800 acres of hunting and fishing property in western Kentucky.

You'll also read about some of the best wading and boat fishing opportunities in Kentucky, what's the best line to put on your reel and an overview of how the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources is managing its forests to better serve wildlife.

We hope you enjoy this and every issue of Kentucky Afield magazine.
