Use A Trail CameraFrankfort, Ky. – A hunter’s search for trophy bucks has just become easier with a new twist on spyware. “Kentucky Afield” television takes a closer look this weekend, August 16 and 17.

Morgan County’s Steve Bailey has developed a web-based wildlife surveillance system that landowners can utilize to peek at what’s prowling on their private property. Part of the system is already in your pocket – a cell phone. As white-tailed deer season approaches, so does demand for the technology. Host Tim Farmer gets a demonstration as hunting goes high-tech.  

Elsewhere, “Kentucky Afield” goes adrift for catfish on the Ohio River near Henderson. Paul Willett is our guide to good catches.
