Your response would be confusing to people who have no idea where Carroll County is.

Please keep your great stats coming, but be certain they pertain to and answer the question.
TC, they said they like the Lexington area, so I wasn't confusing them by mentioning other areas. The wanted to know about hunting, and the areas I mentioned are the very best for deer and turkey.

I love the area around Black Mountain - I have 6 uncles and aunts who were born at Lynch Hospital when it was still a bustling mining community. 4 generations of my family lived on Black Mountain, my great grandfather sold the highest point to the state - I would never try to talk down the area. I will say that jobs are more limited, and there are only small town type shopping in Harlan Co. just to portray the area accuratly.

Nopers sto819, its more exciting you asked the right question at the right place and time. Bulk of the commonwealth has no more use for policemen than fish has for bicycle. Meanwhile protection and management of wildlife game preserves are newly established top drawer items on the Frankfort agenda that deserve not to be overlooked. And reconnoitre yerself wildlife photographer along these lines, y'all find happy home here I'm sure.

Hazard and Pikeville are the only two with any size hospital, newspaper, or police department...I have lived in eastern KY 33 of my 44 years and out of these I would definately choose Pikeville.
acctually... Harlan has nearly everything to offer as far as shopping, resturants, and services such as hospitals and schools that Pikeville or Hazard does, and its closer to Middlesboro and Corbin Harlan rocks. Message me I can show ya tons of nice pictures of the town

Everyone has made some good suggestions for areas around Black Mountain. I probably don't even need to add anything to what has already been mentioned.

However, I noticed that you mentioned that you don't necessarily have to live near Black Mountain, as long as it's somewhere with good scenery. As another suggestion, if you also want to consider something a little farther from Black Mountain, you might look at Morehead. It's a small college town on the edge of the mountains, about an hour east of Lexington. It's large enough to have a hospital and newspaper, but still small enough to maintain the small-town feel you're looking for. I think it's a good compromise between being in the mountains but not too far from Lexington. Plus, it's near lakes, the Daniel Boone National Forest, Natural Bridge, Red River Gorge, and Cave Run Lake. All of these can provide good opportunities for photography. You might even be able to get a studio in the Pendleton Art Center in Ashland, about an hour east of Morehead. You could drive over from Morehead a couple of days a week to display and sell your photos. Check out the following link for more information:
The Pendleton Art Center: Home of the largest collection of artists under one roof. (click on the Ashland link for more information about the Ashland location)

If you want to be closer to Black Mountain, however, I'll add another vote for Pikeville.

Default Where in Kentucky is this?

Another thought is Federal law enforcement especially since all around that area of interest is the Daniel Boone National Forest and they do hiring by your husband going onto usajobs.gov and look up law enforcement officer (LEO for short). They higher quicker current or prior law enforcement, they are short of officers in Kentucky, and get into environmental and other. It is great work. It will give you up to 9 choices to pick where you want to be and they can all be in Kentucky if you choose. I miss that place it will be where I retire too.

I think Hazard would be well suited for both of your needs...there is a state police post there too.
