DHBB Pro-staff member Troy sent me a picture of a nice whitetail he got on trail camera in his backyard. That is a nice whitetail Troy. Next year you need to put you a hang on or a ladder stand back there and get that big boy. On a different note, we had a great year hunting in Kansas. We can’t wait until next season.
Hunting In Kansas
It is that time again the end of another year of deer hunting. It always seems to go so fast. I hope you all had a great year of deer hunting and getting after those big bucks.
It was one of the toughest years of deer hunting that I can ever remember. I saw less whitetails this year than any that I can remember. With a very late start scouting because we moved from Georgia to Kansas in August. I just never seemed to get in the groove of things. Although I did locate some very good sign and hunt on some very promising looking land. Hunting in Georgia all my life I’ve got a thing or two to learn about hunting in Kansas. With all the crop fields in the area I had a hard time locating where the whitetails would be feeding. They could feed in so many different areas. Pinpointing the location where they would be feeding was kind of challenging to me not knowing the full landscape of the land.
I tried to find the location where I was hunting on Google Earth but could not pin point my exact hunting location. Next year I should be way more prepared and have a better chance at harvesting one of the big bucks that eluded me hunting in Kansas this year.
Post Season Scouting
I plan on doing some post season scouting and shed hunting. Hopefully I can find some great land to lease or public land to hunt not to far from my house. A lady that we met at our church said I could hunt on her land. She told me there is a mountain lion that has been seen on her property on several occasions. I am not to sure about hunting where there are mountain lions. Those things are big and tend to get hungry.
Any way it is never to early to start preparing for next year. Now is a great time to do some post season scouting. Although today the temperature is 5 degrees for the high and minus 13 for the low. I think I will hang out by the fire and watch some football today. I’m a wuss, but this Georgia boy is just not used to this extreme cold weather. I dealt with it when I was in Germany in the Army, but I was in my twenties then. I’ll be ready next year when it is time to get after those monster whitetails. I can’t wait to see one of these big old Kansas brutes.
