Deer Hunting Preparation

deer hunting preparation agriculture
Deer hunting preparation is a year round task.

Today I went and started my deer hunting preparation and got all my trail cameras up and running. Hopefully I’ll have some good pictures to share soon. I had a great day out in the woods putting up cameras, trimming trails and I put out some apples. I’m ready to start my deer hunting preparation.

Deer Hunting Preparation Now

I went to two of my favorite deer hunting spots. I saw the new corn they planted on the property that butts up to the land I hunt. My neighbor had told me they were planting corn back there but I wasn’t quite sure where they were going to plant it. I thought from looking at the map that they were going to plant it deeper into their property. I was pleasantly surprised to see that they planted the corn all the way down the south property line where I have permission to hunt.

Food for Deer

This  particular piece of deer hunting property was already awesome. The corn all the way down the south property line makes it even more awesome.  Now it has corn on the south property line and a huge corn field on the east property line as well. I have a stand in the hardwoods that run in between the beautiful corn fields. Also there is a very nice creek where the whitetails can get water. This piece of property has everything whitetails need, plenty of food, water and cover. The other piece of property I went to today is an absolute honey hole. I put up a trail camera on a mineral lick site for whitetails and I trimmed some shooting lanes and trails to the stands.

This piece of property is surrounded by huge soybean fields that are coming up nicely and has corn planted on two ends of the property. Needless to say I am stoked to get after some huge whitetails.

Score Kansas Tags

I talked to fellow DHBB Pro-staffer Troy today. He got his Kansas tags today and will be coming to hunt with me during the rut in early November. I will be filming Troy on his hunt and hopefully we will get some awesome Kansas whitetail rut action on film to share on DHBB. Troy will be making the trek to Kansas from Georgia, it will be his first time getting after Kansas whitetails. I hope I can help Troy get a huge Kansas buck and get it on film to boot. If you are considering coming to hunt Kansas this season now is the time to get your tags. Put out mineral licks. And to get those trail cameras out to get those pictures of those big bucks as they develop.

  1. Me and a coulple of friends are hunting kansas this year for the first time. we are planning to hunt the first or second week of november. do you have any advice on which week might be better. I think the full moon is the 10th i dont know if that has anything to do with deer movement or not. thanks

  2. Hey Joe, thanks for stopping by. I am fairly new to hunting Kansas but the two years I’ve been here were both a little different. Two years ago the bucks went crazy on Halloween day, and this past season it was around the 16th of November. So it’s kind of hard to say for me but I would say anywhere around Halloween to the third week of November would be a great time to be in the woods and just hope you pick the week they start chasing.

  3. Joe, I meant to add that I hunt in Northeast Kansas and I’m not sure how the rut varies in other regions of Kansas but it is probably about the same.

  4. Thanks for taking the time to email me back. We will be hunting in unit 9. It should be a good experience whether we are lucky enough to get a deer or not. We live in NC so just the possibility of seeing big deer will keep us excited sitting in the woods. We have very litte chance to kill big deer around here.
