We have a few openings for the early muzzle loader season as well as the first week of November (October 31 - November 4) Pre-Rut Archery hunts at Pipe Creek Guide Service. Tags are applied for in April and are 100% draw success. For the archery hunt, this is the only week that we have archery openings and have had great success on this week in past years. Prices for both hunts: $3000. More info on this hunt:
We hunt on 13,000 acres and growing in Ottawa, Saline, and Cloud Counties. This acreage consists of 45 farms. Our properties include rolling terrain and are located along creek and river bottoms, with an abundance of agriculture fields consisting of soy beans, corn, milo, alfalfa, and wheat all along these bottoms.
For our 5 1/2 day archery hunts we currently have around 300 ladder stands up on our farms and we are continuously adding more. We try to have one for each wind direction in each pinch point, travel corridor, river or creek crossing and bedding area. All the stands are flagged every 10-15 feet to the edge of the field with pink ribbon and on the pink ribbon we put DOT reflector tape. There is nothing worse than not being able to find your stand in the morning in the dark. We have taken every precaution to see to it that a blind man can find our stands. We only offer Bow hunts during the pre rut, rut and beginning of the post rut. This is late October and November. We only believe in running hunts when itís the best possible time to kill a Trophy Kansas Buck.
Muzzle loader is the first season of the year it is in late September. At this time of year we are hunting over standing crops. Kansas Whitetail Bucks are in bachelor groups and are patternable!! They are living in the soy bean, milo, and corn fields. The corn is generally cut by the time season starts so we donít have to fight that as cover. This is when we see for the first time other than trail cam pics what Kansas has to offer. We see some of the biggest bucks of the year for the first time during this season. We make use of our 300+ ladder stands and 38+ box blinds but mostly at this time we hunt off of a folding chair tucked in along the edge of the field. There is a lot of cover with the crops standing and the weeds and trees still being leafed out. The great part of this hunt is, if you spot a big Kansas buck feeding in an area and you canít get a shot he will likely be there again tomorrow. These are 6 day hunts.
