Following are the hunt details from the outfitter - MUCH more info is available on his website. 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.LODGING:
During this hunt, you will stay in our spacious 3500 square foot lodge built with the hunter in mind. We have separate bedrooms, 4 baths, big flat screen TVs, Elk horn chandeliers, 3 fully furnished kitchens with all the spices and utensils, all the way down to the coffee and filters. There are several gas grills on site as well if you want to do some grilling. We do not provide the meals but we have all the accommodations for you to cook if you want. We are located just 7 miles from the town of Minneapolis, Kansas where you can find most anything you could need grocery stores, liquor stores, gas stations, restaurants, etcÖ We can provide the evening meal for a small additional fee if you would like provided arrangements are made ahead of time. We (the guides) want to spend our time trying to make sure the hunters have a good hunt and are seeing the Monster Kansas Bucks, not cooking.
