I love my job. I have a patient who's from the great state of Kansas and I get to go hunt her family farm near Tipton. I'm going to drive 11 hours to hunt one day. If I can get one on those huge roosters it'll be worth it in my opinion. I'll post pics.

Ha yes, I have a few versions of merino wool.

My brother is coming along so we have our little GSP team now. We are on I35 north. Stopped at the Czech stop and grabbed kolachis.

I wear snake boots almost year round here in TX. We are going to stop somewhere and I might get a pair of boots for walking snowy stubble and grass.
Anyone have a recommendation for boots? I brought my Lowa alpines... Mule deer hunting boots. They are more geared for mountains and colder weather. Man they are heavy.
Oh and maybe a store to stop at headed through central OK and KS

Take 35W through Ft. Worth. Cabela's has some kangaroo leather boots that are comfortable and light

If you don't mind getting off the highway a bit, Bad Brad's BBQ in Stillwater has always been good.

Yes we will head to Cabelas. We are in OK now. This country up here is gorgeous. Makes me want to deer hunt.. Or duck hunt. We are seeing geese and ducks on all the tanks. This area must have huge deer. Nice to see a different setting.

We won't make the BBQ on our way in but maybe on our way back.

Here's our fancy dog box. My 15year old niece decorated for us. We stuffed them with hay and closed them up a bit. I was a little worried about the cold.

I had to wear my longhorns hat into the station in OK. They didn't love it

. we stopped in Salina to eat before we reached our destination cause LO says there won't be anything open when we get there.
We chose to eat at Tuscons. I wanted to try Kansas steak. It was just ok. Maybe I need to try again cause the ribeye I ordered was really tough. The local beer was great though.



We got there around 8:45 and almost hit a few monster does on the road. Man the deer there were huge!! Does were close to 200lbs I bet. The guy who farms the place was out of town so we had to go with the LO's wife's input. She sent us to the last harvested field. They leave stubble for the cows later. She told us to wear brush pants cause the cover next to the field is thick. We were half way when we found our first rooster. He ran into the cover and held up. Both dogs were pointing when he came busting out 20 yards ahead on Tonys side. He didn't get far.

I was getting worried when we were getting near the end of the best spot that nothing would be left. We were almost out when up ahead I saw two hen run into this brush near a broken wind mill. I motioned to Tony I saw them up ahead and we silently pulled out dogs in close with the e collars. When we got to the wind mill the dogs were on them and started trailing.
Three hens and a rooster came up on my side as I stepped over a broken tank. I totally blew it. I got on him late cause of the hens and my footing. Tony surprised me when he said he thought I might have hit him and he saw where he flew.
We got the wind right and it was a tree line with huge cotton woods next to another harvested grain field. Tony gave me the choice and I chose to walk in the cover. The rooster came out into the field way up ahead. I never even saw him but I heard Tonys shot and heard a thud. We were so pumped even though it wasn't perfect. The dogs were not quite on his scent when he came outta there. Tony kept saying man prairie storm did a well cause the bird was a long way off.
