A few pictures from this years Kansas Hunt. November 8th-16th, great trip. Butler County, Unit 14. Harvested evening of November 13th in the snow. Lots of rut action, several opportunities at younger bucks in bow range. Already counting days until next year. Heres the story:

[Linked Image]
I took this top picture about 30 minutes before the chaos started. My buck was standing right off this creek bank to the left when I let the arrow fly. It all started when he came in and started feeding up on the right bank at 45 yards. I immediately knew what buck it was since we have pictures of him since 2016. As I stood and grabbed my bow to wait for the right shot opportunity, he picked his head up and was staring hard in the standing bean field behind my back. About 30 seconds later I could hear something walking around behind me, but I couldnít move. Finally he turned away and I looked in the field behind me and there stood another mature 8 point shooter staring down into the creek at my buck. He pinned his ears back and started to cross this creek, looking for a fight. I drew my bow and tried multiple times to stop him for a shot but he wasnít having it. I let down, and pulled the bow around the other side of the tree to see him running up the steep bank and stopped right on the field edge aggressively licking his lips. They both were posturing getting ready to square off. He was quartered to me as I ranged him at 24 yards and I knew it was now or never even though I dont like quartered to shots. Luckily he was close enough that I got enough penetration through the front left shoulder. He ran about 90-100 yards, and the rest is history. Tracking job was easy with the ground covered in snow and a red carpet from the hole left by the Rage. Such a beautiful place and I couldnít be more grateful. This buck weighed right under 280 pounds. You go to the midwest to hunt these big bodied mature bucks, and I was fortunate enough to connect with one. I wont forget this hunt as it was my first bow kill in Kansas after 3 years of managing our farms at Cottonwood Creek Hunt Club. Also got a bonus duck hunt in halfway through the trip one morning when we had 30 mph north winds and 5 degree wind chill. Decided to chase birds that morning vs. freezing in a tree stand!

Thanks for reading!

Jeeeeeeeeeeeeeezzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Nicely done sir!!!!! Kansas is on my bucket list and I can wish. That is a stud of a deer. Did you age him? Looking at his Roman nose, grey hair, body I would almost say that deer is about 9 1/2 yrs old. A true Monarch. I would also say if you would have caught him at about 5 1/2 to 6 1/2 that rack would have been twice as big. Please note I am not making fun of the antlers, I just believe with his old age he was in a downward spiral. And yes I would take him in a heart beat.

We have pictures of him 2016/2017, he was much bigger last year. Let me see if I can find some pictures. Definitely went down this year and knew he was on a downward spiral no doubt about it. He was an old warrior for sure and ran that property. The moment he saw that other buck he immediately pinned his ears back and headed in that direction. Harvesting him I think will be good for the next year or two as I'm sure he ran off a lot of the 3-5 year old studs.
