Default Great week In Kansas

What a great week in Kansas! This year we went up two weeks later than usual and I have to admit I was a little nervous that we would miss the rut. I was wrong as it was wide open and this was the best hunt I’ve had in the past 6 years up there. What made it even better was my good buddy Matt Nabors tagged out on a great deer the same afternoon as well! We hunted hard all week and both closed it out on the last evening. Memories that will last a lifetime!

A couple of great Kansas bucks. Congratulations!

Was the bow shot in the first pic quartering away?

That was actually exit hole. He was quartering to me, long story but had to watch him for 5 minutes straight on until he turned enough for ethical shot. Arrow went in right behind front shoulder and he only ran 75 yards.
