Default Scored in Kansas!

My buddy in South Kansas called me yesterday saying he was off and asked me to come up. Since it was 85 degrees o. The Panhandle yesterday, I said oh heck yeah, I'm there.

Drove up last night and climbed a familiar burr oak that had blessed me twice before. Saw a great buck at about 80 yards right at first light, but he wasn't responsive to any grunting or rattling and just kept walking. About 20 minutes later, this guy came in grunting and trailing a doe. I nailed him at about 12-15 yards. Shot was a bit high, but that Slick Trick jacked him up and he only ran 50 yards and piled up in sight. Blind man could have followed the blood trail.

I'm a blessed man.

Thanks, y'all.

Quick question...do the recent CWD regulations prevent me from bring the head to a Texas taxidermist?

My previous KS bucks were mounted in KS since I lived here at the time. Not the case now.

No problem, you can bring the head just not when it's attached to a live deer!

Another. I was surprised that this buck's body was a good bit smaller than the other bucks I've killed or seen killed here. Of course, he has been running and chasing for the last three weeks. Maybe he slimmed down a little bit.

You are one lucky feller. Run up to Kansas on last minute notice, climb tree and shoot buck. Wow how lucky is that! A very good buck at that!!! Congratulations on your success with bow and arrow. You make it look easy.

Thank you, sir. I fully admit to being lucky, and blessed. It may be hard to understand, but even after shooting this buck and being totally excited and thankful for him, I'm kind of bummed. Despite still being able to shoot some does, my Kansas season lasted about 30 minutes. It's basically over, so it's somewhat of a letdown. Hope that makes sense.

It was a truly crazy morning. Thanks, guys.

Well unbeknownst to me, my taxi in Kansas front-loaded my 2017 buck and it's already done. My buddy picked it up yesterday and sent me some pics. From what I can see, it looks pretty good.
