Hunt In: Kinney County, Kansas and Out West
Default 2 Epic Bucks, 2 States, 48 hours

Iíve had a pretty amazing week in the WT woods...

I waited 18 years to draw another good TPWD public draw hunt and dang it was a good one. I took this 9 point Tuesday at the Matador that was aged at 7.5 by their biologist. I shot him about 2.5 miles from my truck and spent most the day getting him out of caverns, off the ridge and through a river. What a rewarding hunt! Texas Public land Buck Down!









After tagging out early I hauled butt to Kansas for my favorite week of the year. When itís on itís on. The second day 15 minutes into the hunt an absolute stud walked out and I hammered him, he made it 30 yards. A 160Ē Kansas stud, I couldnít be happier. Thereís no place like Kansas in November!

Iíve had one heck of a year, keep after them boys!

Nice James! I've always enjoyed hunting the Matador. Haven't been there in quiet a few years, but there are some big boys out there. It's hard to get drawn for the rifle hunt. Then to follow it up with a Kansas giant! Man, do you work?
