Default Kansas is home for the next 8 days

I left Pasadena @ 0230 heading to Trego Co. Kansas. The drive was wet all the way until Norman OK. Stopped 3 times for diesel and to relieve some liquid pressure. I also made one quick trip into Wallyword in Hays KS. I arrived at the property gate at 1600. Next I took a quick shower to rinse all the Pasadena off of me. Then I unloaded the buggy and made it to the stand around 1645. Hopefully I get some action so I can stay awake.

Ok it's the first afternoon. Will you shoot a doe if the right shot presents itself? What is your overall limit? How many miles was your total trip? Have you had game cameras out in order to get an idea as to what kinds of bucks are in your hunting area?

I'm just trying to help you stay awake Kemosabe. Best of luck to you this coming week.

This morning was tough. I woke up to lightning in the distance and a drizzle rain. Winds were 20-25 out of the south. I only saw 3 does and they didn't want to hang out long. This evening the conditions are better the wind laid but there's still a dampness in the air. The Smoky Hill is flowing.

I've never hunted this early in the season up here. We usually get good pictures this time of year but the fact that there's still a lot of crops to be cut is probably going to cut way down on the number of deer I see. But it beats sitting at home watching hunting on TV and wishing I was exactly where I am.

The fog is lifting and I don't hear the Smoky Hill flowing anymore so I guess it's not raining back to my west anymore. Although the sound of turkeys fluttering down from their roost just 50 or so yards behind you will really test your ability to maintain control of severe coffee bubble guts. On a positive note I did just have a little **** 6 come by .
