Default 9 Days to Kill in Kansas!!! Live!!!

I’m late starting my live hunt but I’m here none the less.
I drove in to North Central Kansas yesterday with drool running out of my mouth. I’ve been waiting on this trip all year.
I came up a day early to Pheasant hunt this morning and get my first sit in a deer stand this evening. It was an eventful day to say the least.
No luck on Pheasants this morning but we did manage to bag some quail.
I headed to the stand around 2:30. Settled in @ 3:00. And had a fantastic hunt to start my 9 days off. Saw 5 bucks total. 2 shooters at dark.
All were chasing hard.
My phone died while taking pictures of the small 8 below and my video camera was dead.
I’ll be back at the same property in the morning with all batteries charged. I did manage to get some pics of my set too, before my phone died.

Stay tuned. If the rest of my hunts are like this evening, it ought to be a fantastic week!

Been in the stand since 5:50.
It’s breaking day and the woods are coming coming alive.
I’m back at the same property, but in a different set due to a N wind.
I put some time in the stand last year and passed a nice 9 point that I’m pretty sure is one of the shooters I saw yesterday at dark.

This property is planted in Milo this year and they just cut the fields last week. It ought to be loaded with deer.

I have the option to hunt several other properties but seeing what I saw yesterday has me wanting to put a couple of days here as I can hunt 2 different sets with any kind of East wind.

I’ll update pics of my set when I have better light.

I hear you, I have been making a list for the last month and I'm sure I will forget something. I always say to myself as long as I have my bow, license, camo and stands I can buy whatever else I need.

Looks like a great spot your hunting. Have fun.

My set is right on the edge of a wet creek. First 2 deer I saw today were running down the creek bed. Water splashing is a pretty distinctive indication that something is coming your way.
My stand faces the NE to the Milo field, but I have various shots in all directions

This is a good spot, but I’m pretty partial to the stand I was hunting in yesterday as I killed out of it 2 years ago.

I guess I’ll have to post the pics when I get better service.

Still pretty dead here.
This Norht Wind has a little chill to it.

Iím gonna sit til 4:00.

My friend that I hunt with here, Brian, Mom past away last week of Cancer. Visitations start @ 5:00.

Please say a prayer for Brian and his family.
He was all smiles and good spirits when I arrived Friday and yesterday while we bird hunting. But I know it is painful to lose any family member.

Iíll update at 4:00.

Settled in and it’s breaking daylight.
Pheasants are cutting up on the neighbors farm.
32 deg and it feels awesome. Is a great morning for a buck to slip up and get killed.

I’m back at the set where I had a great hunt Saturday evening.
South East wind blowing in my face is perfect.

It’s a beautiful morning to be in a tree stand!

Stay tuned. Hopefully we can get it done today.

My set is on the North edge of an intersection of 2 creeks. Itís major travel corridor where multiple trails meet. Milo has been planted and cut on both sides of the creeks. There are several scrapes and rubs up & down the wood line.

I killed a 133Ē 9 point in this stand 2 years ago. Iím looking to upgrade this year.
