Default Kansas Live!

Ok, dadgummit I can't stand it! Headed to Kansas on Sunday for the week after a big ole bruiser! Can't hardly stand it, so I'm starting the thread now.

Will have the muzzleloader in tow again this year as my wall needs some balancing! After a zero two years ago with the bow, I need to fill some tags. Will probably take the bow next year, but this year the smoke pole will be burning! My avatar buck was from last years Kansas trip and I hope to do as good or better next week. The weather is looking rather warm, but that didn't stop them from showing their faces last year. Should get this party rolling Sunday morning when we head north!

Headed out in T minus 12 hours. Will be hunting tomorrow evening, so a bruiser could be down 24hrs from now!

I have a feeling it's going to be a long drive. I won't get a lot of sleep tonight I'm afraid!

It wasn't fair the last 2 years and it still isn't. Keep me posted buddy. I'm jealous. Tell your boss this trip is on my birthday every year. Maybe he'll sympathize. In the mean time. I'll just sit her on graveyards at work.

In Kansas myself right now. Unit 1/2 tag so staying in Goodland and hunting North and South from there. Very hot all last week in 90's, but cooled off last night and today. The little bit of rain helped quiet it down some in the creek bottoms. Lots of WT does seen and Mule Deer, but big WT bucks have been scarce. Gonna give it a few more days, then the wife and I will head south to Texas.

Man, we've been in a hurry all day! As soon as we pulled in, we changed clothes and got in the truck. Pulling into my stand now. Should be settled in here in the next 10-15 min.

I may have missed it, but what smoke pole are you shooting? Never hunted Kansas so is it very strict on type and style of muzzle loader? Good Luck to You.
