Default Bowhunting giants live in Kansas

I flew into Wichita at noon today to meet up with my hunting buddies that have been here since last Wednesday. One of them shot a doe this morning, but it's been slow other than that. Should bust wide open in a day or 3. Hang on to your hats, we've got Killin to do.

Been in a tree for about 45 min and already came to full draw. Pretty blonde coyote wasn't worth boogering up my spot, she she lives another day and I put it down as another cool experience in the deer woods. We've got until Thanksgiving.

I’m living Kansas dreams thru you and several others this season.
First time since 2013 that I’m not hunting Kansas.
My choice though. I bought points for me, Summer & Talen. Hoping to take them in 2023.

If I'm not mistaken someone on here killed a coyote or bobcat one year and got a ticket for not having the proper license for that critter. It may be a good thing you didn't shoot it.

Bobcat, and that thread saved me some trouble a few years later.

Things are really heating up here in Franklin County. Scrapes are popping up everywhere and so are rubs.
Good luck

Same spot this morning. Pretty sure the doe that was with that buck last night was hot, and if there's a hot doe around, no reason for me not to be. It's 24* this morning and as still as I can ever remember in Kansas. When I walked in I could hear a deer freshening up a scrape by my stand. He couldn't see me so I just waited there until he moved b off before climbing in. Been quiet since, but it's way early.

Been watching a 170's looking 10 dog a doe since I pushed send on last reply. He's headed towards an empty stand, that had a hunter in it all day yesterday. Go figure. Think one of our hunters will be there this evening. Hard to get a good pic from 400 yards away with a 20 yr old video camera.

It's all on you Chase. I tagged out this morning. I just wish his rack matched his body size. 236 on the hoof, dressed 180.
Following along and waiting to see you post up a Toad...

It's been a busy day, but I'm back at it. Got down for a wind switch, turned into grocery run, maintenance on buggy, trailing and skinning a doe a friend shot, to now back in a tree. New set on a choke point between a creek bank, cut corn, and big timber. I passed 4 or 5 fresh scrapes walking in. They're opening up everywhere. The big buck I saw this morning probably could have been shot from the stand I'm in. Saw another real big deer in this block of timber about 1/2 mile north of here around lunch today. Keith is at the railroad about a 3/4 of a mile south of me on same creek. He's where the big buck looked like he was headed. Anyhow, here's a few pics of my set.
