Default Quick trip to Kansas paid off

We got to our farm Saturday morning and set some stands in prep for the rut. We weren’t expecting a lot of movement, but since the season was open, and the bow was in the truck we jumped into one of our sets and it paid off! This big lady came down the trail and presented an 18 yard shot. She made it 40 yards into the beans and piled up. My Bride laid down some great footage as always. This is by far the biggest doe I have ever killed.

Enjoy!

I have no clue. A scale, hitch gambrel and more gym time is in the works. I had to drag her about 250 yards through the standing beans... I was wore out.

NOTHING in the world makes you realize how bad out of shape you are than dragging a dead deer. I bet dragging that big girl 200 yds was a freakin job....

Awesome. Nothing like those big wheat/bean fed Midwest does when it comes to eating.

My stand is less than 1 mile from KS border in far NW OK. Every year we pick one day during rifle season that we all can use only lever action, open sight rifle, does only and we pitch in $100 bucks. Biggest doe wins it all. You’d be amazed at the weights we have gotten over the years.

Well done! Those Kansas girls run on the hefty side.

I killed this fat-bottomed girl in Cowley County, KS back in 2006. You could see where she was grazed by an arrow across her shoulders not long before I took her down.
