Default Kansas Unit 11 Live Hunt

After a 12 hour drive and a sleepless night, I have arrived at the Hunting grounds. Light NW wind, 43* and partly cloudy. A little rain overnight should have the bucks refreshing scrapes and on their feet.
About to gather my gear and make the 15 min walk in. Starting in a natural ground blind over looking some hand corn and 5 trails.
More to come after sunrise.

Let's do this...

Only one so far back in the timber. Couldn't make out what it was. Wind has died and and the sun is peeking over the tree tops

Son just left Kerrville, driving up solo, headed to Unit 14. My buddy and I are leaving Tuesday morning and will meet him. We were there from Oct 31st and returned home on Nov 6th. Very little big buck movement that week, mostly at night. They finally had a hard freeze so most of the leaves should be gone and visibility should be better to lay eyes on movement. I have never gone up this late before, so we shall see.

Gonna sit till 9, then scout and put up another stand. Looking at a Ridgeline and creek bottom
Wind has shifted a little here and it is not a good wind for this set up. West wind blows right into the clearing.
Not sure yet about the evening hunt, will know more later
More to come

Good luck! We are headed back home after being up there for a week they were on their feet moving pretty good for a few days. Weather sucked for the most part except for the last couple days.

Not this year, didn't draw and had twins oct 4th. I paid my dues to keep my spot on the lease. Other 2 guys are up there now, both have killed a doe, and one killed a decent 8 this morning.

Saw several mature bucks locked down with does and sme cruising as well last week. Dad killed a pretty good one Friday evening. Had a few close calls just couldn't get them in the right spots had one of our shooters locked down 150 yards from me. Never would come my way and for the first time in Kansas for me there was zero wind to try to stalk him.

Find a spot with a good wind and hunt on the ground if your sets are not huntable. Local friend up there has killed a couple of toads hunting in one of those cheap folding chairs tucked beside a tree. Better than missing a hunt.

Wind has DIED out there this evening. Going to be on a hardwood ridge in the morning. Lots of sign and hope to catch one slipping through

I'm not sure. We came up Friday morning and they were chasing then. Reports the week prior were no chasing yet, so I'd say they started in the jar 4-5 days

Hunt #2 of 10. Back on the hardwood ridge line I hunted last year. Wind isn't great but not terrible. Got a all day sit ahead me.
Current temp is 44* with a feels like of 37. Clear skies and light wind.

I think today will show some action.
More to come after sunrise

Sun is trying to ease up. This set up looks really good. To the east is a small creek, the west is a cedar thicket, north is hardwoods and 40 yards south is a pasture.
Normal pattern have the deer following the ridge line the turning west to bed.
Let's see if they follow that pattern.
More to come

Got a bite to eat now back on stand. 68*, clear skies, and a SW wind at 12, gusting to 18.
Had 4 young bucks come through this morning, now let's see if the big boys will move.
More to come from the Hardwood Ridge in Linn County Kansas

Only 2 small young bucks this evening. The 2nd was chasing a doe and wasn't hearing it.
Be back at it in the morning.
