I didn't waste any time getting to Kansas. The previous hunters are all tagged out with record book bucks and Kent invited me here early. I already did the morning hunt and saw 15 different bucks including two shooters and 3 buck fights! So it's on!

I'm hunting a giant this year. They have several booners on cam this year.

As much as you HATE coyotes, instead of swapping out arrows, I would think you’d simply re-assign your #1 to coyote duty.

From: Pat Lefemine

From: Pat Lefemine

Just passed a mature 10. He’ll be a 170 next year

From: JTV

Why have a 'special' arrow just for 'yotes ?? ... it takes to long to 'swap' 'em out, just kill the damn things with what your loaded with .... you do carry more than 1 'deer arrow' dont you ?? ... Hint : any arrow you can use for deer you can use for 'yotes .... just sayin'

From: Michael

I used to do the ol arrow swap for coyotes till it costed me a coyote. Now #1 flies no matter what.

Boubound x2. I rattled a real nice buck in this morning from the ground in the black hills of South Dakota. Unfortunately he circled and winded me. It's worth a shot to tickle the tines though.

09-Nov-19
I can see why you wouldn't though because usually you are just educating deer. Like I did today and Kent probably doesn't want that. Either way, good luck.

Congrats on another great buck . I’d like to see a pic of all your deer mounts you’ve done a live hunt with over the years.

From: INbowdude
10-Nov-19
Pat, Congrats on 2 great bucks. Just a couple of questions and feel free to pass on these if you want. I am curious what you do with all that venison? Do you take some and donate the rest or take it all, or donate it all? Secondly, I'm sure you have a ton of nice bucks and racks from years of hunting. What do you do with bucks like these? Do you do Euro's, shoulder mounts or just take the antlers for a later use? Thanks.

From: Bou'bound
10-Nov-19
You are becoming as lethal and predictably consistent in taking tremendous bucks as lee Lakosky. Very impressive. Piling up the monster bucks annually is a real accomplishment. Might as well go to Illinois on the way back and shoot another It’s on the way back. Charlie knows where to go there. Congrats.

From: BullBuster
10-Nov-19
Hard to tell by pictures provided, but I suspect that’s a 4.5 yo, although possibly 3.5.

From: leo17

Congratulations Pat on a great buck. The other Bowsiter arrived last night. I’m sitting in the tree belt right now. It’s the same spot that I saw multiple bucks from last evening. I heard an intense fight going on last night. I mean these 2 were absolutely hammering each other.

From: Huntcell
10-Nov-19
Didn’t you notice the broken tine and crab claws? Lee Lakosky wouldn’t look twice at that buck. Put it on his watch list for a ranch hand management buck if those crab claws don’t disappear in one or two years.

I would shoot that buck in a heartbeat. That being said, I am a bit surprised you killed him. Not even close to your target buck. Congratulations nonetheless! Thanks for sharing. I am also curious why the other two stooges didn't make it this time.

Forest, I know the feeling. I had does under me and could only video the buck's approach from a distance. He has more mass than my target buck and he also had a kicker on his left G2 - same as my target buck. Tines and configuration looked similar - from a distance. The target buck was at that stand last night so I was convinced it was the same buck. As he approached, I was in kill mode. Did not look at the antlers once as he got close. Had I been able to pull my binocs up I would have noticed that broken g3 and passed him up. But, I never looked since I was sure it was him. I concentrated on the shot and I hammered him.

Am I disappointed with the buck? Not at all. He's a great buck. Do I feel a little stupid? Absolutely. As to his age, nobody here thinks he's 3.5. The general consensus is 5.5. If you see his rack and how beaded and massive it is you would agree. Regardless, we will find out as I popped his tooth and will be sending to DeerAge.com.

Now for the best part. I got to hunt yotes this morning and successfully called in one. That little bastard no longer walks the earth! And I'm going back out to kill some more.

What a great hunt!

From: Shuteye
10-Nov-19
Congrats Pat, you are doing great. The picture of the buck up in the air reminded me of Saturday morning when I made two orphans. I put a bolt through an old doe and she did that jump. I knew instantly that she was dead on her feet. Only went 40 yards and that was 71 that died from a Jak Hammer expandable broadhead. Ray Charles could have followed the blood trails. Both sides and down the middle from her nose. That was my target deer and have passed bucks to get her. I can't draw my compound any more so I went to a Ravin crossbow. I can't even play music any more due to cramps in my hands. Having deer heart stew for supper. I love a crock pot.

This morning was eventful to say the least. I had deer right from the beginning coming and going. Around 830 I look to my right and there he is standing 20 yards away. I had no idea how he got there. I also was not expecting a deer from that angle. I had to turn completely around and try to draw. Only problem was my safety harness was stuck around my left shoulder. The tree I was in was to large to tie my safety strap to so I had to tie in to the lifeline which was way off my shoulder and low. I saw the big wide frame and stood up to grab my bow and kneeled down to take tension off my harness. By now he’s at 7 yards. I draw and aim in one motion and watch my arrow disappear into his chest. He runs 30 yards and falls. That’s when I had to sit down. Keep in mind this all happened in less than 30 seconds from seeing to watching him fall. Thanks for having me kent and clay.

Yesterday was dead, very little movement. Seen 3 smaller bucks this morning and a few does. Been very bright the last couple nights with the full moon so I think they’re moving mostly at night.

13-Nov-19
Sean,

Last night I had zero pictures of deer using my small bean/rye grain plot at home. I have deer every night usually. I think they are in lock down for sure right now. At least in my area. And there were none at the gravity feeder with corn, again, very unusual. As those does finish breeding we should start seeing the action pick up again. Hang tough, it will happen. I know you know that, just trying to encourage you sir.

lol. Don’t skip the question!!! Explain the challenge of shooting deer over 100# of corn? I’m honestly curious.

From: leo17
14-Nov-19
First of all it’s way more than 100 pounds. Don’t insult me. 500 pounds is my minimum for hunting over. I’ll explain it to you when you explain why Something a stranger on the internet does bothers you so much.

Big

Explain the challenge of starting your own thread on baiting pros and cons instead of corrupting this one.

Here are the steps: Go to new topic and click on it. Pick a category. Type a title. Enter the first post. Hit submit.

Walllahh there you have it. Your very own thread to love and hug and make your very own for all time. Give it a whirl.

Hey Sean

Just curious. Are you seeing coyotes on you sits?

From: Bou'bound
14-Nov-19
For that matter Does anyone think a pile of corn(even a BIG one) will have any effect on a doe in the PEAK of the RUT?! Let it go and celebrate a pair of very large deer being taken by fellow Bowhunter’s.

From: Rocky D
14-Nov-19
Great thread every year and then we have the naysayers. If it’s legal then let it go. I believe when other hunters condemn others over legal methods that it is nothing but envy that drive the individuals that do so.

I believe that some people try define themselves by their methods while others define themselves by trying to limit the methodology of others.

From: Grey Ghost

"For that matter Does anyone think a pile of corn(even a BIG one) will have any effect on a doe in the PEAK of the RUT?!"

Yes. And where the does go in the rut, the bucks will follow.

Leo,

Just so you and I are clear, I don't hate hunting over bait. I just don't understand the appeal.

That said, I truly hope you fulfill your hunting desires.

Grey Ghost. I completely understand. I just love hunting. I left Kansas and went to Illinois where I sat 3 days over natural funnels and saw some great deer. No shots. Of course baiting gives hunters an advantage. I dont deny that. I just dont have a problem with it. I don’t claim to be some super hunter. The guys that deserve the credit are kent and clay. They put countless hours in. I was just fortunate enough to be at the right place at the right time.

I was wondering about the coyote activity up there when the deer are slow vs here.

When our deer go underground so do our predators. Don't see coyote-fox-cats and even the hawks and eagles are not as active

Good luck tomorrow. Knock it out early!!

Well I was hoping to make my own holy crap post but unfortunately that's not happening. Thursday night I had a giant come in chasing a doe. He stopped at 22 yards but was facing me, I came to full draw as he turned towards the doe and when he stopped I settled the pin behind the shoulder. Right when I hit the release he went after the doe again. I thought the hit was a little back but did not get a pass through so thought I may have caught the offside shoulder. I watched him run off with the arrow still in him. Kent arrived about 25 min later and we looked for blood but did not find any. It was gonna be plenty cold so we decided to wait until morning. The next morning Clay and I started looking for blood and found it pretty quick. We were able to follow it pretty easily in some places but then it would slow down in others. We spent the whole day tracking but found no deer. We came back the next morning and tracked him another 300ish yards before the deer stood in a spot long enough for a decent size puddle to form but it clotted there and we never found any more. We did have a guy come with a drone to help search the CRP fields but again came up empty. So that's where my story ends for now. I drove home last night with the hope that sometime in the next couple weeks I get a call saying he's been found or that hes turned back up on a trail cam.

Thanks for your honesty. It has happened to me, and it is a terrible feeling. Sorry!

Sorry Sean, that sucks. It's a tough thing but something we've all likely gone through.

thanks for taking us along with you

I'm surprised your outfitter doesn't know that is illegal in Kansas.
