Well gentlemen, the Kansas deer season has once again graced us with its presence. The days are getting shorter, and the temps more crisp. Soon the leaves will begin to fall, and our dreams of rutting bucks will become reality. I pray that we all have a safe, successful, and blessed hunting season. With that said, it’s time to climb a tree, fling some arrows, and get some meat hung on the pole! Best of luck to all, and share pictures of your successful harvests here.

Now that’s special! I’m a student at K-State and I often think about the wild elk that are just a few miles away, in the same county I’m in. Pretty darn cool.

I got out for a hunt yesterday afternoon, and the 40+ mph winds subsided just in time. It was a gorgeous evening, and at 5:00 I had the first deer come through; a great looking young 8 point. He came right under me at 10 yards. Following behind him just a few minutes later was a mature doe and two yearlings. I stuck the biggest doe, and she expired less than 100 yards later. The lord blessed me with fresh venison, and the first deer of the season. That backstrap sure tasted good last night!

From: Thornton

Great buck. I see you use Shwacker? Was recovery delayed due to broadhead failure?

From: FFZYarcher
04-Nov-20
Thanks guys!

sitO no film. I setup on the ground under the lip of a creek bank with slim to no cover and zero chance of filming successfully. The most uncomfortable sit/kneel/stand/lay down 2.5 hour hunt ever but worth the reward.

Thornton I used the same setup I had tuned for elk hunting this September. Had 125 grain NAP Hellrazor 3 blades flying like darts at 498 grains. Liver shot suspicion so I backed out immediately after the shot because I couldn’t convince myself of the exact placement in lower light. Indeed it was a liver shot. 100% believe I would have found this deer way easier on the track if I used shwacker. Have never had a failure with them nor lost a deer with them. In the back of my head the entire time of dissecting a good to bad to good to bad blood trail I was wishing I’d switched to the shwacker for deer. To each their own.

From: Thornton
05-Nov-20
Awesome buck for sure, especially from the ground. I asked about Shwacker because the one time I used one, I lost a buck because it failed to penetrate the thin edge of the scapula. I shot him later in rifle season with a 308 and was able to see the minimal damage if the broadhead.

From: Kansan

Thanks guys, I'm still in awe!

be still--I found him 2-300 yards from where I shot him as the crow flies. The blood trail took us on a estimated 1200 yard wild goose chase. Back and forth, up and down, ziggity zag, circle here circle there with no beds. He was down where he finally bedded.

From: be still
05-Nov-20
Thanks for sharing....always interested in how far deer make it on each shot. I’ve made the mistake before not waiting long enough after the shot. Congrats again on a special deer and sounds like where you was sitting and how you took him made for an exciting hunt.

From: TwoDogs@work
05-Nov-20
Chris: Congratulations to your son. The first one will always be special. Zack: That is definitely a buck of a lifetime. I am surprised he did not bed sooner. The deer I liver shot always wanted to bed fairly quickly. It sounds like that buck just simply refused to give up.

Couldn't let me son have all the fun. Was on the fence about shooting this deer, but changed my mind after a soft series of grunts he was standing broadside at 5 yards looking the opposite direction. Now to get my daughter on the board.

This will be a story to remember. This will be a fun video to edit as the story began midday, November 11th. I was lucky enough to encounter this buck while checking trail camera cards just trying to figure out my next move. After having my sights set on another old buck in another area, this guy showed himself as I was walking in to check a camera. The story is too long to type, but I hope to edit the footage and will provide a link if you are interested to find out how this all came together. November 12th, 3:05 P.M. Get out there all and good luck! Great bucks taken on here this year and congratulations to all of you lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time. Have fun, don't take it too serious and enjoy God's creation.

I just wanted to say thanks for the kind words and congratulations to all of the great animals on this thread. Keep grinding for those of you with a tag in the pocket or app. It can change in a matter of seconds.

I know a few of you asked to see the footage, so here is a link. Don't beat me up too bad. I have always said I don't try to do it for any other reason than to remember the hunt and this one is an example of that. The audio isn't the best, again, I know. I would recommend ear buds, but if not, I hope you understand. I did forget the wind screen on day 2, so no excuse for that, but the wind was ripping. Anyway, always fun to relive the moment through the lens. See link for the video.

From: Sand man
19-Nov-20
Agree withTejas.

I have a recurve that I have yet to kill anything with. Being my buck tag has been filled I intend to give it a try to harvest a doe. With the price of meat these days, I’ve elected to hold off until I get one doe with the compound as a little “insurance” first so I hope I’ll get the opportunity to take one over the weekend. I feel I might just get a shot if I can get out with the recurve PRE ORANGE ARMY days. After that “hunting” takes place calm and close begins to get a little less common..

From: Thornton

I've had the opposite experience SandMan. I've shot 2 nice bucks after rifle season. They seem to go back to regular pre rut feeding patterns.

From: Chubbs34

I think it depends on hunting pressure, whether you see the deer calm down after rifle season or not. I'm blessed to hunt an area with little pressure and see the deer relax quickly after the boom sticks are put away.

Kyle, I am admittedly a terrible picture taker. I was solo hunting, called my brother to help but he was rounding up cattle to move to winter pastures so no help there. Tried my dad, no answer..so loaded myself. Found out later his phone had died, but he watched me drive to the creek to load up, the whole time wondering what I was doing. I'll put a back of the truck picture up, but dont like those as much.

Passed this deer up twice this year from the stand. Was walking in at noon on veterans day and he had a doe penned up under my stand. Decided if I could sneak up on him I would try to shoot him as he was an older buck. Got within 30 and shot him, thought the shot was good but he kept going and never really bleed. Got him on camera last week and hoped I would get a second try at him. Tonight he came in and I finished what I started a couple weeks ago. Not the biggest but over 6.5 years old and I didn't see anything bigger. The white spot above tonight's shot is where I hit him a couple weeks ago.

He actually broke off his antler right after his G2, kind of a bummer. I debated whether to shoot him or not since he was broke up, but he is an ancient deer, well passed his prime.

My fiancé was determined to get a buck this year. She worked hard to practice and put time in the field with me. After 6 hunts together, we got the opportunity we were looking for. A 17 yard broadside shot on a beautiful buck over fresh snow. She made a perfect heart shot and we watched him fall after a 70ish yard final sprint. It has been a season for the books and needless to say we are beyond blessed. A wonderful first deer she was able to fill her tag on!
