    Well after not drawing a tag last year I am headed back to western Kansas for the firearm season. Anybody else going this year? Curious to see how the herd is doing, will update post when I get out after Thanksgiving and start scouting

    It's on the list for next yr with my brother in law. Giving wy a break for a yr, are you hunting public land? How is the hunting pressure during gun?

    I am hunting private land. Most of the pressure on public land in Kansas that I have seen is just from road hunters

    Made it out to western Kansas and spent the afternoon glassing the property we hunt. Saw plenty of deer and several shooter bucks. 1 8 pt that will push 160. Season opens Wednesday!

    Well 2 days until opening morning. We have all our blinds and sets ready for the predominant nw wind expected the first week. All the crops are harvested this year already. Mule deer numbers seem to be way up here in western Kansas but whitetails are down. We are fortunate to have a great piece of land that always holds a good population of whitetails. Had a 160 class buck tending a doe while we were setting a blind yesterday. Hopefully find a few pheasants and prairie dogs today!

    Hey Bob! Give me a shout when you get back; if the launches aren’t frozen we’ll give Erie a go.

    Good luck, there was three of us from Birch Run that made that trek quite often when we drew tags. We moved our hunts to western Kansas also. Its been a few years since I went back. Now hunting NW Missouri.

    Due to deer numbers, hunting pressure, something else?

    Really it came down to something else. I also started going back to SK again.
    The Missouri hunting is just about what i saw in KS. My last big buck in the states did come from muzzle loading in Kansas.
