2018 Kansas Archery & Rifle Whitetail Season Wrap-up

December 11, 2018 by

2018 was a darned good deer hunting year. We had a few disappointments, but had a lot of great days to offset them.

2018 Kansas Rifle Whitetail Deer Season

The Rader Lodge rifle season opened with rut still rolling and lead us to our must successful season ever at Rader Lodge.  During the first split of rifle season, we killed 13 bucks for 14 hunters The second split, we went 5 bucks for 8 hunters. Many deer in the 140 class and some in 150 class.

Greg Norton killed a biggie.

2018 Kansas Archery Whitetail Deer Season

The bowhunting was decent overall but wasn’t at the peak of the success we’ve seen in years past. We had a bunch of guys that didn’t draw tags in our first split of rut.  Which just left a few hunters in camp who shot a couple of really great bucks.  The 2nd split saw them on lockdown, however we still had plenty of opportunities.  Bowhunting can be a game of inches and saw us connect of few giants (160+) that we couldn’t end up tracking down and getting our hands on.

Keith Rogers took this great buck. Congrats. Rut is kicking on here. Should be a fun 2 weeks. We will keep the buck updates coming.

Seth Cole from Mississippi took this Whitetail stud by stalking him in CRP grass!
