Kansas rifle deer hunts are during the toughest time to hunt them in Kansas. Bucks have been rutting hard for 5 weeks and are basically laying around taking it easy. Hunters need to spend a lot of time in the deep woods hoping for some mid-day activity. Of course, 90 percent of the hunters are sitting at the lodge while the deer are on a noon feeding pattern--especially in cold weather. When it gets down to zero degrees, you will get 3 feedings a day. This is also the time when the second rut kicks in, and there's a good chance you will see a lot of chasing and romancing--a great time to nail a buck of a lifetime. When it comes down to it, you need to come prepared for a hard hunt, stay out and hunt long hours, and you will have a great chance of filling your Kansas deer tag.
Time in the Field - Expect to spend a lot of time in the woods, because you can't kill a buck sitting in the lodge.
Location - We set up on scrape lines, pinch points, and feeders. Decoys work well here at certain times.
Scent Control - Scent control and working the wind a must.
Stands - We have treestands and ground blinds set up but you may need to place a hang-on stand in a slightly different location. We will help you and give you our best advice.
Scouting - We pre-scout for you, so make sure you are ready to shoot a potential monster.
Weapon - Your rifle of choice.
