The season is all but over here in Kansas and most parts of the country, it was a great year of Kansas deer hunting. I hope you all had a great year and wish you the very best in 2012.
Kansas Deer Hunting
Right now there is an extended deer hunting firearm season going until the 8th of January here in Kansas. So it’s not to late to get out and try to fill that freezer with some tasty venison. I really like the way that Kansas deer hunting is set up for whitetails. I think that is why they have so many big bucks is because the rifle season is short and not during the rut which leaves a small window to kill a big buck with a gun and let’s them survive longer and reach a mature age where they can reach their full potential. That and the fact that they have plenty of food sources to help them make it through the tough winters. I love the fact that I can bow hunt big bucks during the rut without them being pressured into being nocturnal from all of the guns going off in the woods during the rut. I think Kansas got it right and it shows with the number of big bucks they have and the size of the bucks hunters kill there every year. I would put Kansas at the top of my list with a hand full of other great states like Illinois, Iowa, Ohio, Wisconsin, and a few more. So if you still need to fill that freezer and you can hunt in Kansas here are a couple of the seasons still open for harvesting does.
