The annual Monster Buck Classic We Are Kansas deer hunting extravaganza was a great show and yes there were plenty of Kansas monster bucks.
The doors opened Friday afternoon at the ExpoCentre in Topeka on January 26, 2014 to a good crowd of avid deer hunters and vendors and it was a fun filled weekend. With the name Monster Buck Classic the deer hunting show lived up to it’s name and there were plenty of big Kansas brutes to be seen.
The Monster buck contest had some awesome entries and there was a new King of Kansas non-typical crowned as Lucas Cochren’s 238 4/8″ King of Kansas Non-Typical fell to the a non-typical buck taken by Cade Hays with a net score of 239 7/8″, a small 1 and 1/8 inches difference! Both are awesome bucks.
There was so many great venders this year with some really cool hunting products. I saw so many good deer hunting products and will definitely be getting a few of them to get ready for next season. One of my favorite products was the INFERNOEPS™ element protection system. It is a cold weather suit that easily makes into a backpack and I tell you I was impressed with all the features. Hopefully I will be able to do a product review on this bad boy, very nice. If you get a chance go by and check out INFERNOTEK.
There were many great seminars and and the headliners were Mike Hunsucker and the Heartland Bowhunter tv show cast, Matt and Jessie Duff co-hosts the popular Friends of NRA television show on the Outdoor Channel, Grant Woods wildlife biologist, Miss Kansas Theresa Vail, Dan Thurston of Drury’s Bow Madness, Torry Cook world champion predator caller, Steven Fuller host of “The Huntin Grounds”, Zac Cooper Little man big dreams, Marian Kincaid of the television reality series “Mudcats”.
It was nice to get to know some of them a little and talk deer hunting. And one of my favorite events was the celebrity bow shoot. Dan Thurston, Matt Duff, Mike Hunsucker and the Heartland Bowhunter crew all did some great shooting with there bows. Matt Duff did great even though he borrowed someone else’s bow to shoot.
We had a great time at the Monster buck Classic this year and look forward to another great show next year. I’m already getting ready for next deer season and plan on doing all I can to get a big Kansas brute with my bow on film and hopefully he’ll be big enough to take one of the King of Kansas crowns. I might as well dream big!
It was a great deer hunting show in Topeka January 24-26 at the Monster Buck Classic, the big news was a new non typical king of Kansas whitetail was crowned. The big buck is a beautiful whitetail that all deer hunters dream about taking some day. The Monster Buck Classic had some impressive bucks brought in over the 3 day event. It is always fun to see all the monster Kansas bucks brought in to be scored and some entered into the Monster buck contest.
Non Typical King of Kansas Whitetail
The reigning champ Lucas Cochren’s 238 4/8″ King of Kansas Non-Typical fell to the new reigning King of Kansas Non-Typical buck killed by Cade Hays with a gross Boone & Crockett score of 247″ and net score of 239 7/8″, only a slight difference of 1 and 1/8 inches! Talk about close. Cade had a video from a trail camera of the big brute rubbing a tree and had the actual tree as a pedestal to hold the mount, it was really impressive.
Both Lucas and Cade’s bucks are amazing bucks and are once in a lifetime bucks. Congratulations to both of them for taking such beautiful bucks!
Don Parr’s Typical King of Kansas another amazing monster buck held on as the King of Kansas typical (194 6/8 net) for at least another year. What a stud typical buck, congratulations to Don for retaining the King of Kansas typical once again. To see this buck in person is just really impressive, the G2’s and 3’s are just crazy long.
It will be fun to see how long the King of Kansas bucks can hang on to their crowns. One thing is for sure when it comes to monster bucks Kansas has them. So you never know what you might see show up at the “Monster buck Classic We Are Kansas” deer hunting show next year.
