Deer Hunting Right Around Corner

Well it won’t be long now and it will be time to go deer hunting. It has been a rough dry hot summer here in the mid-west to say the least. It has been the hottest summer I have ever experienced and we need some rain here in Kansas bad. It has cooled off a little lately though and I have been able to get my stands put up and trail cameras out and I’m just about all set up and ready to do some deer hunting. Fall can’t get here soon enough, I have never been so ready for fall to arrive as I am now.

Putting Out Trail Cameras

I have had some nice bucks on my trail cameras lately and it has been fun watching them grow their antlers.

This great buck is showing up at one of my favorite deer hunting honey holes.

I have several cameras out now and I’m hoping to start getting more pictures of big bucks showing up now that the weather is not so hot. Just this past weekend I put out five more stands and a few more cameras and several Trophy Rocks and I have started feeding them in several of my honey holes so I should start getting more trail camera pictures of some nice whitetails. I have got most of my shooting lanes trimmed and the hard work is mostly done and I can stay out of my spots except to feed them and check trail cameras. I like to only go in to my stand sites during the middle of the day to check trail cameras and put out food for the whitetails. I like there to be as little as possible commotion in the woods during the weeks leading up to and during the season. Those big bucks didn’t get big by being dumb and the less they are disturbed the better in my opinion. I can’t wait to to go deer hunting and try to match wits with these big Kansas bruisers.

My 2011 Kansas Deer

Last season was a great season for me and one that I won’t ever forget. I was able to film my self shooting a big Kansas 11 pointer in October.I wanted to share the video of my Kansas buck here.

Potential Kansas State Record Typical Whitetail With A Bow

Also I filmed my good buddy and fellow DHBB Pro-Staffer Troy Redner shoot what we believe would have been very close to a Kansas state record typical whitetail with a bow. Unfortunately we never found the buck we named “Horn Donkey”. He was by far the biggest buck I have ever seen when in the woods. I was also able to film several other nice bucks last season and it made for a wonderful season for me here in Kansas. Now I am looking forward to getting some more great whitetail footage this season to share with you. It should be another great year.

Last Minute Whitetail Bucks

Rattling can be a very effective technique for calling whitetail bucks.

last minute whitetail

Hunting a big last minute whitetail can be a real challenge.

Last minute whitetail bucks can be tough to get, tomorrow good Lord willing I will be getting after some last minute whitetail deer. It will be my final attempt of the year at harvesting one of those big boys.

Last Minute Whitetail

I have had a great season getting after those trophy bucks, I sure hate it when the season comes to an end, but I have had another fun year chasing deer and was able to see quite a few deer. I saw a lot of whitetails this year while deer hunting and made plenty of great memories in the field. It is always fun to look back on those memories and recall all of the big whitetail bucks we encountered in the past. Even though some of those memories are of the one’s that got away.

Trail cameras are a great scouting tool to help you figure out deer patterns.

Any time I encounter a big trophy it is something I remember weather or not I was able to harvest him. I think I can remember every single encounter I have had with a big brute. It is just hard to forget something like that. That’s what makes deer hunting so special is all of the great memories we make getting after those willy creatures. Do you remember most of your encounters with the big boys? They are hard to forget aren’t they? Did you have a good season this year? For me being able to harvest a big boy is just the icing on the cake to having a great season. Even if I didn’t get a big boy it was still a great season being in the great outdoors smelling the fresh air, watching the sunrise, and spending good quality time with family and friends. That is why I think it is important to get those young children involved in the great outdoors, and pass along the great American heritage. I think it is important to teach them about preserving wildlife and its habitat, so future generations will be able to enjoy the great outdoors for years to come just as we have.

 

Potential World Record Deer

Can you imagine being the lucky hunter harvesting a world record deer? We all dream about one day harvesting a trophy buck deer hunting. Heck most of us would love just to see a big deer. Every year many hunters harvest big bucks. Just think what it would be like taking a world record deer hunting. These days it probably change your whole life if you were fortunate enough to do that. I have heard of  hunters taking big bucks and then getting many different lucrative offers to put the story on TV hunting shows, in magazines, or advertising products such as scents, bows, guns, calls, and many other items, and sharing your story about the deer. But imagine the way your life would change if you harvested the biggest typical or non typical buck in the world. I imagine for the most part it would be a positive thing to happen for someone, but I also think it could have it’s negative aspects as well.

World Record Deer

Recently I heard about a humongous whitetail harvested in Buffalo County Wisconsin, that is a potential world record deer. I guess we will find out after the 60 day drying period for big bucks to be officially scored. I imagine the man’s life has been kind of crazy since he took the whitetail. I bet his phone is ringing off the hook!

Hunting world record deer

A food plot can make your property more attractable to deer. Maybe even a world record deer.

The deer will go nocturnal when pressured.

I am going on a hunt this Tuesday morning, and I am planning on taking my camera and camcorder to get some good footage to share with everyone. It has been rainy this weekend and is supposed to rain tomorrow then Tuesday is supposed to be nice and cold. So hopefully the weather will get the big boys moving again. Also, the does that were not bred during the first estrous cycle should be coming back in heat soon, and that should get the monsters back on the prowl again. Our food plots are looking really good and we are seeing quite a few whitetails using them. The later it gets during the season the more attractive they seem to be, since the other food sources become less abundant. The great thing about having food plots is that they provide year round nutrition for the herd when other food sources diminish.
