Whitetail Buck Hit Late Deer Hunting

I have been doing some last minute late deer hunting, and so far it has been tough me.

Late Deer Hunting

Yesterday afternoon I was able to go do some late deer hunting. I had one blowing at me and then I saw 4 does and then a small 6-point chasing them, but no big bucks.¬† We are going back to Georgia and by the time we get back to Kansas the season will be over. I may get to go one last time this afternoon or in the morning and that will be it for my season. Even though I haven’t harvested a whitetail buck this year I have enjoyed being out there getting after those big bucks. It can be tough when it’s late deer hunting.

This buck was hit by a car during late deer hunting season.

The other morning I was headed home from work at 5:30 a.m near one of my favorite properties that I hunt, when I saw a police car pulled over with his lights on. So I slowed down and when I got closer I saw a car in front of the police car and the front end was wrecked pretty bad, so I started scanning the area for a whitetail buck and as I passed the scene I saw an antler sticking up out of the grass. So I went down and turned around and went back by and I saw the rack better this time and it was huge. This area is known for big bucks. So I’m thinking I wonder if I could get the whitetail?

So I decide to stop and ask. I pulled up behind the police car and got out and asked him if I could have the Kansas monster, and he said sure. He gave me a special tag to put on it and helped me load it. It was in the twenties when i got home so I went to bed and when I got up I took pictures and field dressed him and was able to get two good hams and the tenderloins. I was surprised how good of shape the big bucks rack was in, it only had a scratch on the back side from being hit.
