Whitetails Late Season Food Sources

I grew up deer hunting whitetails in Georgia and we didn’t get much snow and I never got to hunt in it. Well I moved to Kansas and all that changed. The snow has arrived here in Kansas and it got me thinking about the whitetails and how they survive the tough winter conditions.

The bucks need to regain weight lost during the last month or so and the does are pregnant and need to consume enough food to feed two. So if you have food plots where you hunt that is the place to find whitetails. Especially this time of year when the hard frosts that have happened across much of the country have killed most of the green … Continue reading

Giant Kansas Whitetail

Well, I went and checked my trail camera today and I can’t tell you how excited I am to see a giant Kansas whitetail on my trail camera. Giant Kansas Whitetail Pictures I got a giant Kansas whitetail on the trail camera right behind my house.

DHBB Pro-Staffer Troy will be here next week and we will be trying to get the giant Kansas whitetail on film deer hunting in the mid-west.
