Yup, you've got to be OK with winding up with an expensive whitetail tag. I'm hoping for the muley permit but definitely not counting on it.I haven't convinced anyone to go with me yet. I have a couple points. I really truly only want to draw in to hunt Mule deer. But its a long shot and you have to hunt the tag or forfeit the cash and to me thats ridiculous.
Greenwood county is beautiful country though! I live NW of Wichita about half an hour and go through there from time to time. Never hunted, but it sure looks good.We have access to private property in Greenwood county, and haven’t been there in 4 years. I figure between my dad and myself we sat a combined 600 hours over the course of 5 seasons. All days were between November 1 and 16. Age structure has gone downhill and so have deer numbers. With the increased license cost last year, it’s not that appealing to make the trip anymore. Still love Kansas, it’s an amazing place
Yep, he nailed it from what I've seen. Last week of November is the latest I've seen second cycle activity the last few years. Pray for super cold weather and the hunting will be good. First year I hunted NW KS the weather was cold and brutal. Best year we have had for deer hunting. Been warmer every year and haven't seen the age class. This is, of course, limited to NW KS where I hunt. Further east I have some buddies that run lots of protein and corn feeders year round, food plots, and lots of ag fields around. They have a lot better luck, but they are also managing for those deer.Fink definitely the latter in the evenings. Last 15 min big boys will hit the food sources after all the other deer have been out for hours
