Kansas tends to be synonymous with big whitetail bucks. Every year I visit family in Kansas and hunt deer while there. It is deer hunting Mecca for this Montana boy. This was a different year and the deer weren’t behaving as they normally did. Though the season was on, I chose to scout from the outside edge of the property but wasn’t turning up many deer. It was like the switch was flipped. I had just come from my in-laws in Indiana and the deer were laying low and recuperating from the rut and I had hardly seen a critter there. I was fearful that this was the case in Kansas as well.
