More big Kansas white tail bucks

This big nocturnal, Kansas whitetail buck ,  antlers still in velvet, was hard to capture on one of my friend Scott Morgan’s many trail cams. Scott has several cameras scattered over a wide area near his home in eastern Kansas. He’s hoping to get a shot of a cougar that has been sighted in the vicinity. So far no luck on the cougar but lots of deer and turkey.

Back yard bucks

Long time friend and fellow Outdoor Writers Of Kansas member Dave Zumbaugh captured these whitetail bucks with a trail cam in his back yard. That’s right. His back yard! Dave lives in a semi-rural area of Johnson county, KS near Kansas City and is treated to sights like this on a regular basis.

No. He won’t let you bowhunt in his back yard.

 

 

 

 

Big Ness County, KS buck

One of my favorite deer hunters Scott Morgan bagged a nice buck recently in Ness County, KS. I’ll let Scott tell it.

“I bagged this bruiser on a trip last week to Ness county –  50 miles north of Dodge City. He won’t quite make the record book, in the mid 160s range. I waited him and a half dozen other whitetails out and took him right at the end of shooting hours on the 2nd day of the season, Dec. 4th. I got him at the confluence of the north and middle forks of Walnut creek. Just a short distance away Custer and 700 of his best friends camped in 1867. They eventually ended up at the Little Big Horn…”
