Since this is my blog I felt obligated to add my own comments to this post but my friend Michael Pearce has done such a perfect job describing and photographing it that no further comment is necessary. I’m grateful to Michael for allowing me to use his text and excellent photos. My young friends/cousins, Isaac, 17, …

Two big Kansas whitetails
Think these two big guys will make it through hunting season? If they stay nocturnal they just might. But if they start thinking with their gonads they’ll both wind up on the wall of some guy’s mancave.
A Typical Atypical Rack
I’ve never shot a deer with a truly atypical rack. I once shot a little buck with only one antler but I figured he was born with a standard rack and had half of it knocked off in a fight. I’ve shot a few bucks with more points on one side than the other but …
Another big Kansas Whitetail buck
When this big Kansas whitetail buck was born The Lord told him, “Son, I’ve got good news and bad news. The good news is that I’m giving you a BRAIN. It’s a wonderful thing. You can use it to find food and to keep from getting shot by some redneck with a rifle or bow. …
Still MORE big Kansas bucks
My friend Scott calls the deer in the first nighttime photo the Crabclaw buck. He only poses for the trail cam at night. Scott has been watching this buck for three years as it grows. As you can see by how roughed up he is, this buck is a fighter. The daylight photo below appears to …
Trailcam photos of Kansas white tail bucks just keep coming. These beautiful shots came from my friend Jon Blumb whose camera hung on a tree somewhere in northeast Kansas. It’s funny how sometimes deer almost seem to be mugging for the camera.

More pics from Scott’s fleet of trail cams covering most of eastern Kansas. And of course, to Scott, these are “non shooters”. Do you think deer have a sense of humor? One buck is licking the tree with the camera on it.

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 …
Venison recipe: Step one….
Venison recipe: First shoot one deer….This nice northeast Kansas eight point buck fell to long time friend and fellow OWAA member Jon Blumb. It’s always dangerous for a deer to walk within 40 yards of a guy in a tree stand with a 30.06.
