Title: Kansas Hunt. Now with a story and Pics.
Post by: cajnhuntr on November 14, 2011, 08:55:00 PM
I have a fellow Louisiana trad hunter and friend who goes by the name of Swampghost that has taken a giant of a buck in Kansas over the weekend. I would show a pic but I am going to let him do the honors when he is back home. If anyone else on the site knows Corey, let him know you want him to post some pics and tell the story. Congrats again Corey, you are having a terrific season.

I'm known here as Basinboy Mr Tony.
Here's the story and pics.

Well let me start off by saying I'm humbly Blessed by the good Lord!
I have trail cam pics of this buck back from 09. Didnt get any of him in 2010. Thought he got killed. I hunted a spot this morning that I had pics of him but I only saw one young buck. At 9:30 I decided to go scout a little knoll that jutted out into a cut bean field. I never hunted this little corner of the farm before because there wasn't much to it. The closer I got to this knoll I realized it was the perfect spot for a buck to bed up. It was only about 3/4 an acre but it was on a high vantage where he could see. It butted up to a CRP field. I knocked an arrow and eased along looking for tines in the grass. I was about half way the knoll to the CRP when I looked ahead and see a Huge Rack coming my way. I crouched down and got ready for a shot opportunity. He strolled up to 20 yards and looked right at me. I thought it's now or never man! I drew and let the string drop and he wheeled and tore otta there! I knew I had hit him so I ran to see where he was and he had stopped on the woods edge across the field. He stood there twitching his tail, then I saw him stumble!!!!
He walked into the edge and flopped down. I took a seat and watched him for an hour. Then I knocked another arrow and eased up on him. He was Done! I dropped to my kness, Thanked the Good Lord with tears streamimg down my face. The buck of a Lifetime and with my Zona recurve to boot. He was 288 pounds on my Moultrie Scale!
Gross Score 185 7/8

I was also in Kansas a few weeks ago. Never saw anything like yours though.
Where did you hit him? Looks like the femoral artery in the hind leg. What a deer, the stuff dreams are made of.
