What is the average score of your mature Kansas Trophy Whitetails?  Our average mature buck will score 140 inches at 4.5 to 5.5 years old.  Every season is different and is driven by the weather but you can count on seeing bucks anywhere from 130 to 160 inches.  The largest deer seen on our properties will score well over 200 inches. The largest deer harvested scored 206 6/8. 

Do you charge a trophy fee for your Kansas Deer Hunts?  No.  You are allowed to take any animal you choose.  We do however practice Quality Deer Management on our properties and we therefore require that the bucks taken score a minimum of 130 inches. A fine will be assessed for harvesting a buck less the 130 inches.

How many Kansas Deer Hunters do you take in a season? We keep the total number of Kansas deer hunts on our properties very low. I will only sell twenty Kansas deer hunts a year. I will typically book ten bow hunters and ten rifle hunters a year.

How many Kansas Deer Hunters will you have in camp at one time? I will never have more than six hunters in camp at one time. If you book a group of four or more hunters, you will have the lodge, all of our properties and deer stands to yourselves.

Are your Kansas Deer Hunts fully guided?  No.  We hunt two on one so our hunts are semi-guided. However by request our guides will stay with you to help make sure proper harvest decisions are made if necessary.

Do we have to come back to the lodge for lunch, or can we hunt all day?  The choice is yours.  We can pack you a sack lunch for an all day hunt if you want, or your guide can pick you up and bring you back to the lodge for lunch.

Do you process the deer?  No.  We field dress the deer only.  I have a taxidermist and retired butcher that guide for the lodge.  They would be happy to cape and process your trophy for an additional fee.  I can also make arrangements to process your deer at one of our local lockers if you wish.

What kind of habitat will I hunt?  Our stands are set up in heavy timber, over food plots, on heavily used trails between feeding and bedding areas, and on saddles overlooking deep woody draws.

What type of shot can I expect?  You can expect to have a shot between 10 and 600 yards.
