Wondering what's happening in Kansas
? We were and got this recent tidbit from correspondent Michael Pearce:
"Yes, the drought is as bad as the news portrayed, but hunting has been fantastic for whitetail and mule deer. This year the drought probably helped because the deer were more concentrated around food and water and the corn was cut at least a month ahead of schedule. In fact, Kansas had probably its best-ever early muzzleloader season (opened September 17) with numerous great deer shot. I know of at least 10 that scored over 200, with four or five over 220...and those are just the ones I know about. That early season is always a great time to get on huge bucks because they're still in summer patterns and bachelor herds and aren't as spooky as later in the fall, when all hunting seasons are underway.....
