vacation

Just a few more hours and Hubby and I are officially starting our weeks vacation. Hubby wants to get a shot at the big buck behind the farmhouse. Im not going to be picky. Id happy with a doe. We've got a couple of new stands we haven't sat in yet that should be in really good spots. And we have a blind sat up next to a trail leading yo a farm pond that's a regular drinking spot since the creek has gone dry. It should be alot of fun.

Day one is a bust. I didn't go out this morning cause ive got the stomach bug. I go out in the afternoon hoping I don't puke. Get settled in my stand and someone drives into the middle of the section and target shoots. The landowner on the other side and my Hubby both show up to let him know neither one of them were to happy with him being there. I give up hurry to the car and move to the blind south of town and here I sit. But i haven't seen a thing.

As soon as I finished posting this two does showed up at the pond. They didn't come close enough for a shot but at least I know the deer are there during daylight hours. The day wasn't a total bust after all.

Day #2. I sat in the stand where I had my bad shot. Hubby and I didn't see much till about a half an hour before sunset. But when the deer showed up it was pretty clear that the rut is on in Kansas. Had a pretty nice 10 point chasing does but I didn't get a shot.

Good deal- In Missouri the rut is starting but starting fast. When and how long does your firearms season last in Kansas? Ours starts this saturday the 10th and goes until the 20th. Then we have a doe-only season that opens on the 21st and runs into December sometime. Good luck to you and your husband (sorry I just can't say hubby!) hahahaha

Our gun season has been moved up this year. It runs fron Nov 28 to Dec 9. It usually opens on Dec 16. I wish I would have realized that sooner. I would have liked to take a vacation day on opening day of gun season. Maybe ill have really good luck and ill fill my tags this week. It's finally cooled off a little more this morning. I didn't see anything where I sat but Hubby had a small racked big boddied 10 point at his stand. He was taking out his frustration on a bunch of tree branches.

Wow, that's late- that'll be after the rut then huh? I was assuming you were talking about firearms season in your first post. I've heard of some states doing that, having their main firearms season after the rut happens. Not sure I'm a fan of that.

Ya, Kansas's rifle season is late. If you don't hunt with a bow you don't hunt the rut.

Evening 3. Hubby thinks I'm passing on shooting cause I've had a couple bad hunts this season. I think he's probably right. I'm back out in the stand and this time maybe just maybe ill feel comfortable taking a shot.
