Just got back from another KS hunt in extreme NW KS near St Francis. We are so lucky to be able to hunt on a property that is usually reserved for paying customers. I did have an opportunity at a bruiser buck but either did not hit him or did not find him in standing corn. It was a near perfect shot with me standing behind a huge hay round bale. I did missjudge the yardage but still should have connected. We are going to contact the land owner and have him look for a big rack when he cuts the corn. Of course we did not see him or his buddys again. I did connect with a big doe later in the week and after a difficult track and trail recovered this one. This is the second year to hunt the locale and have leads on some more properties to hunt. It does very good to be friends with the local state game protector. I am going to get my bruiser buck yet if my health and welfare hold out a couple of more years.
I was blessed to be able to visit with my brother Spirithawk on the trip out from PA. He is doing well and it sure did my old heart well to see him and his wife once again. He is trying to get healthy enough to have the very serious heart valve replacement surgery. It has been a long road to get where he is now but the spark is in his eye and he has a couple of bucks lined up for his season.
