Hunt trophy mule deer in northwestern Kansas

This hunt has produced some big muleys, including bucks scoring 216 and 220, several in the 190s and many 180s.

This outfitter operates on private leases in northwestern Kansas. He leases about 50,000 acres of private ranches and farms in game management units 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5.

Hunts.Net President Rich LaRocco hunted with him a few years ago, arriving at his home at 2:30 a.m., and he had Rich on a 30-inch-class buck at first light.

"Unfortunately," Rich said, "I had failed to pop a few caps to clean out residues of cleaning oil, and this caused my power to ignite poorly. At the shot, I felt absolutely no recoil, something that has happened to me once or twice on the practice range, and in those instances the bullet didn't even make it to the target, so I'm guessing that's what happened here. I saw the buck again but was unable to get a good shot, and he eventually wandered onto a neighboring ranch, where he was shot while crossing an open field. "

The outfitter himself hunted hit a big buck that was killed by a neighbor three days later. The rack scored 197 B&C. A look at the carcass showed that his broadhead had flown a bit high and barely had nicked one lung. His mule deer hunts are fully guided. You must first draw a whitetail tag and then apply for a mule deer stamp. If you draw a stamp, you must hunt with a muzzleloader if you're a non-resident.

There is a muzzleloader season in September, and you also may hunt during the December rifle season. Residents may use rifles to hunt muleys in Kansas.

You won't see dozens of bucks on this hunt. But if you're willing to be patient, this hunt offers a chance at a once-in-a-lifetime trophy.

This outfitter also runs a good whitetail hunt, offering semi-guided and guided hunts, and he also offers guided, semi-guided and unguided turkey hunts. You need four hunters for a self-guided turkey hunt. He also offers pheasant hunting for a daily rate.
