Checked my trail cam couple days ago, and this is what I find! I know you other KS guys will share the same head scratch moment I had. Keep in mind this is very NE Kansas. No farm raised elk around the area. Guess is he escaped Fort Riley.
If you're lucky enough to be on private land and can leave your stand up during the off season you can tie an old piece of cloth or something of the sort to your stand. I like to use an old camo bandana that I have. That way the deer get used to the movement and eventually don't bother even looking up when there is slight movement. This may just give you the time to draw your bow or raise your gun without being detected.
