Get the WIHA map.

Congratulations on even getting a tag.

I looked into it and it was nearly impossible for a non-resident.

It looks to me like there are plenty of antelope though.  Get the WIHA map.

Yeah I do not have any

Yeah I do not have any specific places to send you either. Congratulations on getting that tag though and good luck no matter where you end up. I am sure that you can find a spot that has some goats in it. Keep us posted on how everything turns out.

So just how close were you

So just how close were you able to get to the goats.  Any tips or advice for someone thinking about hunting KS antelopes?

Archery hunting Kansas goats

Archery hunting Kansas goats is tough.  I just met a guy who told me his family has land out in western with goats on it.  He told me he'd set me up so we'll see next year.  I've gotten four WY goats so a Kansas goat would be a nice addition.  Be sure to post some more info about your hunt so I can learn more about hunting KS goats.

Funny isn't it, that I know more about hunting goats in WY and just about nothing about hunting them in my home state.

It's not all that wierd.

It's not all that wierd. There are thousands of guys that leave thier home state that has good pronghorn numbers every fall and head to Wyoming to get one. That state is just the antelope mecca. And there are a lot of hunters that make their voyage their every year. You should definitely look into hunting KS though since you live there. No reason not to I guess.

 You should definitely look

The reason I go to Wyoming and not KS is pretty simple - access to land to hunt.  In WY there is an abundance of public land whereas in KS the land is private and you'd have to get permission to hunt it from teh land owner.  The herd in KS is not as large as in WY so even if you can get permission, the odds of getting a goat are lesser. 

I may look into going west to hunt them in KS as I now met a guy who says he has land and I can hunt them.
