Going to Western Kansas for Antelope during Archery season. Anyone ever hunted out there and were is a good spot. I'm taking my family with me and we just want to see some. I know it will tough hunting.
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.
We just made it back from our hunt. We saw plenty of goats but did not get close enough. We have till the end of the month and hope to make it back out. If not we had fun and now we know were to go next year.
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. 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.

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.
A perk of majoring in wildlife biology in college is the plethora of hunting knowledge that you collect throughout your course load. One of the most important factors in whether an area can hold large quantities of animals or produce large antlers is forage.
Most universities, state schools and even community colleges offer basic botany courses and plant ID courses. Although it might not be feasable for the average middle age hunter to pay tuition and go back to college to learn hunting...
