KS application is in

KS application is in. I have always wanted to hunt KS mule deer and have been building points for a few years.  I hope I also get the mule deer stamp.  Moving to Missouri this summer and looking to hunt the WIA or public land on the western side of the state.  Anyone have any experience with the WIAs?  I plan to do some scouting if gas prices are not sky high.

Ks hunt

I don't know how hard it is to get a mule deer stamp but there is plenty of WIHA areas and I have had very good success in the past on them. Scouting is the key, however their range changes after rut and harvest scout as many pieces as you can and leave yourself a lot of options.

Good luck

Very cool!  I too am looking

Very cool!  I too am looking forward to a KS hunt, but will probably go after whitetail instead of mulies.  Gonna be a couple of years, but I have done a little snooping around here and there.

Good luck!  Keep us informed.

No mulies

Well, I found out I drew the KS whitetail muzzy tag for unit 1 and 2, but no mule deer stamp.  I am disappointed in not being able to hunt the mulies but at least I get to look over new territory and chase whitetails.  Going to be a great year.

good country

There is a lot of walk in in those two units and some really nice whitetail. Elevations are 3500 foot and dry and most of the whitetail will be in the river bottoms but don't overlook the canyons or pastures because I have seen some big bucks in those areas as well. 

The muzzy season can be very hot so don't forget your light weight gear and water bladder.

Have fun and good luck.
