Rut in Kansas?

Tonight was the first night I've been on stand without seeing anything. Had a nice buck come in yesterday morning. He came to 15 yds. to investigate decoy, but I he stood under a branch giving me no shot. Was fun to watch! He hung around for about 20 minutes trying to figure out why my decoy smelled so good but wouldn't move. Where I have been hunting I would say the main rut is winding down, but they will have another short burst in about a week.

Found a buck today that someone took a shot at with a small cal. Gut shot and it died on our property. Nice small 8 pt. Always hate seeing that Brick Wall,)

How has the weather been out there? It has been awefully warm and dry out here!

Do you think it is slowing them down?

Went out Sat morning. Rattled in a real nice 8 pointer. Shot and missed! It was a bummer. Went back out Sat night. Didn't see anything until about 5pm. I rattled and a lone doe come runnin by breathing real hard. She exited to my west and I looked over to my right from where she came and here he comes! Head down, lip curled up and on the move. I hit my bleat can and called him right to me. Shot him at 17 yards. Nice main frame 10 with a sticker. Better part is that last night my buddy's dad sat in the same stand and rattled a bigger 10 then mine and shot him from 25 yards. My buddy said there was a second big buck comin in too! Its underway fellas! Good luck.

Hopefully this rut sticks in for the first few days of rifle season so I can shoot the big one on the land I rifle hunt on!
