Rut in Kansas?

I see you're from Dodge. I lived north of Legends on 109 road for 4 years. Any pheasants out your way. I know its off the subject.

I have a buddy who shot at a big boy the other night. The deer was close and the angle was down. The arrow (we think) hit a rib and never made to the vitals. The arrow looked to pass in front of the ribs and low. Do you think this is a possibility? We can't figure any other way that this could have happened. After the shot the deer walked off 200 yards out of sight with the arrow flopping in him. No blood hardly at all and no deer after a two day search. We think he's still alive. What are the chances of us seeing this deer again?

Is it possible he hit the leg or shoulder? I hit a deer once a little high and he took off with the arrow in him. We trailed blood as long as we could and went back the next day to search with no luck. Come rifle season( about a month later) a buddy of mine shot that deer in the same field I shot him. The arrow had broke off and he still had 10" of shaft and broad head stuck in him. We had a very hard time figuring out how this buck survived and how the arrow missed vitals. We've had 2 other instance similar to this one, So if the buck survived it is a good chance you could see him again.

PS Great pics, both are nice deer Thumbs up

From what I've been seeing through the season where I've been hunting, the main rut has passed us by and the lull started about a week ago. And now they are starting to get back on their feet for a second chase. Should be good for the rifle hunters.
What's everyone else been noticing? Think

My buddy and I have been sittin trying to see that deer that he shot and we've seen no deer since that day that he shot that deer. No does no bucks large or small. No anything. I think the moon has them screwed up a little. We had a trail cam pic of a doe in a scrape at 430 AM on Saturday morning. I think they can see well enough with this moon that they are comin out late.

Pretty sure I have the worst possible luck in hunting. I have sat probably 20 total times, and never seen a single deer. I don't get it.

It must be that they were all huddled up in a place that you were not. My son called on his way home from work tonight and said that the deer were really out. He saw about twenty in one group and thirty in another. I don't know his exact travel route, but I think he was working in Blue Springs today and on his way to Roeland Park.

You will find a big one, I am sure of it.

Yea, but there has been no deer taken on this property during rifle season, and no shots have been fired either. Cry Cry
