Rut in Kansas?

It's been my experience that after the rut there seems to be a period of absolutely no sign of a deer no matter what you do. It seems to last about 10 days. I believe the rigors of the rut have caught up with them and it is a time of R & R. Very little movement. They will come back out to slowly start their feeding patterns and pre pre-rut activity. Maybe try locating the deepest, nastiest cover you can imagine, otherwise wait it out and hope the activity resumes. I know our area is showing the same activity right now. Good Luck and I hope it works out for you Yes

I've noticed the same lack of activity over the last week or so. But last Sunday saw some does and one buck at a new farm I decided to try up near Potter, KS. I believe you should be seeing more activity this weekend with the weather and the deer having rested after the rut.

Saw 4 does Wednesday night. They were very relaxed (until I fired an arrow of a branch at one of them). Then saw a BIG buck with a doe. Saw 6 deer total.

Andy,

Don't just drop the "BIG buck" and not elaborate more. Tell us about him and how everything went.
