First time for me on the forum. I live in Dallas, TX but have a lease in SE KS that I'm headed to a week from today. Can't wait! I noticed Jarot was in Coffeyville. My place is in Severy. Just curious if the deer had started any rut action yet. The day I arrive is supposed to be in the mid-low 30's so I'm banking on the big boys being wide open. Ya'll seeing any action yet near these parts?
