2015 Kansas Whitetail (pics)

Postby BOHNTR » Tue Nov 10, 2015 4:10 pm

Well, I finally did it.........I actually hunted whitetail deer. It's been on my bucket list to do for a few years now, and with a gracious friend from P&Y, my buddy and I (Ed Fanchin) drove to western Kansas and met our generous hunting partner. My very first evening sitting a tree-stand, I arrowed this P&Y class whitetail at 21 yards. He's a 10-point (eastern count) that's over 21" wide......I'm told that's wide for a whitey? He only went a short distance after taking my arrow through the heart.

The next morning, it was Ed's turn. He arrowed this nice buck........then filled his doe tag 10 minutes later. Unreal hunt that was fun. I could get used to this stuff. lol

Ed's buck with the "recovery team".....he also arrowed a doe 10 minutes after his buck fell.

Pictures won't open. ](*,)

Congratulations on what sounds like a fun hunt.

Very cool bohntr! It's been a while since I've seen a picture of you killing something. Glad to see you back on it! Planning any more high country hunts anytime soon?

Congrats on your first whitetail. I tried sitting in the stand thing a few years back but just didn't quite take to it.
It ain't the size of the gun but the placement of the bullet.

Yeah, it's different. Much easier if you're seeing critters for sure.

Oh, I've been bowhunting stuff.....just haven't posted many photos lately. I ended up arrowing a small 4x4 (23") in NV in August on the last day.......killed a decent desert buck In AZ last year that I don't believe I posted.......and a couple good wild hogs and turkeys spread throughout the last several months.
