A Great Year of Whitetail Hunting in Kansas
Well as the 2012 whitetail season came to a close, we had another good season for our trophy deer hunts. With 3 out of the 5 bow hunting clients connecting successfully, our rifle hunters went 7 for 7. This gives 10 Gauge a 100% success rate for rifle clients the past three seasons combined. We continue to make our name known for the best whitetail hunting in Kansas.
Over the past two years we had have our trials with hard drought conditions which in turn can have effects on antler growth. During a drought, the antlers do not seem to weigh quite as much as they normally would. They also seem to break up much more easily during the rut when trophy whitetails work to establish their territories. We also come to find that the mass has been affected the most with tine length a close second.
Looking forward to 2013, we hope to have a good snow this winter and a wet spring, with some rain fall during summer this coming year. We are continually supplementing more protein into our feeders, trying to help with shortage due to drought. More mineral and supplements during winter and spring are on the forecast, as well as going to a year around feed program instead of stopping during summer months.
We hope you will come join 10 Gauge Outfitters on our trophy deer hunts, experiencing memories not to be forgotten. Apply at the KDWPT for your upcoming deer hunt here.
