Couple Big Kansas Bucks

Nick Skinner was hunting Kingman County, Kansas during the early muzzleloader season, when he shot this big 157″  buck. Nick was shooting his Thompson Center Prohunter with a Brunton scope. Below is his hunt report. Below that are some pictures of Bryhn Craft’s massive Kansas buck. Both hunters are part of the Whitetail Properties team.

Tom has a bunch of Reconyx trail camera pictures of this buck starting in July all the way up until I killed the buck. Tom and I named the buck Curley because of the way his long main beams curly up at the end, he is a main frame 10 point with long G3’s and good mass. He was a buck that showed himself a lot on the Reconyx cameras during daylight, he had a hole in his ear and scar above his left eye.

We had been getting pictures of him at a particular camera fairly regular so we waited for the right wind and decided to hunt the blind about 75 yards from where the picture were taken.

Curly was first spotted straight in front of us walking out of a bedding area straight at us at around 6:15pm, he went through my first shooting lane and went into the timber to our right where some does had been spotted. He came back out and I made a perfect shot at 75 yards, after the shot the buck ran right at us and fell over at about 15 yards to the right of our blind. Curly has a lot of character and I thank Tom McFarlane for patterning him and letting me hunt in Kansas.
