This is a post rut type hunt and we tend to hunt from stands the majority of the time. The deer are not moving as much as during the rut and you will not see as many bucks. But, the potential to harvest an exceptional buck is greater in Kansas since the gun season is after the rut. Placing the gun season after the rut makes them less vulnerable and therefore bigger. Kansas muzzleloader hunt is held the last week of September, making it a great time to hunt big bucks. Bucks are still in predictable summer patterns and they have not been hunted. This hunt allows muzzleloader hunters to hunt deer prior to archery and gun hunters.
