Kansas Early Muzzleloader Season

Does anyone know of a good reliable outfitter in Kansas that offers the early muzzleloader hunt? I've compiled a list of 12 or so outfitters that I am going to be looking into, just wanted to see if anyone has any positive experiences with any. My Dad and I are planning on doing this hunt next September and will be our first out of state hunt together.

Re: Kansas Early Muzzleloader Season

actually just talked to the guys at hickory creek...they have an early season muzzle loader hunt that is the first season of the year for them (best chance at the biggest boys in the woods) havent hunted there yet but planning a bow hunt for next year and they are at the top of the list right now...checked them out on nexthunt.com and had only positive reviews so they are worth a look at...good luck

Its not an obsession...Its a passion 2b

Re: Kansas Early Muzzleloader Season

Just a few things to keep in mind about that hunt. It can be an absolutely great hunt with good odds of killing a trophy buck - if the temperatures are cool. The bucks are lazy, in a daily routine to and from fields and as one outfitter I know says, "dumb as a stone."

On the flip side, if the temperatures are hot which is often the case in September, the bucks may not be on their feet until it is nearly dark and they may return to bed before daylight.

The other thing that some hunters have a hard time with is that this hunt is basically a few hours in the am and pm and that's it. You have to have something to do for the rest of the day as there is no sense being on stand and if you still hunt you will most likely bust them out of there and wise them up.

Some outfitters will allow you to book for the season or not lock in specific dates but give X amount of days that are flexible which would allow you to stay home until the weather is right.

Good luck - hope you kill two giants.

Re: Kansas Early Muzzleloader Season

Last year, I made a recommendation on the Site Suggestion Forum for creating a Huntingpa "Outfitters Rating Forum" similar to what North American Hunting club has where our members went on hunts and gave there evaluations & recommendations.

However, I got a lot negative feedback
