Dirt Road Outfitters Kansas whitetail hunts occur on land that is used for agriculture or cattle purposes. Dirt Road Outfitters only offers a few Kansas whitetail deer hunts & Rio Grande turkey hunts every year to ensure that the game we hunt is not over hunted. All hunters are lodged in a 1900’s farm house located on a working farm & cattle ranch. Our trophy whitetail deer hunts run 5 days & all deer hunters are lodged for 6 nights. The Rio Grande turkey hunts are 3 days & all turkey hunters are lodged for 4 nights.
In our opinion there is nothing like hunting Kansas whitetail deer in the fall. Not only will the hunter see an abundance of whitetail deer while on their hunting trip, but they will also see many whitetail bucks that are over a 150 class whitetail deer. Every year we have several whitetail deer that eclipse the Boone & Crockett measurement standards seen on our properties. Remember, all of hunts are free range hunts. Having that kind of quality of deer that are our seen on our properties speaks volumes for the quality of terrain that we hunt.
Opening day in Kansas for either archery or muzzleloading season can be unbelievable for whitetail deer. Since many of the bucks antlers have just lost their velvet, the bucks testosterone level has not yet increased, thus making the deer more patternable & easier to hunt. A few Kansas whitetail deer giants always hit the dirt during the opening week. If you like to roll the dice, the Kansas fall rut is always an exciting time. During this time the bucks range is dramatically increased as the deer pursue a hot Kansas whitetail doe.
For the whitetail deer hunter this means that a buck that we’ve never seen before withstands a pretty good chance of showing up during the fall rut hunting period of November. Another time of the year that is a good time to hunt Kansas whitetail bucks is in December when rifle season opens. Some deer hunters prefer opening day & others prefer the second week of rifle season. Usually either week is phenomenal because the un-bred whitetail does are showing themselves again, and the Kansas whitetail bucks are usually not very far behind the does. If, however, the bucks are not showing, since the deer hunter now possesses a weapon that increases the range in which they feel comfortable harvesting a mature Kansas whitetail deer, they can now harvest that animal when they are going in between bedding areas. Since we have an abundance of bedding areas on our Kansas hunting land properties this vastly increases the Kansas deer hunters chance of killing a great whitetail buck with Dirt Road Outfitters.
Our team has over 90 years of combined Kansas whitetail deer hunting experience. Our family has been in area for well over a hundred years, & so some of the hunting property our hunters hunt has been in our family well over 120 years.
