Kansas Whitetail -- Drew My Tag

Hoping to draw for a Kansas rifle deer hunt this fall and would appreciate any general information on what to expect. I believe the hunt will take place in Barton or adjacent county.

Unit 5. Typical shooting distance, prevailing wind speed conditions, and any info you think might be helpful. Planning to use a 270 Weatherby.

Wind hard to tell but this is Kansas flat and windy but A guess would be a 10 to 15 MPH . Range Just depends on the property your hunting how big the pasture or field is. but shots are about 100 to 300 yards some longer some shorter. Unless you set up for long range then almost as far as you want to shoot .

From what I can tell on the sat maps it is flat crop fields with drainages and some tree lines. The outfitter gave me the same estimates on distance and said possibly further in some situations. I live in very hilly terrain with forest and brush with most shots approx. 100yds. I do have some stand locations that present shots 400yds. plus on clearcuts. I pretty comfortable with 300yds and will spend the summer practicing.

Unit 16 is where my biggest buck is from 174 1/8 P&Y. Don't get to trigger happy lot of big bucks out there.
