The summary provided by Bullmark is spot on in terms of the hunting conditions we experienced. Very hot, very humid, evening only show. Only thing I observed that was different is that I had never been to Central Kansas Whitetails before, and they put me on deer of the same quality as the guys that had been coming every year for years. They maintained a book of trail cam shots and were very open about what was in various locations (we targeted the buck I got) and they did not play favorites in any way from my perspective. Not at all like several experiences I have had here in the West with other outfitters. They were also incredibly gracious and accommodating with my father, whose health was failing, and I will be forever grateful for that.
It sounds like u got a solid outfitter and things went according to plan. It’s been my exp that outfitters in KS and Iowa are less likely to overbook and play favorites. Much of that has to do with the tag availability. It’s practically impossible for a non resident to hunt Iowa year after year. A bow Hunter in my section (south central about an hour south of DesMoines) is lucky to draw every third year. Gun hunters usually get drawn every other year.
There are a few well known outfitters in other states, like Illinois, who just run an assembly line of guys. It’s a shame to see a guy who may have saved for years to go on a hunt of lifetime, get taken advantage of. I know of one such outfitter and I’ve been told they haven’t moved a treestand in 10 yrs.

muzzleloader would pretty much be last hour of the day and hot . Maybe there will be a big one left for me!
Can confirm, spent my first 30 years in Kansas and fortunately have a lifetime license so I hunt with my folks every year. It can be pretty miserable that early in the season, good choice on waiting for rifle season.

Big shout out to OH58DViper for recommending C&S whitetail in Kansas! C&s are a great group of guys and have excellent hunting. I was able to get it done on second evening of a 5 day hunt and many other great deer were taken during that time even though the weather wasn’t great (near record high temperatures)
