The Chicken Buck?

A Kansas "chicken" buck!

A Kansas "chicken" buck!

Ok, seriously now, where does my wife keep the Vitamin C?

With illness going around the hometown and the hacienda, I can’t afford to get sick – pig flu, regular flu, or polka dotted flu for all I care.

Why? Because I have a Kansas archery deer tag burning a hole in my back pocket for a buck like this!

The e-mail I received doesn’t say anything more than a Kansas buck. You can see from the camera’s photo time and date stamp that the digital pic was taken a little more than a month ago.

Interestingly enough, the photo is labeled “chicken” for some reason.

LOL! So is the word on the street that this mega-buck is somehow afraid of his own gargantuan shadow?

Got to admit, with a set of headbones like that, I might be afraid of my own shadow too – especially since hunting season is at hand!

What I do know is this: it’s a tough job, but I’m fully prepared to go into Kansas, covertly hang a treestand up, and kill a Sunflower State monster like this in the next couple of weeks.

And of course, I’ll share a blow-by-blow account right here of my woodsy battle with this big chicken!

So, with that in mind, does anyone have any word on the who, the what, and the where of this world class whitetail?

If so, do tell – I’m seriously hoping that the property I’m hunting is somewhere in the neighborhood of this Kansas “Chicken Buck!”
