Brennen headed to Kansas to join good friend Cody Kuck, owner and operator of Heartland Pride Outfitters. With a muzzleloader tag in pocket, the early September season would be where this story would begin. 4 days of hard hunting yielded above average temperatures and very little deer movement, especially mature buck movement. Cody was kind enough to allow a return trip at the tail end of the season for one last chance at filling the tag. Another 4 day trip would prove to be well worth it as this beautiful Kansas buck stepped out in front of Brennen with a mere 5 minutes left of the hunt on the last day of the Kansas season.
