JP drew a tag in Kansas this year for the first time, ever. With a new lease in place, we were excited to get down there and start hunting this fall. A couple of nice bucks seemed to call the property home throughout the summer and into the fall, but they just weren’t quite what he was hoping to put his Kansas tag on. The plan was to wait until November and give it time to see if something bigger would show up. Sure enough, late October rolled around and a “new buck” showed up. We dubbed him “Showtime” and he quickly moved to the top of the Hitlist. Showtime was very inconsistent in his movement on the trail cameras, but he would show up just enough to give us hope that we might run into him. It would be on our 3rd trip in November, and on the eve of Thanksgiving Day before the stars would finally align and JP would lay his hands on the biggest buck of his life!
