Two Locked Bucks Found In Kansas

Loyal D&DH reader Tim Andrus sent in these photos of two locked bucks,
found in Kansas this spring while turkey hunting.

Writes Andrus:

This spring while hunting in Kansas with my buddy Gene Pearcy of Kansas
Whitetails Adventures in Benedict, Kansas, we were setting up on some gobblers that
we had located earlier in the day and while sneaking down a draw we found an outfitters
nightmare: Two quality bucks locked up from last season’s rut. Both were 9pts; the
larger one grossed 157 inches and the other 142 inches! A shame to have 2 quality
bucks die without recognition! The only good thing is that they will be displayed
at Gene’s lodge for years to come.

(Editor’s note: And they’ll be displayed here in the Deer & Deer Hunting blog
– where they’ll get plenty of recognition! Thanks, Tim!)
