Is there not a good chance of getting a leftover tag? I know one guy that has gotten one for a few years in a row.


Not really. Its getting tougher and tougher.

Not asking incase it's private but did you ever say what Unit you were in last year? Pretty sure I remember following your live thread.


You drew a tag in it. :D

Good luck Twolf!
I also drew my first ever Kansas tag and am definitely looking forward to it. I have a question I was hoping you guys could help me out with. I drew in unit 7 with "additional unit 8". Am I able to hunt both units 7 and 8?

I'm interested to see how this goes. I'm looking at going to hunt units 8 and 9 next year. I've heard drawing an archery tag isn't hard. A good buddy of mine owns 160 acres in unit 8. He started hunting public up there then ended up buying a farm. His best buck was from public up there. 206". He said the bucks up there are unbelievable.

I use to buy leftover tags which allowed be to see what else I drew in other states before commiting. Leftovers have gone by the wayside, maybe due to the crossbow allowance. Therefore, I needed to apply this year as there where no leftovers last year for the first time.

First two weeks of November will have a big influx of NR's. Public is still decent, but I would work on private access preferably before you get there.

Have archery hunted 8/9 for the last 4 years. The area is still rebounding from concurrent years of EHD taking a toll on the population.

How long ago was the last big kill from disease in that area? I am going to try to have a live thread here this year while in Kansas.

EHD hit 2013 & 2014.
Found out last night that KS really reduced the number of tags available this year. Property owner I hunt at said some of the other guys that usually hunt did not draw this year. I will count myself in as one of the lucky ones.

2012 was the year EHD really hit hard. Not all areas of 8 and 9 were affected though. Non resident tag numbers were the same for 2017 as they were 2016, and there was actually a few more leftovers this year. They haven't released the pdf file with the breakdown by unit number yet though.

Yeah, 2013 was the first year I hunted there so a 2012 makes sense too.

Interesting on the NR info. Contradicts what I have been told by the landowner in KS. idk
