Well here he is. I've hunted this stud every since opening day of this year. I've had him in close with no good shot a few times but on december 10th at 4 50 there was nothing between him and me but my drawn bow. I watched him come down the trail with another buck I call the crab 8. He has butiful crab claws on both sides. Just not quite mature enough to shoot. This buck I shot, him and I have quite the relationship. Some of you may have seen my post with his pics in it. I probaly have 500 pics of this guy. He had a bit of luck in the past with avoiding me but not that day. When he broke away from the crab 8 and came out in my lane at 28 yards I settled the pin on his body and let it go. Double lung shot. He donkey kicked and ran. He made it about 100 yards with a perfect blood trail in the snow. He was lying there waiting to let me put my hands on a beautiful set of trophy antlers. I will score him later on but I'm guessin he will be very close to 150. The tekan done it job once again!

arent you supposed to tag them on there rear leg, not on the antler. ive seen several pics and was always under the impression the regulations said to tag your deer on the rear leg.

That's right! You cant get one if you are sitting on the couch! Great job.

As far as tagging goes, the tag on the leg is only if you have a printed one that you bought over the internet. These tags are not waterproof so they recommend putting it in a zip lock bag and using a zip tie to secure it to the leg. You can put the tag anywhere, as long as its noticeable. Check the regs if you don't believe me.

Here you go. Straight from the KDWP website. Nothing saying that you have to tag it on the leg, just a recommendation for internet tags.
TAGGING AND
POST-HARVEST
INFORMATION
1. Sign permit prior to hunting.
Permit is not valid until signed.
2. After harvesting animal, sign,
date, and affix carcass tag to animal
in a visible manner. Carcass tag must
be attached before moving carcass
from harvest site.
Permits purchased through the
internet include a carcass tag that is
printed with the permit. To protect nonwaterproof
tags, place carcass tag in a
clear plastic bag and attach it to the leg
of the animal in a visible manner.
Carcass tag must remain attached to
the carcass until processed for consumption.
The permittee must retain
the carcass tag until the carcass is consumed,
given to another, or otherwise
disposed of.
For all antlerless deer permits, the
head of the deer shall remain naturally
attached to the carcass while in transit from the site of the
kill to the permittee’s residence or to a place of processing
or preservation. Any legally acquired meat may be given to
and possessed by another, if a dated, written notice that
includes the donor’s printed name, signature, address, and
permit number or license transaction number accompanies
the meat. The person receiving the meat must retain the
notice until the meat is consumed, given to another, or otherwise
disposed of. Nonresidents must also meet other
states’ requirements while in transit or possession of deer
and turkey carcasses.
The department regularly asks hunters to complete a
harvest report indicating success and other related information.
Hunters may be sent a card in the mail directing
them to our online survey website. State law (K.S.A. 32-
937) requires that hunters receiving a harvest report card
complete the survey. The information provided assists in
managing the state’s wildlife resources. In addition, deer
teeth collection envelopes are mailed to a small portion of
hunters, whose cooperation provides vital information
used to manage the Kansas deer herd.
