It depends on where you go. This is desperation weekend for some since it's the last couple days - so if it moves it may die.Can deer hunters be an issue in Kansas? In MT and ND it is a total nonissue. If we meet they tell me where they have seen pheasants and I tell them where I've seen deer. In 30 plus years I have never had an issue, but I have never hunted Kansas during deer season.
I've hunted the Pratt Sandhills years ago during deer season (I like to rifle hunt too - just not as much as bird hunt) -- anyways I was bird hunting at the time - we heard a lot of shots near the trees and my buddies stayed closer to the road hunting a shelter belt and heard a bullet whiz in the trees.
I got out in the middle and low and behold saw some of the biggest bucks -- but Sandhills bucks are damn smart - they'll post up in a plum thicket on the side of a hill with the wind - your dog or you spook them and all you get is a flick of a tail and them bounding over the hill never to be seen again.
My point is stay out in the open - Orange up and common courtesy -- if someone is there move on or give them space. I wouldnt hunt heavily treed spaces at all.
