The above image features, one trail camera photo captured during a 29 minute buck parade. Clear evidence that the deer herd in Jefferson County, Kansas is second to none for quantity and quality.  The mix of cropland, pastureland and dense stands of hardwood timber creates the perfect environment for a higher percent of mature bucks.  This, combined with our long-term commitment to balanced habitat management, make Old School Guide Service your best choice for the opportunity to take the buck of a lifetime!

Northeast Kansas has the terrain and food sources to top the rest of Kansas in age class of bucks with a higher percentage of mid-range and older deer. Call, Old School Guide Service, Mike Nickels Owner-Guide, 785-393-9308,

A Trophy for the Ages
This young hunter used a cross bow in 2018 to bring down this super trophy. His deer stand was set right where Mike had been seeing some travelers.
Time to Retire
The Captain found Mike through our website this fall (2018) and asked if he could come on his day’s off. Mike set him up in our Buckzilla Woods. Look what the Captain found!
