Mike decided to hunt the last couple of days of the 2020 firearm season to get out in the woods to see what boys had survived. Mike brought this big one home the last afternoon! Mr Handsome came out of the woods to keep his girlfriend from flirting with a young fella.

The top image features, one trail camera photo captured during a 29 minute buck parade, 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!

Whitetail Hunters! Its time to contact Old School Guide Service in Unit 10 and Unit 19 of Northeast Kansas for your 2024 hunt! Kansas is a non-resident draw hunt state for deer. Applications must be completed on line in April of each year. You can draw as an individual or as a group.

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, Mark Nickels, Guide, 913-609-2348 or email them at nickelsfarms@gmail.com.
