The prime farming country of the mid-west draws truckloads of hunters to the woods from all across the country every Fall. All in hopes of laying their hands on a buck of a lifetime!!!
Kansas has been a top trophy producing state for years!! With miles and miles of cropfields full of corn and soybeans, the limited number of tags issued, and the somewhat mild winters, all of the ingredients are there to produce some whopper bucks!!
Mid-West Adventures offers fully-guided, semi-guided, and self-guided hunts in Kansas and Missouri for whitetail deer, turkey, predators, and waterfowl.
Kansas has an early muzzleloader season that coincides with the archery opening date. This early season can provide some unbelievable results. The deer are just starting to bust out of their bachelor groups and they are very predictable going from the bedding area to feed.
Kansas residents and non-residents alike are only allowed one buck for the entire season. With the rifle season falling during the first week of December, this allows the archery hunters to hunt the rut!!
Mike "Tater" Haviland, Mid-West Adventures, has hunted this region of Kansas for 20 years. Most of that time has been spent scouting, hanging treestands, and guiding hunters from all around the world. Not to mention capturing it all so the world can watch it on TV.
He has been running camera and producing TV shows since 1991. His work has appeared on ESPN, The History Channel, The Outdoor Channel, Versus, Outdoor Life Network, and In Country Television. I'm sure if you watch any outdoor programming, you have witnessed the fruits of his labor. Some of the shows that you may recognize are: Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World, Bass Pro Shops Next Generation, T/C Game Trails, NWTF's Turkey Country, NWTF's Turkey Call, and the NRA shows; American Hunter, American Rifleman, and American Guardian.
With all this experience he has learned, you're only as good as the people you work with. He feels he works with some of the best. All of the guides at Mid-West Adventures are life-long hunters also.
