Today we’ve got another great success story from Pete Alfano of Whitetail Properties. Pete has made killing big bucks in Kansas look easy over the past four years, but in reality it seems that it’s been hard work and persistence that have helped this Whitetail Properties Land Specialist knock down four 160″+ giants in the Sunflower state.  Congrats Pete on another great buck! – MK

“This is the 4th year managing this Kansas property and we were hunting the far north end of the piece because I’d been getting good pictures of two mature bucks prior to the early Muzzleloader season in Kansas. Two days before the season started I pulled my Reconyx camera and discovered this new buck showing up pushing these other bucks away with his aggressive behavior. The weather was unusally cool for this time of year and figured my chances were good that one of the target bucks would be up and on their feet early. The opening day of the season was no different as the sun started to set I looked to my left and saw this great buck coming out of the canyons and over the pasture with his ears pinned back walking straight towards two smaller bucks that had began to feed towards the small pond I was overlooking. After making a couple scrapes he walked broadside 90 yards and I stopped him. The 250 grain Barnes did it’s job and he expired 30 yards away. Once again owning this property and being able to manage it has proven to be the key. 4 years straight now harvesting a 160” or better buck. Cant beat Kansas” – Pete Alfano
