In the very N.W. edge of the state, they are seeing the wasting problem. A few counties there do have check ins. I have read that Ks. could lose 2/3 of our deer herd to wasting. If that starts to happen, I am sure tags and regs. will change. Right now other than the bow hunters getting the rut to themselves every year, Ks. is a fairly good place to hunt. By the time firearms season hits it is very cold, full moon, rut is over, and racks can be busted up.
