2014 – 1st Annual “Great Gobblers Almighty” Kansas Hunt
MAY 2014 – The #GirlsHuntOut for Turkey in Kansas was Terrific and here are the photos to prove it!! (Click the Pic for the rest of the story)
This was Mike Wheeler’s first time to bring a group of women into camp, and was considered more of a test run, but after everyone having a terrific time including Mike’s lovely wife Stephanie Wheeler, and his adorable son Kolbe,, it has been determined that this hunt will now officially be referred to as the “The First Annual Kansas Turkey Hunt for Women @ Wheeler’s Whitetails” as Mike has decided that women are serious about hunting, and they are much more fun! He has agreed to host more women’s hunts in the future, so keep your eyes peeled! Next up we have a Whitetail hunt on the books for December 2014, Check for details and availability here: 2014 Wonderful Whitetail Hunt for Women. and for 2015 Spring there will be 2 Turkey Hunts, check here for details: 2015 2nd Annual Great Gobblers Almighty Kansas Turkey Hunt.
The women along on this maiden turkey hunt included ~ Kara Jo Lorenz coming from Oklahoma ~~ Kerry Kemper from right down the road in Kansas ~~ Ruth Cusack of Adventures of Louis & Ruth Cusack flying in from ALASKA ~~ Stacy Sissney ‘Host of His & Hers Outdoors TV’ joined by her cameraman/host/husband Jon Sissney driving in from Oklahoma and a First Time Hunter traveling from Texas Elizabeth.Babaian-Kibala! I always love having a first time hunter, and this time was a treat because she got 2 GREAT GOBBLERS!!!) This group was perfectly proportioned with experienced, moderate and newbies and we all learned from each other! We all had a BLAST, Actually several blasts, as there were 8 turkeys taken that included 1 bearded hen by Kara!!
I had previously hunted with Mike @ Wheeler’s Whitetails for whitetail archery last November 2013 invited by The www.Limbsaver.com crew. Out of 8 hunters, all had opportunity for 130 – 175 bucks but only 1 closed the deal. The bucks are definitely there! This was my first Turkey hunt in Kansas and it was a treat for all of us! Mike was born and raised in this area and knows every inch like the back of his hand. I truly believe that after these experiences that there are few guides that put in the effort and have the passionate commitment that each hunter in the lodge having a successful hunt and best experience overall. There is no slack in camp with Mike in command. He is serious when it comes to the hunt, because your success is his success and he takes it all to heart. You can stay in the blinds for however long you want to be there, and he makes sure that you are familiar with the surroundings, and with a trail cam or two at each location you will have some idea what to expect. Mound City is a small community surrounded by some of the most beautiful countryside of rolling hills and creeks and Mike has thousands of acres sprinkled across the area including a few spots in MO just across the state line. Centrally Located and only 1.5 hours from KCI Airport it makes for easy access and affordable travel.
This second experience has me cicking my Lacrosse Boots saying “There’s no place like Kansas, There’s no place like Kansas” because I cannot wait to go back for another GIRLS HUNT OUT!
