Default Republican whitetail

Hey guys posted this in the archery part thought I would post it here to.

Just found out that I get the chance to hunt on the Republican river in Nebraska where it crosses over from Kansas. Has anybody hunted the Republican? What can I exspect? We are getting ready for our elk hunt here in Colorado after that I should be able to get out to Nebraska to scope it out. Just thinking someone might have some insite on what to look for

Hunted the Republican a couple times, near the town of Franklin. It's basically just a small creek with trees on both sides. The woods were never wider than 100yds where I hunted along the river. There were agricultural fields on both sides of the river. The deer use the river as a travel corridor. Hunt anywhere along the river where there is more cover extending out from the river. Pay close attention to what food source the deer are on at that time. What time of the year are you going?

Take a sharp knife, your gonna need it. You will see plenty of deer. Slip in , slip out , set up more than one stand so you can play the wind. Don't shoot a baby , a big one will be along. As some one above said, the river acts like a travel path. Depends on the location but the terrain can be wider than 100 yds considerbly. Oberservation stand where you can see good might be in order before you get in too close. Slip along the river and look for crossings. Water don't stop them at all. Deer in that country don't have a problem useing bare ground to travel in. They do like ditches and ravines to travel to food scorces. Go in november if you can. Take plenty of warm clothes. Sometimes you need them. Hedge rows can pay off big time. Hunt the does in Nov. Rut is about nov 15th plus or minus. Those deer call real well. Good luck

I saw the biggest buck I ever saw up there. He was a 14 point---around 24" wide. Absolute monster. He was pushing 200.
