Jefferson County in Unit 10 of Northeast Kansas has the terrain and food sources to lead the state in age class of bucks with the highest percentage of mid-range and older bucks. The deer herd in Jefferson County, Kansas is second to none for quantity and quality. The mix of cropland, pastureland and dense stands of hardwood timber creates the perfect environment for a higher percent of mature bucks. This, combined with our long-term commitment to balanced habitat management, makes Old School Guide Service your best choice for the opportunity to take the buck of a lifetime!

Our limited access hunts will insure a large population of healthy game whether you are after that once in a lifetime buck, or a 30# plus tom turkey. We are a small outfitter that will provide you a remembered hunt, aka vacation with comfortable lodging, and the opportunity to bring home a trophy deer or turkey.
