Flint Hills Whitetail Deer and Turkey Hunting


South Fork Adventures

EVERYTHING IS BIGGER IN TEXAS!  Well . . . that may be . . . in many things but certainly not deer!  Kansas whitetail deer are one of the most sought after game in the country . . . . especially  by Texans!


South Fork Adventures is a group who The Lark Inn Guesthouses has partnered with to bring you supreme hunting experiences.  Based right in the heart of the Flint Hills of Kansas . . . just 10 minutes southeast of Cottonwood Falls, South Fork Adventures knows hunting.  For years they have owned farm and ranch land in The Flint Hills and hunted it with friends and family.  The 2016/2017 hunting season was the first time these prime hunting lands have been made available to the public!  With the genetics of Kansas Whitetail deer and land that has been scarcely hunted . . . that's the recipe for a hunting adventure you will never forget!

South Fork Adventures has two hunting plots  . . . Tract 1 with 400 acres and 6 blinds/stands and Tract 2 with 300 acres and 8 blinds/stands.  These stands have been located using data gathered from years and years of scouting, hunting and research.  Portable blinds/stands can be located to your liking if you find a spot that looks good to you.


These properties each have ample draws, water and natural food for deer  . . . in general an awesome habitat to ensure great hunting.  Another unique element to hunting with South Fork Adventures is that we will only book one group at a time to hunt . . . you will never be hunting in competition with other hunting groups.  All of this just adds up to increase your chances for that once in a lifetime trophy!

All standard hunts are semi-guided hunts.  South Fork Adventures will set you up and show you the lay of the land, locations of deer stands, streams, feeders and in general make sure that you are comfortable with the property . . . know your way in and out and around and ensure you the best chance of a successful hunt.  If desired, a guided hunt is available for an extra fee.
