No Place Like Home for Young Kansas Deer Hunter
By: Lynn Burkhead
When it comes to white-tailed deer hunting, there is no place like home.
If that home is somewhere in the whitetail rich state of Kansas, that is. Because once again, the Sunflower State has provided anotherNorth American Whitetail big buck story, this time from the Fort Scott area.
That’s the area that young nine-year old Creed Clayton – who had his birthday only one week before his fateful hunt, according to mom Courtney – lives and hunts deer with his family.
There’s plenty of whitetail hunting experience in that family: dad Chad is a longtime hunter, chief guide and hunting supervisor on the family land.
Earlier this fall, Chad helped guide his son Chayden on a successful outing, one where Creed’s older brother took a good Kansas deer and put the first venison of the year in the family freezer.
