I had my dogs out yesterday for about an hour and a half hoping to bust some turkeys but we were unable to find any. I was in a good location but the birds must have been moved at that particular time to a different location. That's not uncommon for turkeys that have been known to range in a fifteen mile circle and at any given day can be found right back in the same spot.

In the evening I shared some time at the golf course with my nine year old granddaughter Antonia who has suddenly developed an interest in not only in golf but also in the batting gages. While we were at the course I ran into my old golfing buddy Rufus Bandy. Rufus has an eight acre lake/pond (I'm not sure at what acreage a pond ceases to be a pond and becomes a lake) that is loaded with big bass; so today he is going to pick me up at around 3 and we're going (fly rods in hand) out to see if we can have little fun. I probably should be out cutting grass one last time but naaaaa it'll wait. Make a great day!

The 2017 Hunting Regulations Summary

The 2017 Fall Hunting Atlas

Fort Riley Kansas is home to 101,000 acres of the some of the best quail hunting in the state of Kansas.  It is also home to a wide variety of game birds.  Good numbers of doves, quail, turkey, prairie chicken and pheasants are taken every year. 

30 Years of Hunting Fort Riley

I started hunting post in the 70s. After retiring from the army in 1988, I bought a home and have hunted the  post every year since.  I have hunted every inch of the post and if there is a covey of quail or flock of turkeys I don't know of, then they simply don't exist.  There is a common misconception that civilians can't hunt on the fort.  There are some special requirements that have to be met but hunting on post is open to everyone. 

What you will need to hunt on Fort Riley

In addition to a valid Kansas Resident or non-resident hunting license, a Kansas Turkey Permit, and a Fort Riley Access Permit. There are exceptions hunters age younger than 16 or older than 64 and all ranks E4 and below are not required to have an Access Permit. 

The below links are really worth your time and effort and are STRONGLY recommended if you have never hunted the fort before:
