We passed thirty-two new would be hunters yesterday in our hunter's education class. How many of them will actually take up and pursue the sport I have no way of knowing but there are now thirty-two more Kansans who are qualified to buy a license and attempt to become hunters. To those students brand new to the sport, I strongly recommend that they get with an experienced hunter and let them tutor them. If you don't know an experience hunter drop me a line that's what I do and if I can't take you myself, I will put you in touch with someone who can.

It's just a tad cold today with a little snow on the ground but the wind seems to be very light. This is my day of rest, so I am headed to church with my spouse. I am not a particularly religious person (not in the sense of organize religion) but a little churching never done a body any harm that I can tell, and I do like the pastor over at Saint Luke's (a gentle, intelligent man and a fine speaker).

Heading into this week of thanksgiving get out and enjoy your family and give thanks to those in your life who have blessed you along the way. Make it a great day! David

About my site:

THERE IS NO CHARGE FOR MY SERVICES. Hunt Fort Riley is a NON PROFIT WEB SITE I do not ask for or expect donations. I provide this site for the sole purpose of getting people out of the barracks and into the outdoors, introducing soldiers, youth and the handicap to the sport of hunting and fishing while providing healing to wounded warriors, and help those who desire to discover the many resources available on Fort Riley while doing so in a safe and legal way with the emphasis on safety.

I am available to guide on a first come first serve basis. If you would like to schedule a fishing or hunting trip drop me an e-mail with some dates and the type of fishing or hunting you're interested in doing.

Remember that my services are FREE but my priority is military, handicap, youth and novice (beginners) which means, that it is possible we might have one extra hunter with our group.

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.

The doves are coming!

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 say this not to brag but simply to state a fact of years of hnting every inch of the fort that if there is a dove field, covey of quail, or flock of turkeys I don't know about, I don't think they 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 post

In addition to a valid Kansas Resident or non-resident hunting license, post regulations have specific requirements and sign in/out procedures.
