It's cold outside right now but the wind isn't that bad, and I might actually take the dogs out for a while later just to see if they can locate a covey or two. I have hunter's education this weekend and I am excited about having two young would-be hunters accompanied me. It reminds me of when I took my own two grandchildren for their classes. We are talking about the next generation of outdoorsmen/women who will be vital to the preservation of our natural resources and wildlife. Their importance can not be exaggerated.
The Sunday hunt looks like a go but I'm not sure about the afternoon Kansas City trip it's four hours of driving and Kate (my spouse) has to be at work early Monday morning.
I talked for about 30 minutes yesterday with cousin Terry McNeal and he'll be coming to hunt with me around the 18th which is perfect because most of the post should be open by then. It looks like among the two of us we'll have four dogs on the ground. I am really looking forward to seeing him. The only thing that would make it perfect is if his brother Bill could be here with us. I think Bill is probably the best shot among us and I know that his brother might disagree, but he certainly can out shoot me.
Enjoy the time off, enjoy your families, stay warm, stay safe, get into the spirit of the season, and make it a great weekend!
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.

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.
