Monday evening my little football team played their last game of the season and what a game! It ended with a come from behind victory over Chapman 13 to 7. That put them in the winner's bracket at 3 and 2. Great season! Great kids! Great Assistants! Great parents!

Tuesday, I did take the fly rod and head over to Cameron Springs. I am sorry to say that the trout have not been stocked yet but I did spend a good three hours trying hard to get one of the giant left overs from last season but nothing I had in the box seem to appeal to them.

Yesterday I played nine holes of golf at Wildcat Creek and ended up three over par which is two strokes worse than my last game. Today I have some football equipment that needs to be cleaned and put away for next season and then (time permitting) I might head back to the golf course or try fishing Rocky Ford.

On the quail hunting side, if you're planning on hunting Fort Riley don't even plan on coming out here until after December the 18th because the post will be closed. Depending on weather, a trip after December the 18th might be well worth your effort as the quail will have had no pressure and will be like opening weekend. There are a lot of quail.

Until next time, stay warm and safe, get into the outdoors and take a soldier, youth or both with you. Make it a great day!

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.

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.
