It is another overcast and gloomy day in Kansas. The high is forecasted to reach forty-four degrees. I'll believe that when I see it. There is another storm front coming in tomorrow night bringing with it more snow. That should make for an interesting football game Sunday at Arrowhead.

Yesterday, I hunted quail with Kentuckian Bob Roberts in the fridge with snow. Bob and I were checked by the game warden around one pm and he informed us that we were the only two hunters crazy enough to be checked in and hunting on the entire post. He said that when he saw he had two hunters who were check-in, he couldn't believe it and just had to find us. He seemed more impressed with the fact that we were in fact out hunting and less impressed with our mental aptitudes.

Believe it or not, we did actually find a partial covey in a bean field late and I shot one. The point and retrieve made by Bob's English Pointer (a young dog) was a pleasure to watch. Bob is on his way back to Kentucky trying to stay ahead of the aforementioned front, but I made him promise that he'll come back next November when I can show him how really great Fort Riley quail hunting can be.

He did leave with me for my tasting pleasure (and somewhat expertise) two bottle of Kentucky Bourbon one rye and one regular. I am to try them both and let him know my preference. I think I'm up to the task. Be safe, stay warm, and 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.

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.
