Friday, September 30, 2016 I attended a board meeting of the Fort Riley Outdoorsmen's Group yesterday (the first one in months) and got some clarification on the new access procedures for recreating on post. Four corners will indeed be closed effective Monday, however Estes Road leading on and off old highway 77, will be open 24/7. The only time that old 77 will be closed is when the post goes to a heighten alert in which case the whole post will be closed to recreation. That out of the way, I did manage to get my two dogs out on a scouting trip and in the space of a couple of hours they located a pheasant, a covey of really young quail, and not one but two flocks of some pretty nice size turkeys. The season opens tomorrow for fall turkey. Wamego is having its' Oztober Festival this weekend, and the weather is supposed to be perfect. Make 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.
Because I am no longer fully retired my availability to personally guide is severely limited. I will however be available either by phone or e-mail to answer any questions you might have and to offer suggestions as to where you might start. I will continue to guide on weekends and days off.

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 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 post
In addition to a valid Kansas Resident or non-resident hunting license, post regulations have specific requirements.
