Saint George, Kansas
It's the middle of the week and I thought it might be time to let everyone know that I am not frozen yet but still hanging on. According to the weather people we are heading for about three days of thawing out, starting tomorrow and running through Saturday when once again Sunday we will brace for yet another artic blast. The next three days we can look forward to reasonable 40s and 50s.
The Three Rivers Chapter of the NWTF will be having their annual banquet on Saturday, February 3, in the Houston Street Ballroom, located at 427 Houston Street in Manhattan. The doors will be open at 5:30 p.m. with dinner at 7:00 p.m. I will be posting advance ticket application for you to download no later than Monday. In the meantime if you need more information contact John Adams (785)539-1586 or e-mail him at: firstname.lastname@example.org .
ATTENTION SPRING TURKEY HUNTERS
This years' Youth Turkey Hunt will be Saturday April 7 and Sunday April 8. There will be an orientation of hunters and mentors on Friday April 6. I am looking for volunteer mentors. If you are interested and can commit to these dates, please let me know by February the 15th. I will be posting a flyer for this event March 1 and this year the flyer will contain slots. These slots will be based on the number of mentors I have available as of February the 15th; so it?s important that I get your commitment by that date.
Stay warm, stay safe 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).

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 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 Fort Riley
In addition to a valid Kansas Resident or non-resident hunting license, and a Fort Riley Access Permit. There are exceptions hunters age younger than 16 or older than 64 and all ranks E4 and below are not required to have an Access Permit.
The below links are really worth your time and effort and are STRONGLY recommended if you have never hunted the fort before:
