Saint George, Kansas

Kate (my spouse) and I made it back home at around 1:p.m. yesterday. I had limited internet capabilities and so I was unable to doing any updating while in Alabama. My mother has both good and not so good days; we are schedule to go back down in June if she last that long. She has had a good and long life and I surely wouldn't put it past her to get better and live another ten years. Thanks to everyone for your prayers.

On the home front I have fourteen youth signed up but only mentors for ten; so if you would like to volunteer I can sure use your support. I hate to see any youth unable to participate due to lack of a mentor.

You only have a few days left to purchase the combo spring turkey permits (March 31). Dicks Sporting Goods and Wal Mart are still down but you can purchase your permits from Dereks Bait Shop and Daras located at the west end of Tuttle Creek Dam and at the State Park office located in the River Pond area of the dam.

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 recreational 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.

You can email me at;David@huntfortriley.com

Fort Riley Kansas is home to 101,000 acres of some of the best spring turkey hunting in the state of Kansas. Since the re-introduction of the wild turkey in the 80s the numbers have steadily increase. There are currently two distinct species located on post. These are the larger Eastern and the slightly smaller Rio Grande. There is also a hybrid of these two species. Since Kansas offers a rather long season from the second week in April until the end of May; allowing two gobblers which may be taken on the same day, hunters flock here from every part of the United States. It is a turkey hunters' paradise!;

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.
