Saint George, Kansas
There was no opportunity to hunt yesterday, it rained all day and that for us is a good thing. It doesn't mean much to someone who lives here and has a long season to hunt but if I were someone who had driven seventeen to twenty hours to get here and then only had a limited time to be here, a loss day would have been very disappointing.
This morning there is fog on the ground and the temperature is in its 30s, but the sun is supposed to show its face later today and the temperatures will double. With so much of the post closed for training, I think this morning after a slow start I will concentrate on some walk-in or public hunting sites. Maybe I'll get lucky.
Stay safe and make it a great day!

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.

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 you will need a Unit 3 spring turkey tag. There are exceptions hunters age younger than 16 or older than 64 and all ranks E4 and below are not required to have an Fort Riley Access Permit.
The below links are really worth your time and effort and are STRONGLY recommended if you have never hunted the fort before:
