How about some short introductions?


Where are you from in Kansas?

What kind of game do you like to hunt the most?

Who taught you how to hunt and when was your first hunting trip?

Do you use a rifle shotgun, or bow? What kind?

What is your favorite hunting memory?

What is your dream hunt?

I am from NE Kansas, 30 miles north of Topeka. I hunt whitetail about 3 miles from my house. I grew up hunting birds, dove, quail and pheasant. I started hunting deer about 4 years ago and really enjoy it. Dad stopped hunting because of health reasons and gave me his 30-06. My favorite hunting memory was my first deer. A button buck during the 2nd firearm season in January. Not sure what my dream hunt would be. I have to hunt a little longer before I would feel comfortable spending a lot of money on a hunt.

Wichita area. I use rifles, handguns, and shotguns. First trip was to Colorado for elk in about 1972. Planning for africa in '06. I like to hunt most big game with the exception of deer, they are getting boring

Right now i'm temporarily living in the KC area. But can't wait to move out, and back to the country. I mainly bowhunt. And whitetails are by far my favorite.

I'm from NJ but own a farm in Lenordville KS. Bought it just for hunting. Plan on moving to Manhattan as soon as I sell my farm in NJ. My favorite is bow hunting whitetails and shed hunting in the spring. I think my dream hunt would be to shoot a B & C on my farm after putting in so much work to improve the hunting there. There are lots of quail, turkey and phesants there also.

Stationed at Fort Riley. Been there since June 2005 but, have not been "physically" there long enough to get a KS hunt in yet..........
Hopefully when I redeploy next month, my 09 year will be better.

I live and work in East Central Kansas. Olathe, to be exact...just around the corner from the new Bass Pro.

Bowhunting is a way of life for me. Whitetails and turkeys are what I hunt mostly, but I've been to Western Kansas a couple of times chasing pronghorns, and won a hog hunt to the Chambers ranch in Sabinal at the local archery shops Dart tournament few years ago.

I'd really like to chase elk in the mountains sometime soon, and a spot 'n stalk bear hunt is on the wish list, too.

My grandpa taught us how to shoot firearms when we were little, and we used to chase rabbits with him and our beagle.
