Good evening CAustin. I’m about 25 miles east of Liberal. Lot of variety between you and I.
Thank you for the welcome!
My Kansas hunting has been at Sublette for pheasants. For many years, the Dallas Woods and Waters Club had an annual hunt there and we made the road trip up from Dallas in about 8 hours. Had great shooting and ate at a little cafe in town that always served calf fries.
Thanks! That’s beautiful country there in the flint hills. My brother is in Tomball and we’re trying to get a hog hunt together after the new year. Keeping my fingers crossed.
Welcome Dtec! I hail from central/eastern KS originally and still get back up there for some hunting. I like to make it out to western KS for prairie dogs and pheasants a few times a year, so happy to have you around.
Thank you. Sublette is 30 miles north of me. Lot of wide open space out here. Glad the hunting was good. I missed opening weekend, but am going next weekend with my cousin and some friends.
Must’ve been the cattleman cafe. Been in there several times over the years.
Thanks Tbitty! Welcome aboard to you too!
Prairie dogs are always a good time. Guys with cattle are usually pretty happy to have them hunted.
Welcome @dtec41 I have the good fortune of hunting just North of you, West of Garden City. Good mule deer, lots of quail especially since the drought broke. And starting to see more pheasants as I have been able to lower the coyote population a bit
I get through Liberal occasionally.
Hope you can make it to Africa sooner rather than later... I waited way too long myself, but have been trying to make up for that
Thank you Bob! It seems the mule deer are more plentiful out west with the whitetail getting better east of here. We’ve been fortunate the last two years to have above average rainfall and that’s really helped out. And, of course, you lowering the coyote population!!
"Must’ve been the cattleman cafe." It was the Cattleman!
Funny story there:
One year one of our group rode with some folks that stopped for beer and drank a good bit before reaching Sublette. Poor guy could not even walk, so another hunter and I carried him into the Cattleman with his arms around our shoulders. The hostess was concerned, but we told her he was disabled and could not walk in by himself. She was sympathetic and took us to a table in the farthest rightmost corner where we sat with a dozen or so hunters.
After a delicious appetizer of calf fries and then chicken fried steaks and dessert, we finally headed for the door.
When the hostess showed concern and surprise that our crippled friend could now walk, we told her it was the healing effect of the calf fries and departed with no small amount of laughter.
Unfortunately, he was assigned an upper bunk and it took two of us to get him into bed. Next morning he was OK and ready for breakfast.
!!! OMG, that is hilarious! Boys will be boys. It’s amazing what people will do to themselves when the rules have been suspended.
dtec41, you just keep hanging in there and participating on AH. Sooner or later you will come to the conclusion
"that all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy." If you can, come to Kansas City for the local chapter of the SCI's hunting expo in February. It is a fun time. I time my travel from Michigan to KC to visit my son and his family to coincide with the show. You will have the opportunity to meet some like-minded folks, many of whom are farmers as well. Who knows, you may be able to put your 375 H&H to work quicker than you think!
P.S.This show has a website, check out the "Auction Hunts" as they become available.
Welcome! Was up in Greensburg a couple weeks ago for some pheasant hunting, beautiful area
Funny you should quote the “all work and no play”. That was one of the reasons for joining AH. This is the first and only forum I have joined. I have read countless others and in almost every one, a topic becomes a shouting match between “factions” of members. For someone new to the forums, this is extremely off putting. From what I’ve read here in the last two years or so, the members have all been completely professional. That’s something that I wanted to be a part of. I guess you can call it a “baby step”, but it’s a change. A person should not expect a change unless they are willing to make a change. In a way, it’s like farming. You try something on a small scale and learn the best practice before applying it across the whole operation. I hope that’s what I’m doing here.
Thank you for the encouragement and a thank you to all of the members of AH. This is going to be fun!
This is the only forum I belong to as well. We have differences of opinion to be sure, but as you said for the most part it is kept on a professional basis. By that I mean we don't put down the person while differing with his/her opinion. Jerome and or Brickburn have "black-balled, limited access and or removed" persons that do not comply with these expectations. We have fun with each other & even include an emoji or two, but none of it is personal.
Welcome to AH!
Thank you! Greensburg has come a long way since the tornado pretty well leveled it. Hope the hunt was good!
Thank you Marius!
Absolutely! We can agree to disagree without being 3rd graders about it. Jerome and Brickburn do a fantastic job from what I’ve seen. Kudos.
Interestingly, my wife and son are in Ann Arbor for the Michigan/ Ohio St. game tomorrow. Small world.
