To be honest is sounds cheap..
They also supply the horses and they will help us get to our camp site anywhere from 8 to 10 miles in... they also will send in riders 1-2 times a day to check on us.. The have 8 camps across Area 66 with a limit of no more than 6 hunters per camp (there will be 5 of us)
I just meant that the muzzleloader hunt there must hyped up by someone. It takes 4 points for a resident, but 10 for a nonresident. Should tell you something when the out of staters value a hunt 2.5 times as much as the residents. It takes 0 points to draw in rifle season for a resident.
But that does seem cheap. I'd be careful. Good area though.
Like most hunters we all are looking for something to keep the deer on our hunting ground and to bring more deer into our hunting ground. Most of the time we just don’t have the room or funding for this to even happen. We lease a lot of smaller properties here in Kansas and we know that the farmers are needing every little bit of ground they can get to make a living. So if they give up any ground at all it’s not much. As I was talking to one farmer he told me he could give up about a half acre...
