I just moved to NE Kansas, and I am getting ready for bow season, I was looking for places to hunt, and was wondering if anyone happened to have any recommendations or advice for public land...

Public hunting land in NE Kansas

Been a few years since I have hunted public land but check out the Walk in Hunting maps.  Sure you can find something there to hunt!

Google: Public hunt areas of Kansas. This was the first link that showed up. It comes straight from the Kansas dept of game website. Looks to be 108 places to go hunting on public land. Good luck and show us some pics when you stick one.

I was going to ask that.  I might be moving to Omaha, and was wondering what the public land availability was for hunting....

If you do move, the best way

If you do move, the best way maybe to just go knock on some doors. My friends did just that several years ago and now have a pretty good place to hunt. Nomial fees involved when considering what the cost would be if they had to lease the land.

Actually, I have been hanging

Actually, I have been hanging out on a Nebraska hunting website and have someone on there who has already extended an open invitation.  He says it's his family's farm, and nobody hunts it.  Could turn out to be a sweet connection, assuming I can actually get a job.....

I have heard that the vast majority of Kansas is private. Good luck tracking down a public patch though. And it might be worth asking landowners if they need help mending fencelines or other chores like that to gain access to private.

Walk-in hunting

Kansas has some pretty good spots for WIHA,I live beside one and it gets pounded real hard. I use to see deer all the time on those properties but since it's been WIHA the deer are hard to find. The landowners are getting harder to get also in my area. Your best choice I think would be the State parks,lots of hunting there and not to many people in there.
