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.
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 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.
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.
How many times have you wished for a better view across a clear cut, an agriculture field or down a powerline?
Ever wanted to get a little higher to try to get above a deer’s nose?
Have you ever wanted a taller stand because… well… just because?
Here is an example of a stand I made a few years ago and it has some very real advantages and a few disadvantages.
commanding view from the stand
able to accommodate two hunters, perfect for parent / child hunts
hunters are well...
