Thanks for your service, but I have spent way too much time finding my spots to hunt to give them up over a public internet forum :no: :no:

Well, in the first place you are not going to be on the MS (mississippi) river, you are going to be in the MO (Missouri river)

Also, be very careful as cyber scouts are generally hated on here. Good luck and remember that the MO has drowned many, many people.

If you are going to hunt the Missouri pay heed to what Tomcat is saying. It can be very treacherous . Many times you will be throwing out blocks in knee deep water and take that next step and you will be over your head, waving goodbye to your buddies as the river carries you away.
As far as remaining legal while hunting the river; There is an imaginary line that runs down the middle of the river so you will be required to have a license from the state on the particular side of the river you hunt . There are no reciprocal agreements between Missouri and Kansas on this issue . Double-dipping ; If you hold license in both states Mo./Ks. you are not allowed by Federal law to shoot a limit in Ks . then go to the other side of the river and continue hunting in Mo.. These provisions were explained to me in detail by a judge in Platte Co. Mo. at a cost of $80.00 I am passing them on for free. Good luck and good hunting and please stay safe out there.
P.S. Again thank you for your service to our country and I hope you enjoy your stay with us here in Kansas.

I will also add that the current and under tow of the MO is much stronger than it looks. I have been on the bank fishing and seen huge trees pop up out of no where, released for no reason from the under tow. BE CAREFUL on that river.

I wouldn't limit myself to hunting only the MO. Kansas has lots of other public land that you can use.

Chances are, you and I are never going to hunt together. I have been wrong on these matters before, you may be a great fella. But your #3 post got us off on the wrong foot.

You're ate up. If you think that Kansas having public land, like every other state, is a big secret, you're incredibly naive.

I know it. What I dont like about public hunting are sky busters, being elbow to elbow, and having people set up way to close to my spread. It can be good, but ya gotta pick your days...

I hunt all public and the majority of it is on weekends. IF i'm lucky i'll get one hunt on private land per season. I've never really had to deal with elbow to elbow, I just try to stay away from the popular places. I've had a few skybusters ruin groups of birds but thats nothing a few beers won't cure that night.
