Hunting from Texas Hunters Ed

Postby rlp1970 » Mon Sep 18, 2006 6:11 pm

Hey Guys,
I am from Texas and will be coming to the Cheyenne Bottoms the 1st weekend in November. I have never been hunting in KS just heard of the awesome stories. I was born in 1970 and am exempt from hunters ed in Texas. We will be hunting 4 days will I need the hunters ed for KS?

Does anyone know what the fine is with no hunters ed course??
Thanks

I just moved here from Michigan and when I went and got a hunting license I just told them that I didn't know where the hunter ed certificate was and they said that was fine. Then in the field I asked a Conservation Officer what the law is on that and he told me that if you are over 21 you don't need to worry about a hunter safety certificate. So you should be good. Good Luck :thumbsup:

rip1970, in kansas if you were born before 1959 your exempt, and while it did use to be easy to fool them not so anymore, I moved here from WA state 10 yrs ago and my WA hunt ed card was invalid so i had to take that class with a bunch of ten yr olds. your best option is to see if theres some special online course, or buy your KS lisence on the computer and print it off yourself that way you can just make up the numbers. good luck, Ill look for TX plates that weekend as I'm sure i'll be out there that weekend too :salude:

rip1970, i'm gonna be trout fishin in arkansas that weekend, but i'll probably come out there that mon. - wed., so i don't have to sweat the crowds, i'll either be camping at the cheyenne campground or staying at the wagon wheel inn in elinwood, if your gonna be around let me know, i'll be driving a black dodge 2500 v-10, or a 4-door blue king ranch f-150, or a new red 4-wheel f-150 with ill. firefighter plates (the dodge is mine, i don't have 3 trucks) :thumbsup: :salude:

I was going to say webfeet! I thought you must have made out really well after the deer accident. Oh wait, you did with the Dodge. :thumbsup:

Are you hitting the white river down in AR? Dad and I go down to Norfork quite a bit to fly fish down there. Haven't hit the white river yet though. Usually head over to branson and fish Taneycomo, Bennett Springs, or Roaring River as well. Good luck to you guys!

Hey Webfeet!! I have to hunt the weekend due to the distance from Texas. Are the crowds really bad with that much water? In Texas we have to fight for spots on weekends is it the same way there?
Thanks

my plans have changed i will be there that weekend, pm me and we'll figure it out, you can flip a coin as to the crowds, theres so much ground that it typically doesn't matter.

Welcome back Mr. Webfeet. Did you just get back from Trout Fishing? If want to hear some good fishing stories if you did.

I was at the Bottoms last weekend and there are plenty of places to get around without being too crowded. I hunted it for the first time and thought it was going to be shoulder to shoulder, but it wasn't bad at all. Good luck to you guys! :thumbsup:

Have fun, birds, but they are all smart by now. We ended up up only getting a few ringnecks and a 2 coots. Good luck to you guys!

Oh hell, you should see all of them coots out there. I actually will admit I never did shoot one, but the other guy in the boat, he needed some target practice. They were flying pretty good opening day. Needless to say, he isn't living the coots down! :toofunny:
