Kansas Rio Grande Turkey Hunts
Roe Hunting Resources has always been about education and sharing in the experience that comes from it. Now, we offer the ULTIMATE way to extend your learning and adventures in turkey hunting.

Hunt with us for three days, and deepen your understanding of:

  • River-Bottom Habitats;
  • Seasonal Rio Grande Turkey Movement;
  • Turkey Behavior;
  • Scouting;
  • Set-ups;
  • Calling Strategies;
  • Decoying Strategies;
  • Post-Harvest Processing; and
  • Trophy Preservation


Hunts occur on thousands of acres of private property in Kansas Unit 1, where you’re allowed to harvest up to two spring turkeys with appropriate licensing and prior arrangement with RHR.




The Hunt
Conducted across a mix of agriculture and river-bottom habitats near the small City of Logan, RHR's Rio Grande Turkey Hunts focus on effective calling, strategic set-ups, and working birds to the hunters, rather than spot and stalk, or sitting over corn feeders. While those other methods can be effective for killing a bird, Chris prefers the more enriching experience of putting a bird in a hunter's lap, and letting them experience the thrill of wild, free-ranging Rio Grande turkeys actively engaging (if not flat-out beating up) a spread of decoys!  Hunts can be for up to two adults at a time, or a parent and two kids (Chris truly does specialize in highly successful, and educational, youth hunts), and will always be with Chris right there with you to help you call, pick set-ups, or just plain learn more about KS river-bottom long-beards; all hunts are fully guided unless otherwise arranged for a DIY type of hunt. Whether for youth, archery, or shotgun, and regardless of whether or not you're a beginner, or an accomplished hunter working on your NWTF "Slam," Chris can help you experience a turkey hunt that you'll not soon forget!


Lodging
We are based out of the small City of Logan, Kansas.

For an additional nightly fee per person, you can stay with us in our home, which is a modest, newly remodeled turn-of-the-century house on the west end of town. It’s not “glamorous” by any means, but it comfortably provides everything you and a friend/family member need for an enjoyable stay. Those that stay with us enjoy three meals per day, with a plentiful hot meal for dinner, and a mix of hot and “cold” meals at breakfast and lunch. We are able to accommodate most dietary needs if you tell us well in advance of your arrival.  Our guest room can sleep up to three; we have a queen bed, and a set of bunk-beds with full and twin mattresses.

Respectfully, we must insist that all guests be non-smokers, as Chris is allergic to cigarette smoke - even on clothes. Also, we do have a very friendly dog and multiple lovable cats at the house, so if you're allergic to pets, please consider one of the alternatives below.

Area Lodging Alternatives:
    • Camp at the small City-owned campground for a nominal fee, which has restrooms (toilet and sink, no shower), camper hookups and water
    • Camp at Prairie Dog State Park outside of Norton
    • Contact the Corner Cottage (785) 689-8419
    • Contact the Logan House Bed and Breakfast (785) 689-4308
    • Stay at a hotel in Phillipsburg, Norton, or Hill City
Distances and availability to restaurants or grocery stores (some are closed Sundays and Mondays) may be an issue, so we recommend you plan your meals (and hunting licenses) in advance.

*NOTE: This does NOT include the cost of your Kansas hunting license, turkey permit(s), or lodging/meals.

Some hunts may be videoed by Chris to be used as part of Roe Hunting Resources’ turkey hunting educational videos, and/or the web series “Through the SeasonsTM.” Hunters who wish to have a personal copy of the hunt video may negotiate that request with Chris after the hunt.
