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, in Phillips and Norton Counties, in both river-bottom and agricultural habitats.

2023 Spring Turkey Season Dates:
  • Youth/Disabled Season: April 1 - 11, 2023
  • Adult Archery–Only Season: April 3 - 11, 2023
  • Regular Season: April 12 - May 31, 2023

Hunt Fee = $1,200/hunter for one bird for an UP TO* three (3)-day hunt.

*To maximize the amount of rest our birds are able to get between hunts, your party's hunt stops when your party's tags are filled; we do not go out and call/decoy birds unless we are actively trying to fill a tag(s). I.e. if your party kills their birds on day one, your hunt stops on day one.  ...if all tags are filled by the morning of day two, your hunt stops on day two.

Up to one parent may tag along during a youth hunt. Additional days beyond the initial three can be added at $250/day, subject to scheduling availability. 

In years when we have a conducive crop rotation, and our bird population can support it, hunters may be able to harvest a second bird (with appropriate KS spring turkey Game Tag) for an additional $750. Second-bird opportunities are at Roe Hunting Resources' sole discretion and will be discussed prior to your hunt.

A 50% deposit is required to reserve your scheduled hunt, with full payment received a minimum of 10 days prior to your hunt. Deposits are non-refundable.

NOTE: Hunt Fee does NOT include the cost of your Kansas hunting license, turkey permit(s), or lodging/meals. Permits and licenses can be purchased online through Kansas' online licensing system, through all licensed agents (one is in Logan at the grocery store), or from Kansas Department of Wildlife & Parks offices.

Lodging PLUS Dinner at RHR guest-house = $100/person/night.

Lodging ONLY = Variable. Some houses are $60/night, some are $75/night, and some are $50/room/night depending on the particular guest house and number of guests.

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.
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!

Respectfully, we must insist that all guests be non-smokers. Additionally, for those wishing to stay at the guest-houses, please be aware some are "tobacco-free" options per the desires of the landowners. 

We are based out of the small city of Logan, Kansas.

Several lodging options are available for hunters depending on what you're looking for.  For those interested in providing for their own meals, besides the regular hotels and restaurants in either Norton or Phillipsburg (the closest towns with hotel accommodations), there are also privately owned guest houses in and around the City of Logan, and – when available – RHR's own guest house. Lodging prices vary depending on the specific guest house, the number of guests, etc. so if you are interested in a "provide your own meals guest-house" option, e-mail us early so we can share pricing, and reserve your spot ASAP.

If hunters are looking for a "lodging with evening meals provided" option, RHR can arrange that as well. If you'd like us to provide for dinners during your stay, you'll enjoy a hot, home-cooked dinner each day of the hunt. Because folks have such wildly different preferences for their choice of breakfasts and lunches, RHR leaves those meals up to the hunter to provide. For the dinners, we are able to accommodate most dietary needs if you tell us well in advance of your arrival.

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 Larry Riggs with Kansasland Realty (785) 543-4440
    • 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.
