Hunt with us for three days, and deepen your understanding of:
Seasonal Rio Grande Turkey Movement;
Post-Harvest Processing; and
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.
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!
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
Contact the Logan House Bed and Breakfast (785) 689-4308

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.
