21st Annual Youth and Women's Pheasant Hunt

  • Glen Elder Dam Rd Glen Elder, KS, 67446 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism (KDWPT) and sponsoring partners will be holding their 2017 Youth and Women’s Celebrity Pheasant Hunt at Waconda Lake on Saturday, December 9th.  The event will begin in the morning at 9:00 am at Glen Elder State Park.  We’ll start with a pre-hunt safety talk and participants will be divided into hunting groups.  The hunters, guides, and mentors will then head out to various refuge areas (where only a very limited amount of hunting is allowed) around Glen Elder Reservoir and hunt for the remainder of the morning and early afternoon.  A noon meal will be provided for all participants by the Waconda Lake Association.

Women of any age and youth ages 11 – 16 are eligible and encouraged to apply for this hunt.  This hunt is geared toward providing a comfortable and positive hunting environment for new or inexperienced hunters. Previous hunting experience is not required, and some shotguns and ammunition can be provided to applicants who do not have access to their own equipment.  Applications should be made by contacting the Glen Elder Area Office at 785-545-3345 (8:00 – 4:30 weekdays) starting November 16th and ending Friday, November 30, 2018. Up to 40 applicants will be selected to participate in the hunt. 

Participants will be divided into different groups based on their hunting experience and skill levels.  The most inexperienced hunters will start their activities with some basic field safety exercises and trap shooting, and progress towards live hunting later in the day.  The participants that have some prior pheasant hunting experience will spend more of their time in the field pursuing wild roosters through typical thick, birdy cover.

Extra volunteers will be needed for the event to serve as hunting and instructional mentors.  For further questions concerning the event or if you would like to be involved, please contact Chris Lecuyer at the KDWPT Glen Elder Area Office 785-545-3345.

Tuttle Creek Youth Deer Hunt

  • Tuttle Creek Lake Visitor Center (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

If you’re a young hunter interested in learning how to hunt deer or if you are a hunter with a disability and need some assistance, read on. Plans are underway for the 15th Annual Youth-Handicap Assisted Deer Hunt at Tuttle Creek Lake. Kansas youth age 11 through 16 and Kansas residents with a certified disability are eligible. The 2018 hunt will occur Oct. 6-7, during the Pre-rut Whitetail Antlerless-only deer season. 

 Interested hunters must apply by August 25, 2018. Contact Wyatt Cooper with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) at 785-539-8511, ext. 3170, wyatt.m.cooper@usace.army.mil, or Kansas Department of Wildlife Parks and Tourism (KDWPT) game warden Ben Jedlicka at 785-256-3614, ben.jedlicka@ks.gov with questions or to receive an application.

Selected hunters are required to attend a safety presentation and rifle sight-in at the Fancy Creek Range near Randolph on Sunday, September 16, 2018. The pre-hunt sight-in will begin at 4:00 p.m., and sponsors will provide an evening meal for all involved. Hunters should bring their rifle, ammo and an appetite. During the sight-in, Fancy Creek Range instructors will work with participants so they qualify by hitting a "pie-plate-sized" target two out of three shots at 50 yards. License and permit requirements will be discussed. Limited scholarships are available for those in need.

On the mornings of Oct. 6 and 7, hunters and guides will meet for breakfast at 5:00 a.m. at the Tuttle Creek Lake Visitor Center, 5020 Tuttle Creek Blvd., Manhattan. After breakfast, hunters and their guides will travel to hunting blinds, which will be assigned to them before the hunt. Arrangements have been made to have harvested deer transported to and processed free of charge at area lockers

The Riley County Fish and Game Association, KDWPT and the USACE at Tuttle Creek are sponsors of this event. Other contributors include, the Friends of Fancy Creek Range, the Kansas City Chapter of Safari Club International, the Lloyd Johnson Outdoor Youth Fund, and the Tuttle Creek Lake Association. GTB Custom Meats of Riley and Clay Center Locker will provide basic processing of harvested deer free of charge. 

Special hunts and the Fancy Creek Shooting Range facility are examples of beneficial programs funded by license sales revenue and the federal Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration (WSFR) program. WSFR funding comes from excise taxes on the sale of firearms, ammunition and archery equipment for wildlife and shooting range programs and fishing equipment, boats and motors, and motorboat fuel for fisheries programs. Kansas received nearly $20 million through WSFR in 2017, utilizing license and permit revenue to make the required 25 percent match.

Glen Elder Youth Dove Hunt

The Osborne County Pheasants Forever Chapter and the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism (KDWPT) are inviting young hunters to participate in an opening day dove hunt. This hunt is expected to provide the kids with plenty of shooting action as the birds flock to grain fields for morning feeding.
The hunt will be for youth between the ages of 10 and 16 who have had limited previous dove hunting experience. Kids who have not hunted before will be given preference to participate. Only the kids will be hunting, and each hunter will have at least one adult mentor at their side to assist them. All hunters must be strong enough to handle their guns in a safe manner.
The hunt will take place early on the opening morning of the season Saturday, September 1st, on the Glen Elder Wildlife Area. A managed crop field on the lake property will be reserved exclusively for this youth hunting event. Hunters will meet before sunrise on the morning of the hunt at the Glen Elder Wildlife Area shop in Cawker City to organize and be paired up with adult mentors before heading to the field. After the hunt is finished all participants will enjoy a free lunch provided by Osborne County Pheasants Forever where stories of the morning’s hunt can be re-lived and shared.
Young hunters who would like to participate in the hunt will need to pre-register by calling the Glen Elder Area Office at 785-545-3345 (8:00 – 4:00 weekdays). Signup deadline will be Wednesday, August 29th. Spots are limited, so hunters are encouraged to register early.
Shotguns can be provided for those kids who do not have one. 12 and 20 gauge shotgun shells will be provided for the youth hunters. Hunters 16 and older will be required to have a hunting license and HIP stamp prior to hunting.
For questions, more information, or if you would like to assist with this event, please contact either Chris Lecuyer (KDWPT) at 785-545-3345 or John Cockerham (PF) at 785-346-6527.
