destination
a
in
Kansas that has
lots of public hunting
access? Head to Geary
County.
The Milford Wildlife
Area, managed by the
Kansas Department of
Wildlife and Parks, offers
one of the largest blocks of
public hunting land in the
state - 19,000 acres. That
land - found mostly on
the west and north sides of
Milford Lake - features
grasslands, brush, timber
and
wetlands
to
accommodate a variety of
hunting.
Deer: With a combination of timber,
thick grass and brush, the Milford
Wildlife Area offers some of the best
public deer hunting in the state.
Bowhunters take trophy bucks in the
more remote areas of the wildlife area.
Quail: Turn the
bird dogs loose. The
Milford Wildlife
Area
has
an
abundance of good
quail cover and good
numbers of birds
hiding in it. It's not
always easy walking, but
it's worth the work.

Waterfowl: The Milford Wetlands,
off the Republican River on the
reservoir's north end, contain eight
marshes ranging in size from 60 to 260
acres. Those public hunting areas
surround the large Steve Lloyd Refuge.
When water and wetland vegetation
are right, they can attract large numbers
of migrating ducks and geese.
Pheasants: While the best pheasant
hunting in Kansas is generally found
west of Milford, the area does include
some birds and often presents mixed
bag opportunities with quail.
Fort Riley
But the Milford Wildlife Area is only
part of what Geary County offers in the
Geary County Visitors Guide
way of hunting. The Fort Riley Army
Base also provides opportunities to
those who get special permits.
Hunters can go out on land often
used for Army training on days when
exercises are not being conducted. Fort
Riley is known for its outstanding quail
hunting, but also has turkeys, deer,
pheasants and prairie chickens. The fort
is also one of the state's best locations
to bag an elk.
