THE SALINA JOURNAL ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT SUNDAY, MAY 6, 2000 9 Like to hunt and fish? Kansas offers some great places to enjoy your sport By the Kansas Department of Commerce and Housing Kansas is a hunting and fishing paradise f eatuiing a wide variety of outdoor sporting opportunities. From woodlands and prairies to streams, lakes and rivere, Kansas offers some of the best himting and fishing in the nation. Hunters ia Kansas will find wildlife ranging firom fiir-bearing to winged to hoofed. For winged hunters, the most popular birds to hunt in Kansas are the bobwhite quail and ringneck pheasant. They are so abundant that Kansas has consistently been rarUced as one of the top himting sites in the nation. Winged shooters can also take advantage of the abundance of ducks and geese at wetlands such as Cheyenne Bottoms near Great Bend and the numerous lakes throughout the state. Turkey has made an amazing comeback in Kansas and hunting is also allowed for chukar, partridge, sage grouse, and mourning dove. Kansas is one of only a few states that allow hunting of the lesser and greater prairie chicken. The Flint Hills region in the central part of the state is known as one of the best places in the nation to harvest these birds. Alor\g with winged hunting, Kansas is becoming known for producing record bucks. White tail deer are the most common, but mule deer can also be found in Kansas. Out of-state himters can obtain deer hunting pennits tiirough the draw system. Permits are also offered for antelope that is found in the west- em third of the state. Other animals open for hunting include the cottontail rabbit, coyote, red and grey fox, bobcat and raccoon. There is no shortage of available hunting sites in Kansas. Along with the tens of thousands of acres of public land, federal reservoirs and lakes open to hunters, the Walk-In Hunting Area (WIHA) program cooperates with landowners to allow hunting on approximately 425,000 acres of private land. The Kansas Walk-In Hunting Area Atias outlines areas open to the public for hunting and can be obtained through the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks (KDWP) at (316) 672-0719. There are also numerous Controlled Shooting Areas (CSAs) adding thousands more acres of land open to huntir^. Several hunting lodges offer complete packages including lodging, meals, vehicles, dogs and handlers; the hunters only need to bring shotgui\s and ammunition. Hunting preserves, hunting clubs, and high quality guiding services are also available throughout the state. With 25 megor reservoirs and numerous state and community lakes, Kansas is truly a fisherman's dream. Unlike other states, the fishing season is open year-round in Kansas. Two fish hatcheries, at Milford Lake and at the Wildlife and Parks Headquarters in Pratt, are open for tours and raise millions of fish each year for stocking the state's lakes. Museum includes dolls plus salute to Carver Interested in miniature tools, dinosaur bones or Native American artifacts? These are some of the items found at the Ottawa County Museum. Located at 102 S. Concord, Minneapolis, it receives about 3,000 visitors per year, said L.W. Coffman. Visitors can find other interesting items including a collection that salutes George Washington Carver. The educator and researdier, known across the world for work in crop rotation and development of peanut products, attended high school in Mimeapolis in the 1890s. The museum is also the home of the collection of dolls that belonged to the late Nina Eisenhauer, Bennington. \Tsitors can also eiyoy an early 1900s jail cell, quilts and the Elk horns that inspired the luune for one of Miime^olis' first mills. Cof&nan said during the 1860s, Israel Markley, the founder, of Minneapolis, went elk hunting and shot an elk Soon afterward, a party of Native Americans came over the hUl. Rather than have a confirontation, Cof&nan said, the two parties came to a compromise. "He took the horns and the Indians took the meat Everyone was happy," Coffinan said. The animal's rack soon lent its name and image to Markley's first business: Elk Horn Mill. Admission is firee. Hours are 1 to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. For information, call 785392-3621.
