Has anyone heard of a outfitter business called Shallow creek outfitters in Salina Kansas? It is run by a guy named Roamina Dave. Any info on the outfitter or for that matter the Salina area turkey population would be greatly appreciated.

Haven't heard of them. Are you glued down to getting a rio in Kansas or are you open to any other state?

Check the king ranch in Texas. It is an awesome place and there is usually no problem in killing birds there. We guide there every year and have great success. Are you closer to Kansas than Texas?

Kansas is 10 hrs and texas is 20 + i was looking at a couple of places down there but one of the guys going is coming down from Minn and that adds a extra day for him right there. i have heard alot of really good things about kings Ranch maybe that will be my whitetail hunt destination.

Sounds great. You will not be disappointed in the whitetail hunting either. Lots of rattling and there is usually several bucks that come running.
Good luck on your rio and if I can ever help you out, give me a shout.

I have busted a few beaks really near there! Birds are plentiful. I would try and go last week of April.

I wouldn't waste my money on an outfitter. There's too much public land that has birds. Most private land is public if you ask. Good luck!

That is somthing that i have been considering as well. just figuring out the best areas for Rios would be the key.

Being from Wisconsin hunting Rio Grand turkeys in Kansas is your closest option and Kansas does a great job with their WIHA, walk in hunter access, program. The WIHA program allows the public to hunt private land and the KDWPT marks the areas with signs and also had Google Earth maps of the WIHA land. Just be sure to look at the turkey species distribution map to see where the line is.

Good luck.
