Weather and Climate:
In Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska, you can enjoy four distinct seasons, each with its own unique qualities. Winter blizzards, violent windstorms, and heavy rains are common throughout the region, and on occasion rapid temperature extremes.
Generally the summers are quite warm, the winters are mild, and the humidity is on the moderate side. January is the coldest month, with average high temperatures near 30 degrees. July is the warmest month, with average high temperatures near 90 degrees. Much hotter summers and harsh, cold winters are not uncommon.
We are located along the Kansas and Missouri state line. This area of the Midwest is home to a mix of cropland, pastures and native prairie along with many acres of CRP and natural woodlands. Timbered areas consist of mostly red and white oak, hickory, elm and cottonwood trees. Hedge rows and cedar thickets in and out of the previously coal mined land areas also provide secluded bedding areas for whitetails. Strict management in both states has resulted in a large area holding a healthy herd of whitetails. Hundreds of book deer are shot here every season.
Eastern and Rio Hybrid Wild turkeys are in abundance on our Kansas and Missouri farms, with our Nebraska hunting areas holding Merriam's, Rio and Hybrid turkeys, along with a good population of whitetail and mule deer.
