How about explaining things to me. I look at the East Low prairie zones, early and late and it looks like gerrymandering to me. Or did someone give his five year old some markers and turn him loose?

Tom Bidrowski can explain it to you.
If you can reach him.

Some areas wanted in, some wanted out and a blacktop road had to be a dividing line instead of gravel. I think that’s the story

Good quality entertainment in the next 2 days ahead.

The Cheyenne Bottoms Show airs the third Wednesday of every month at 8:30 a.m. on 1590 KVGB & 95.5 FM. Gonna hear some depressing news that there won't be any water at the bottoms this year unless it rains really, really hard this summer.

Commish meeting on Thursday, I am goin to guess the NR issue will not even be brought up and will the outfitters show up? Will Rider get his January days??

I asked this exact question at one point because most of the KS river is in the early or late zone, which frustrated me because it stays open and could be hunted during January when it gets cold and the answer is that it’s based on historical shallow water (marsh) freeze dates. Not surprisingly, it freezes earliest in western Kansas and gets later as you move east across the state. CB and the other WMAs are usually (but not always) frozen solid by mid-December, Neosho sometimes never freezes except sheet ice.

Marshes on WMAs (and private marshes and pasture ponds) get the most use so they try to maximize opportunity. I got over my KS river gripes because I can go to the SE zone for ducks, or just target geese since the season stays open.

That’s the habitat answer, as far as the exact boundaries, it’s think there’s a human element there where they want to use blacktop roads that are easy to identify and very well marked versus county road 123. Can’t really tell the game warden you mixed up where I-35 is

Hope that helps
