Kansas BHA helps prep new walk-in area for public hunting access

Leaders and members of the Kansas Chapter readied a newly enrolled 7,700 acre property for participation in the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks’ Walk in Hunting Access program in late July. The state's WIHA program has opened private land to public hunting since 1995.

A crew of 19 volunteers and KDWP staff posted signage on 21 miles of perimeter fence on the property in south central Kansas. 

BHA members were able to help with a large public land project and got a sneak peek at the large acreage prior to it going into the WIHA program.

Board member Lynn Peterson lead the effort with help from fellow Kansas BHA leaders Jeff Hancock and Marshal Loftus

Thanks to all the volunteers and KDWP staff for all their hard work.
