This fall I've put it on my goals to try and be more proactive in getting outdoors and enjoying some Hunting, Fishing, and camping. As such, I've put together my top 5 places to go for the rest of the year.
1) Waterfowl Hunting
I've never been Duck or Goose Hunting, and heard it's a hell of a time. There are a surprising amount of places to do so in the greater Kansas City area, whether it's the Mudhole Creek or Hooray Ranch.
In trying to build a business, I haven't had much of a chance to just sit back, relax, have a whiskey and s'mores by a campfire. With all that's gone on in 2020 it's just taken a toll and I think is about time to get back outside and enjoy the outdoors. I'm hoping to go camping at Clinton Lake. At Clinton Lake, there's something serene about being along side the lake but also near a town that's near and dear to my heart, Lawrence, KS where I went to college.
3) Fly Fishing (Arkansas)
I'm trying to carve out some time to go down to Dally's Ozark Fishers in Northern Arkansas to catch some Rainbows and Brown Trouts. I've always really enjoyed fishing, but am somewhat of a novice when it comes to Fly Fishing. It's something I did as a kid with my dad a few times on vacation and thoroughly enjoyed it, but haven't had much opportunity to do it much since.
4) Fly Fishing (Texas)
Over Thanksgiving my family and I are heading down to the San Antonio area to visit my parents and sister. While I'm down there, I'm hoping to get away for a day with my dad to get some father/son time along with a new experience of fly fishing along the Guadalupe River, which apparently has great fly fishing only about 30 min from my parents' house, but I only knew it for tubing in the summers.
5) Upland Hunting
In partnering with Bob on Big Sky, I've begun to learn more and more about Pheasant and upland hunting. It seems like an absolute must as a midwesterner. I'm hoping to get up to Pheasant Bonanza or the Woodshed Ranch to visit our friends and affiliates for a nice fall morning hunt.
