Their Governor out-hunted ours, Missouri lakes closed to boats

Like most Kansans I don’t like losing to Missouri, especially when it comes to something in the outdoors.

But, gulp, their governor certainly out-hunted our governor when it came to turkeys this spring. According to Brent Frazee,  outdoors writer at the Kansas City Star, Gov. Jay Nixon shot a 24-pound tom when the Missouri season opened April 18.

Our Gov. Sam Brownback only got soaked and cold on his aqua-hunt on the Governor’s Turkey Hunt on April 15.

While you’re at it read the story about the woman who left a ten-pound channel cat tied up and later found it in the throat of a huge flathead.

I guess I need to start using bigger bait!
