Feel like Ive been kicked in the nutz. Found out today that I lost permission on my Kansas spot that I've hunted for 31 years. Met Stan 31 turkey seasons ago trying to put out a fire in his hay field, pulled over and helped him out. Got to talking afterward that I was over that way chasing birds and he said he had a ton of them and I was welcome anytime. From that day on his family treated me like family. Through the years I always came out first week of the season and took him and one of his boys out for there first turkeys. In the beginning I always either drove back and forth or grabbed a hotel but by about the 6th year I was staying in one of the houses on another nearby property. When they ended up selling that place they moved me into a travel trailer they had or I just camped in a tent. At least one night while there we'd have a big fish fry or some big dinner around the campfire, good times. During that time they would never take a dime for anything and normally would have a little gift for you when ya got there. A couple three years ago Stan fell and had a brain injury so they turned everything over to the boy to run. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't concerned that season but his boy turned out to be as gractious as his daddy. The cookouts just moved over to his house. Sent his boy a text about 3 days ago about this season and wanted to let him know we were going to bring ribeyes for cookout night. Hadn't heard anything til today when his mom called and left a message that she had taken it over again and put it up for sale. If it wasn't sold by turkey season I could hunt but she was charging me to do it. Just kinda took the wind out of my sails today. I've turkey hunted a lot of different ground over the last 45 years and this was the BEST turkey and mushroom hunting I've ever seen.
