History of outdoors and exploration in Kansas

Kansas, The Sunflower State, once the home of nomadic Native American tribes, became synonymous with the spirit of American exploration during the westward expansion in the 19th century. The legendary Oregon and Santa Fe Trails passed through Kansas, carving paths for pioneers and gold rush prospectors. Today, these historic trails are popular hiking routes providing a glimpse into the past. In the early 20th century, Kansas' vast prairies were transformed into fertile farmland. However, amidst this agricultural development, a commitment to conservation emerged. State parks like Kanopolis and Cheney were established in the 1950s to preserve Kansas' unique landscapes. These parks now offer myriad outdoor activities including hiking, fishing, hunting and camping. Kansas is also renowned for its hunting heritage. From abundant white-tailed deer in its hardwood forests to upland game birds like pheasants and quail in its grasslands - Kansas has been a hunter's paradise for centuries. Fishing too is deeply ingrained in Kansas' culture with over 24 species of game fish found in its waters. Kansas is a large agricultural state with $21.4B of ag production, and roughly 98% of the land privately owned by farmers and ranchers. The major crops are cow/calf production, corn, wheat, soybeans and sorghum. When planning hunting trips to Kansas on private lands like farms & ranches, it's important to understand some key dates for farmers and ranchers. Ranchers in this region usually do their calving, brandings and vaccinations anywhere from February through June and will ship cattle in late fall. During these times, they are extremely busy and may be harder to communicate with. Farmers in Kansas will usually begin planting their crops in late April through June and then will harvest their crops in September through November, depending on weather.

Cyclists can take on the challenge of Flint Hills Nature Trail, spanning over 90 miles through rolling hills and dense forests. For those seeking water-based adventures, Kansas River offers excellent fishing, canoeing, and kayaking opportunities.
