As many as 500 waterfowl hunters from across the U.S. will flock to Cheyenne Bottoms for the opening weekend of duck season, which begins Oct. 10 in the Low Plains Early Duck Zone. Knowing all too well how important a good breakfast can be, staff at the Kansas Wetlands Education Center (KWEC) invite each and every one of those hunters to their 3rd Annual Hunter Appreciation Breakfast. Visiting hunters will enjoy a hot plate of biscuits and gravy, as well as coffee and juice. And the best part? It’s all free. Hungry hunters can stop by KWEC, located at the southeast corner of Cheyenne Bottoms along K-156 Highway, from 8 a.m. – 11 a.m. and refuel after their morning hunts.
Following breakfast, hunters can explore Cheyenne Bottoms’ history at the education center, peruse through items in the Cheyenne Bottoms Ducks Unlimited Chapter raffle and silent auction, and brush up on their waterfowl identification, among other activities.
Hunters can also get a complimentary waterfowl boat inspection done, courtesy of Kansas Wildlife, Parks and Tourism Boater Education staff.
