I have been planning on leaving out Sunday morning for SW Kansas and hunting 3-4 days. With the snow and rain coming I am thinking of canceling or at least waiting until about Tuesday before heading up. I am not really concerned with the hiways but the dirt county roads because I will be driving a 2 WD suburban. I plan on hunting the walk in stuff and knocking on a few doors. Anyone have any thoughts on what the roads may be like or suggestions. Forecast calling for 4-8 inches of snow Sunday and Monday then single digits to 25-30 for a few days.
Loc: Tx Hill Country
Used to hunt around Scott City every year. If it's just rain and above freezing, the dirt roads are pretty tough for a two wheeled drive. The mud it pretty slippery. Spent the better part of a day one year sliding off the road in the 2wd and pulling it out with the 4wd we had with us. That night it snowed and the ground froze and we had no problem getting around in the 2wd.
I was in SW Kansas all week. A lot of the county roads around dodge city, jetmore ect. are horrible. I ended up in the ditch a few times but luckily never got completely stuck. If you have 2wd you can forget about getting to a lot of the walk in areas. Especially after the rain and snow that's hitting now.
Sat here all day today thinking about it. Pouring rain and watching the damage from last night on tv. I think I would be better off just to stay home and duck hunt. My dog really doesn't care what kind of birds anyway. Oh well maybe next year. Thanks for the input and advice.
