.......or we are headed to Hutchinson KS.
A guide? In Hutchinson? Seriously? You were given the key to the kingdom, all the effort I've seen you put into killing geese, I don't know why and the world you didn't follow up with at least a phone call. Getting hooked up in that clique is darn near impossible if you're not in the biz.
The fella that we met in the cafe, the one that owns the insurance agency specializing in crop insurance, he gave us all one of his business cards and an invitation.
100+ texts by 3am, GPS coords on a pinned gmap. And an agricultural pest waiver.
Ag insurance adjusters/reps/salesmen in KS know a heck of a lot more about where the birds are than anyone I've ever met. They're throwing a lot of money and technology to minimize paying claims. n invite from the owner of an insurance company that underwrites 70% of the crop insurance policies in the state is gonna change you're perspective of hunting up there. Hunting, lodging and meals were free and $100 a day on a prepaid AMEX to cover our gas.
Every time we've gone Gene has fixed us up with some interesting and generous perks on their nickel. Getting detailed reports of birds via text every four hours from some type of operations center, it still trips me out when I think about it.
