    Default How are the roads at cimarron grass lands ??

    Trying to find some passable roads after the rain and snow. Phillipsburg roads are nasty as is most of the state right now.

    Are the roads in the grasslands mostly sandy? Or are they like the minimum maintenance roads here?

    May have to bust some snowdrifts to get in. I think that area got hit with measurable snow and driftin. Should have four wheel drive high clearance and aggressive tires to get in. Once you do the quail hunting should be epic

    As a general rule, the roads will be OK. The Grasslands are sandy. You'll need to be careful if taking any two-tracks.

    Seeing more pressure this year. I think this is due to folks having trouble finding birds in most of the state and trying to go to places they haven't hunted in the past in hopes of getting into some birds. I'm actually headed to your part of the state today. Not expecting to find anything, but that's what a buddy wanted to do.

    Roads are greasy here when the sun hits them. We waited a little too long before we had a 4 mile drive out. That’s why I’m switching areas this afternoon. Was thinking far SW would have better roads due to being sandy.

    You're okay here til noon. Once it thaws a little they are terrible. 6 inches of frozen water on top a lot of them. We had over 2 inches of rain before the snow hit. Been a wet winter.

    No I just saw some guys in a dodge hunting south and east of Bazine. I never hunt in a group, just me and my dogs.
