    North Central Kansas Advice

    Have hunted KS a couple of times on opening day of deer season. No issues. We definitely try to avoid them if we see a truck parked where we want to hunt , mostly out of respect and not wanting to mess them up. We have had them stop and ask if they can set on the opposite side of a section while...

    DIY Late Season Hunt

    Stayed in Lacrosse a few years ago. Found plenty of quail. Hunted extreme SW Nebraska this year. Pheasants were few and far between. Smith Center area might be good to base out of. Mixed bag possible there.

    Feral cats

    Yea , So , I got my degree in Wildlife and Fisheries Biology in the early 2000's. We used to get a little extra credit to attend when masters and phd students would present or defend their Thesis and research projects. One of the ones I sat through was done on feral hose cats effects on...

    Ahhh , makes sense. I guess I have seen those now , just didn't realize what I was looking at. Wish they'd go back to that method. Thanks for the lesson!

    It’s not just hunters.

    Events such as this are what get lands closed for all of us. Accidents and mis counts happen , this was intentional disregard. Glad you called!!

    I think Kansas will kill more if the counts weren't just estimates. Based simply on the massive amounts of public lands being available vs Iowa. Its definitely declined in the last 11 years I've been hunting there. I thought in general the habitat in NE looked better. I haven't hunted Iowa since...

    Yea , We have discussed only hunting quail on the KS trips for years , due to insanity we just keep pounding crp looking for Pheasants. I think had we concentrated on quail we would have had a much better trip.
