    Kansas Trespassing Fee for Private Land

    Like I said, I was fighting for this cause 26 years ago when they told us it would always be that NR tag allotment would never exceed 5%. Now NR are harvesting about 40% of the whitetails in this state. Some of us actually started before 1995 with the special muzzleloader season and the game...

    It is what is. Residents of Kansas who hunt are unhappy, me included. It isn't going to change regardless of who you email or by a facebook page. It will get worse until the resource finally runs out. I will keep hunting and plugging away for now, til I can't stand it anymore. We needed more...

    Best hunting pup for pheasants

    The best dogs come from the best trainers. For some people, breed will never matter because they lack the ability to train correctly. Some people can ruin any dog regardless of breed. And some of us can take a Pug and it will outhunt most dogs in the field. Choose a quality breeder and...

    Obedience Training

    Talk with your trainer first. Most quality trainers will have a 3 month basic gun dog program which will include obedience, ff, and collar conditioning. Along with bird intro, decoys, etc. They are going to want your dog around 6-8 months of age. You are going to be paying for a 3 month...

    Not more resident archery tags but not resident tags. Kansas archers are on the decline, drastically. 15,200 archers hunted in Kansas during the 1984 archery season, only 5570 archery tags sold last year. Then you have the any season tag. It wasn't that long ago that KS residents had a draw...

    Oh I agree, but archery season is only 2 weeks longer than it used to be. But it should be cut back to Oct. 1st. Crossbows should have never been included into the archery season. I get the impression that you and Chestle think it has been extended greatly, which it hasn't. What has changed...

    The bow season has been about the same since 1965, when Kansas had its first deer season. It ran from Oct. 1st til gun season then re-opened after the conclusion of gun season and then closed Dec. 31st. That really hasn't changed. What changed are all the special season that everyone requests...

    There has been a lot of WIHA that has been scalped within the last 2 weeks. Lots of private ground being tilled or scalped just this week. Hunting opportunities are disappearing quickly this fall and winter. I sure hope we have a good enrollment but things are looking very bleak.

    No one is "Pitting" deer hunters against bird hunters. What we are doing is speaking out against "deer management" in Kansas. And not really against the KDWPT but against our Legislature. It is the politicians who have created the deer "cash cow". By the way, Kansas had more deer prior to...

    Actually gun season is pretty long, when you consider we now have crossguns in the bow season. There are also the early youth season for guns, muzzle loader season, then the 2 day antlerless days in Oct where you can use a gun. Then another antlerless gun season in January. You can figure...

    Your kidding right? Deer season runs from the first week in September through mid January opposed to the second weekend of Nov. through January. Bow season see's the largest amount of hunters, especially with the any season tag and crossbows in the archery season now. Deer season is 5 1/2...

    Well misinformation doesn't help anyone. Deer hunting is what is declining access for other types of hunting. Habitat and weather is what effects bird numbers. Not buses of non resident pheasant hunters.
