    A Tradition

    Went out southwest with 4 guys and 2 kids today- killed 4 pheasant and 15 quail. The roads were dicey this afternoon, but was never really worried about getting stuck. Was sure hard to locate the pheasant in the afternoon- had that trouble both times we went out this year. Would sure be great if...

    Kansas Trespassing Fee for Private Land

    Planning on zoom. Would you consider starting a new thread with a link for the meeting and a few key talking points? I think some guys are probably skipping over this thread now with 200 some replies.

    Tough hunting

    went out Saturday in SW on private ground with no dogs. 9 guns, stopped hunting around 4. Found 20 quail and 7 roosters, and regrettably lost more. Tons of coveys, including the biggest covey I’ve ever seen (over 50 if there was one). Saw some crp that had been mowed down- we need to be talking...

    Ammunition

    What are your recommendations for the best place to get ammo online or in store? I have a hard time finding Remington Nitro, which I seem to have the most success with.

    Numbers so far...

    Haven't got a great feel for how everybody did from the opener until now, but the general feeling I'm getting is that numbers are the same or down from last year, just as the forecast predicted. We hunted southwest on opening day and had our worst day since probably 2013- but I attribute some of...

    Less than a month

    Is anybody getting excited, or has the year of tough weather put a damper on things? No matter what the numbers, it is a blast to get out with friends and family! I'm planning on heading out close to dodge, what are your plans?

    Hail

    Hey guys- this has been an awful year for hail, and last night my hunting grounds got pounded with "racquetball" sized hail. What are the odds of mature birds surviving that? I'm never out in the fields after these events, so I just don't know.

    Hawks

    This might be kind of touchy with the recent post on falconry, but I want to get you guys' honest opinion on 2 things: How much do you think hawks affect the pheasant and quail pop? Do you feel like there should be a short hawk season to help curb the surplus population? I will tell you that I...

    WIHA confusion

    I spent opening day southwest, and was confused to find that past years WIHA was still posted as WIHA, yet wasn't in the book or online. This was the case at multiple locations. Am I to assume that this many farmers are taking their crp out of WIHA, yet leaving it posted?

    last hunt...

    7 family/friends and I went out for our 2nd and last western kansas hunt of the season. Mix of CRP and milo/shelterbelts and didn't shoot too well. Got 3 kids out to hunt which was memorable (none with shotguns yet). Found 11 roosters and 3 quail on saturday, and should have had about 20/10...
