    Moved for better Hunting & Fishing

    Pheasant license plate

    Looking at getting a new pheasant license plate for the front of the truck. I had a sweet looking, old school, Quail unlimited one until someone helped themselves to it. Been looking on-line and haven't really found one that catches my eye. Share 'em if you got 'em! Thanks

    Little ones!

    Not much action on the Kansas board, figured I'd post a neat story. My family owns some ground in SE Kansas (an area with no wild pheasants) and 3 years ago we released some pheasants. If I remember right it was around 7 or 8 roosters and maybe 5 hens. Seen a couple of the roosters around for...

    Tough hunting

    My buddies and I tried the NW part of the state this past weekend. Haven't hunted up there for 7 or 8 years but it's been such a struggle this year we decided to head back out there and give it a go. Man, tough hunting is an understatement! Maybe seen 10-12 pheasants in two days with 4 guys...

    How's the season so far?

    Just checking in to see how everyone's season is going? Don't need locations or even parts of the state. For me and the couple guys I hunt with it's been a struggle to put birds in the truck. We've hunted 5 days now and it's been the worst year I can remember. Usually we don't have many...

    Youth Season

    Took my 12 year old son and his best friend hunting yesterday. The first field was a long walk for the boys with only one hen being seen. About 50 yards from being back to the truck I was in the middle of thinking "well this hasn't gone as planned" when his friend stepped on a rooster!!! He...

    Issue with dog's nose

    For the 3rd year in a row my 9 year old GSP has gotten something lodged in his nose. Happened Wednesday when we were hunting and he sneezed and sneezed trying to get it out. I thought he got it and then today he started sneezing again and I'm pretty sure it's still in there. The last two...

    Youth Shotgun Question

    Hey guys, My 9 year old son asked Santa for a shotgun for Christmas, which made Daddy very happy! Anyways, looking for suggestions as I've never bought a youth model before. He's not the biggest 9 year old and he's pretty soft. Do I go with a 20 gauge or a 410? Single shot, pump or semi...

    Help with jumping puppy

    Hey guys, I have a 8 month old shorthair I need some help with. My first two dogs I never really had an issue with them jumping up on people, but this pup is driving me nuts with it. He's gotten better with me (still slips up when he's really excited) but with my kids it's every time they are...

    20 gauge steel shot

    I've been shooting a 12 gauge O/U for the last 15 years, made the decision to switch to a 20 this year. Love the gun and have been knocking them dead with Federal Premium Copper plated 5 shot. However, I have yet to find a steel shell worth a darn for the 20 gauge. So, you 20 gauge guys have...
