    Snow hunting

    Went out Southwest on Saturday in the snow. Did better than opening day in the same area, as the birds were concentrated and holding tight in thick cover.

    Birds 90% down in SW/SC where we hunt mostly private. A couple spots w ok numbers. In what seems to be a direct correlation, 90-95% of all crp has been hayed or grazed down to nothing. Farmer also told me that he can sell crp that he bales right now- Sweet deal.

    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...

    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?

    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.
