    Grant County pheasants?

    I have an invite to hunt on some private farms in Grant County, Oklahoma. Im not sure of the exact town there but know its in Grant. Do any of you guys hunt there. How have the Pheasants and quail been in that area? Do you think it would be worth the 15 hr trip in January? Thanks!

    Week after Thanksgiving

    Hunted all last week in NC Kansas. Best quail #'s Ive seen. Most of them were in very thick , woody draws and nearly impossible to hit. Definitely not complaining. Saw plenty enough pheasants to keep us entertained. Found most of them in or near milo. We all got sick , I will blame that for...

    Scaled Quail question

    I would really like to get into some scaled (blue) quail. We go to western kansas every year and its not too much further to CO. Would it be worth our time to drive to co and look for public land scaled quail? If so , where geographically? Thanks!

    Back from KS

    Just got in from a short 2.5 day trip to NC Kansas. Came back with three quail , a rooster and two chickens. A light bag , but I can definitely say we saw a lot more birds than in years past. Pheasants were super spooky , even on private land. We scouted out some prairie chickens one evening...

    Broken promise.......

    After taking two trips this year to Wyoming and North Dakota , I promised the wife that my season was pretty much over except for some woodcock and grouse locally. A few days ago I received a text from my # 1 hunting partner that simply read "Kansas?" I knew what this meant. After presenting my...
