The article below "Kansas Pheasant Outlook and Wheat" is interesting. At the end of the article in the Third Party Comment section, the guy on the ground gives a positive report on what he is seeing on nesting success.
Thought I was local. We have had larger hail than normal this year and more of it and a much wider swath of it. Much more rain usual and colder spring temps.
That hail a week ago was over 100 miles wide and stretched from Ellis to Wichita. Every county in its path go something from nickel size to 2 inch craters.
