This coming weekend Im going after Pheasants out in Northwest Kansas, Its a traditional get together that started 51 years ago, last year there were 32 of us. Now that might seem like a lot of hunters, but if you saw the size of the fields we hunt you might think we need more LOL. We hunt private ground mostly and some walk in. Im not expecting much in the way of birds this year, however I do believe it will be better than last year. In one sense we are lucky ,one of the hunters we have is a local rural mailman, so we have a edge on knowing where the birds are. Also on the agenda is a giant dinner on Saturday night, so even if we don't get many birds we will eat very well ' Good luck to all you guys and safe hunting to you'
BTW a lot of people think theres no where to hunt but I beg to differ, theres all kind of walkin areas to hunt that never get touched by hunters, a person just has to do some early fall scouting, willing to drive a ways, spend the money for a hotel and food, AND get away from the known pheasant hot spots near the bigger cites like Dodge City, Hays, etc. I personally know of an farmer that leases several acres of good pheasant ground to the state for walk in and he tells me its hunted maybe once a year if at all.
If you're there for the limit, you're there for the wrong reason
