I havent seen hardly any quail this year. We had a lot of rain and all the fields that i hunt out in western kansas were literally in a couple feet of water. We have seen a few pheasants but no quail. From what the farmer told me, all the nests where flooded and none hatched but he also said that the pheasants had a second hatch but isnt sure about the quail.

Record low. I have seen less quail this year then ever before. Hope you like to walk.

You are gonna have to go alot furter west to find pheasants. (200 miles or more)

Neodesha was under 12 ft or water at one time if that tells you how bad our floods were.

Straight from the website for

Region 5 - Southeast Kansas
Upland bird hunting in Region 5 will be extremely difficult this fall. This region was affected by two different winter events that had negative impacts on gamebird survival. However, the greatest impact to gamebirds was the heavy rain and flooding that occurred in late June and early July. There were areas in Region 5 that received more then 20 inches of rain in less than two days. The flooding occurred at the peak time when quail were hatching and prairie chickens were rearing their young. As a result of low breeding numbers and near reproductive failure, the number of gamebirds available this fall in Region 5 will be at all-time lows.

Pheasant – Most of Region 5 is outside of the pheasant range. There are a few areas in the western and northwestern counties where pheasants persist at very low densities.

Quail – As a result of low breeding numbers and near reproductive failure, the quail population across most of Region 5 will be at an all-time low this fall. Some areas in the far northwestern portion of the region weren’t affected by the winter storms and received much less rain last June. Quail numbers in that area will probably be similar to last fall.

Prairie Chickens – Greater prairie chickens are most abundant in the western and northwestern counties of the region. Spring counts were generally similar to last year in the northernmost counties and somewhat less than last year farther south in the region. Good nesting cover and favorable weather in the northwestern portions of Region 5 should result in similar or slightly more prairie chickens than last year. Prairie chicken numbers farther south in the southern Flint Hills will be much lower than last fall as a result of low spring breeding numbers, poor nesting cover, and heavy rainfall during the brood rearing period.
