Havent really even thought about it as hunting partner is deployed to afgahn. Will probably wait until Sept or Oct when it cools off so can get Britt out and work him. Let me know if you need an extra shooter.

I'll be in the SE part of the state over Thanksgiving. I'll have my year old GSP with me. I'd love to hook up and hunt some chickens. I'd be willing to head west a bit if it'd be more convenient.

Hunted some spots I normally find birds and haven't seen anything yet this year. I will find them eventually, heading back out in the morning, shoot me a PM if you want to go sometime.

Flint Hills (not the refuge) or Smoky Hills. That time of year you generally don't hunt them over dogs, you sit at a field they are coming to and pass shoot them. As low as the numbers are anymore I am surprised they even still have a season on them. I've shot at some once. My brother shot 1. Going to get one and have it mounted one day. I bet they are gone in my lifetime.

Thats good to hear, with todays farming and ranching it is amazing. Numbers seem to be doing well in the western part of KS, and parts of north central. Unfortunately I live in the NE part of the state and they aren't doing as well at my spots.

The numbers in W Kansas are pretty good. When we went pheasant hunting some days we saw more chickens than pheasants in some fields.
