    It’s naive at best to think you could discuss upland hunting in the midwest without discussing ag policy. Some people seem to think the agricultural industry is above reproach, but don’t seem to have...

    I don’t buy for a second that it takes cedars to have pheasants, and the science backs me up. That said, if it did, I’d choose good prairie over pheasant populations any day. One of the 2 belongs...

    I’ve killed plenty of pheasants in cedar shelterbelts, but science is not a measure of what I’ve done or seen. If you hunt pheasants every day for every season for 50 years you still have a pretty...

    There was an article in the spring PF magazine that lead me to believe that new research shows otherwise about treed wind breaks, for pheasants at least. Perhaps I misread or misunderstood it, but it...

    Your friends Premier probably had a light contour barrel and the Sportsman did not. Otherwise they are the same gun, with different finishes.

    33 pheasants and 15 quail. A couple 100+ days. Mostly days of 10-15 birds. I’m on a good luck streak and I haven’t missed much this year. I definitely have seen fewer roadside pheasants or pheasants...

    For me it's about the birds. I'm not embarrassed to say it. I love chasing, killing, butchering and eating animals, especially birds. It's better with dogs, it gets me outside, moving and being...

    This was my primary reason for switching from a pump to an O/U. I don't care for semi-autos and wouldn't take one into the uplands, in part because of the spent hull problem. I do sometimes still...

    Didn’t realize it was zero sum. I know when I hunt MN, you have to pay a $3 fee to access their walk in program, but it’s funding formula may be slightly different. I knew WIHA was funded largely or...

    Perhaps Kansas should require a WIHA online check in thru isportsman and restrict the amount of hunters per day based on the size of the WIHA?

    I would happily pay for a WIHA access pass.

    I haven’t been up to Osborne this year. But I regularly see and shoot rabbits while bird hunting. Sometime more regularly that I see birds. Certainly more uniformly spread throughout the state.
