    “Good” in comparison to other parts of the state, further NW, no. But you may be able to run into a few birds in that area.

    Definitely head west, as you’re on the far eastern side of the state, where bird numbers are lower. Anywhere west of I-35 and north of I-80 should produce birds.

    The pheasants use the corn to escape the grass and feed. And since most don’t hunt standing corn, that means one’s access to pheasants near standing corn is usually quite limited.
