    This has been my experience. Hunted western Kansas this weekend and flushed a couple hundred pheasants, usually in bunches of 10-20 in grass or uncut crops, though we did kick a few running singles...

    Pleasantly surprised by the pheasants in the area I hunted, which is not a pheasant hot spot (anymore). Saw a lot of chickens. Quail were hard to get on, especially as the day got hotter.

    I’ll be in SW. I have pretty low expectations, as the entire pheasant belt is down, and Kansas opener is always the worst hunt I have there all season. Down is the new normal for pheasants, and I...

    I can’t believe Kansas will be much better. Pheasants are way down in every state in the pheasant belt so far. Kansas is the last domino to fall.

    Filson, Q5, Mule, Cabela’s, Avery, and Orvis that I know of. I only wear blaze orange when the law requires it, when I’m hunting in a party, or during deer season.

    Kansas opener is always the worst. Yet I long for it for months in advance.

    CSA hunts are not counted in the Kansas harvest numbers. And there are very few outfitters in Kansas to “supplement”, openly or not, their operations with released birds.

    Not sure, you guys might be talking at cross purposes. Kansas doesn’t include preserve birds in their “harvest” numbers, I have always been under the impression that SD does. And I think beyond the...
