    So you have to do your homework and establish yourself and build a little creedo before you go on a site like this and ask for places to hunt or this and that.

    I dont know if you'll see this post, but out of curiosity since I have never hunted SD, was this charging for money thing for birds normal?

    In KS Ive noticed the few that Ive seen will charge will have a sign indicating so, but most leased lands here (KS) IMO are leased for deer.

    What types of fees were they charging? That would probably turn me off from ever going back.

    I don't remember exactly how much the fees where, however when I went up to the door and asked they said either, "already have guys on it or $$".....I mean how much ground could myself, my then 13yr old son and two dogs cover

    Next year my best friend and I are heading to SD on one of those all expense paid pheasant hunt deals.....

    Until then, this year we will be coming out to hunt KS near Dodge City and take our chances....I enjoy getting my dogs out, eating at the Bad Habit in Dodge, getting away from work and my chores and spending time with my son without girls, Xbox, etc

    If you are looking for Quail try the southeast section of the state. If you are looking for Pheasant try the north central section. According to the KDWPT Report those should be the general areas.

    Here is a link to the bird counts this year. http://kdwpt.state.ks.us/news/Huntin...-NOW-AVAILABLE

    Hope this helps...

    PS guys I think this is the kind of info he was looking for

    I'm an out of stater who's been hunting in the Midwest since 93. I don't think the people on this forum are being dicks or intend to be rude when they tell out of staters to scout. It's no different from a grouse hunter being protective of they're honey hole. Most of the people that live in Ks hunt in very specific areas, usually a family members or friends farm and occasionally WHIA. It's a cultural difference between in state and out of state hunters. In state hunters, hunt the weekend most don't hunt across the state and most don't go out of state to hunt and so don't understand when we aren't able to scout an area the same way they are. We don't have the family or friend connections they have. Also we don't always have good manners when hunting. I remember one year in the northwest pulling into a field and seeing 37 rooster heads on the side of the road (blockers and drivers). We hunted in and around the area for a day and didn't point a single bird. We packed up and drove to the southwest and shot out limits the next 3 days. Go as often as you can, keep records of where you hunt, both the good and the bad. Eat in local restaurants, talk to everybody make friends and have fun. Hope you all have good hunting and hope to see one or two of you opening weekend. PS I'm not telling my honey holes either.

    Excellent post and point

    You pretty much summed it up and hit the nail on the head. The out of staters who have a beef with guys not giving out tips, advice, etc in regards to hunting need to try and have some empathy. Most of the local guys and other out of staters, have done their homework and have been hunting in areas for years. I didn't get all butt hurt over folks near Platte, SD where my now 14yr old and son where hunting last year. We had the good fortune of hunting on a guys land, not much, but better than nothing and due to the drought, things were not great. We went anyway, shot one bird (in SD none the less)....my son was like dad lets go knock on some doors. So we did and everyone wanted $$$ and after driving 9hrs, hotel, license and everything else, I didn't have the $$$ to shell out. So we left a day early. None the less, we had a good time, got to meet some good people and see a state and area that we had never been.

    Hunting nowadays is networking, kind of like when you are looking for job. It isn't what you know, it is who you know Almost nepatism in a sense.

    It takes a while to get into the so-called "circle" (taken from Meet the Parents)....
