    Default worst ever........

    just got back from 4 days north and south of Russell, it was not good.
    the pheasants are very, very spotty, we walked some great cover near cut milo and corn and never cut a track or scent.....no hens at all, not a good sign, the evidence of rain was seen in a great looking winter wheat crop, but the birds are just not there.......yesterday we didn't see a bird or pop a cap, no roosting sign or crap either, in some places there is just no evidence of bird life....that just doesn't happen.....saw a few quail the day before, had 3 dogs on the ground most of the time....last year was better, thought we were going to improve this season, but from my sample that is simply not the case.
    good luck, i am sure there are some spots left where there are a few.

    Hunted SW on private ground. It was better than we did in central KS on opening weekend. My small group of 4 joined a couple other groups and it became an opening weekend sized-group. We found few birds in weedy wheat stubble and a decent number in grass. But, the big group was struggling to be organized and I noticed a kid carrying his autoloader off safe. I obviously corrected him, but after that we went our own way.

    Nothing different than the pattern we've been hunting for several years. Find decent CRP with grain nearby and you'll find birds.

    Hunted private ground Sat and Sun. Sat in NE KS found 3 coveys. Heard some phez but I was too tired to go chase them as it was after walking about 10 miles.

    Sunday hunted NC KS. Farmer said he'd been seeing a couple roosters running back n forth between the CRP and his milo crop. Dog got scent and I believe was tracking, she locked on point but bird moved. Never put it in the air. Found 3 coveys, heard a 4th calling but was not able to find them. Milo was cut waist tall. Some of the thickest tallest milo I've ever seen.

    If you guys wouldn't mind , somebody write a good story about how awesome it is and how the public land hunting has been unreal. I need some excitement. Headed out that way the week after thanksgiving. Even if its a lie , I will appreciate it!!

    Bring a good dog, hunt in an area that has had timely rainfall or center pivots with corners. Ample water through late summer is a key factor. I have friends in Offerle who were seeing 100 bird flushes on WIHA next to cut milo

    Thanks , We have been hunting up around Lucas for years. We are going a little earlier than the last few years. I have experienced the near impossible scenting conditions in dry years out there.

    The Lucas area gets hit really hard. I have hunted that area since 1988 and it has some real nice cover and nice farmers that will let you hunt on their land. Too bad Linda's closed as Gene served the coldest beer in Kansas.
