    You drove all that way for just 2 days? I agree I woulda went to where I knew the birds were. But as long as it was a good time I guess that makes up for some.

    Kansas is a tough nut to crack. Thereís as good of pheasant hunting there as anywhere with the exception South Dakota, but thereís also lots and lots of opportunity for frustration and bafflement.

    I think that is where I am at. I walked 11 miles Sat and saw one rooster and 3 hens. I should have had the rooster as he came on a beautiful point. I just missed. My take is Kansas is to big for a dog and a man. I'm used to SD where Jager and I hunt sloughs in picked fields. We pinch the birds. Probably the greatest thing I ever did was train him to come to a beep on his e - collar. Totally unplanned, now I can walk him to one side of a slough give him a stay command, walk o the other side then beep him to come and we pinch the areas together. Kinda made it easy. I can't get over the hunting pressure, and the unethical, gentleman like behavior of the folks. We literally had folks just tag along in the middle of a walk?????WTH never seen anything like this in my life. Just jumped out the truck and helped drive the field we were hunting....didn't ask to join, I guess they didn't need to it's open hunting land....but it was awkward to say the least. I will say you guys have quail!!!!!!!!!!! Enough so that I'll be back.

    There's plenty of opportunity for a guy and his dog. Shelterbelts, low spots choked with kochia, etc. Most of the time I hunt it's just me and the dog, same for a lot of folks here, often with great success. The terrain changes a lot, depending on where you are in the state. So you might have to hunt different areas a little differently. It's certainly not "too big" for one man to hunt though. From what I gather, you were outside the main pheasant range. There's lots of areas that hold very good numbers of pheasants. You can't make a judgment on a state from just one hunt. If I did that, I'd say South Dakota sucks (which I know it doesn't, just had a very tough hunt this year).



    Never had anyone walk so close to me either, that would've ticked me off, too.
