    Do misses count? If so, Jefferson county north of Perry Reservoir is the easternmost point in KS that I have seen a pheasant.

    I have a buddy with a family farm outside of Lansing- I've seen a few roosters shot on his place....this was back around '03 or '04.

    Killed a couple on Kaw WMA in Oklahoma once. Had one run across road just across state line in that same area. Well east of I35.

    Benedictine bottoms in Atchison is supposed to be pretty good pheasant hunting. Any one want to give it a go?

    That's surprising. We used to own some ground just east of Madison and we'd see them once in a while on the roads. Over time we learned that a different landowner nearby was releasing them.

    I havenít shot any, but I frequently see them near a pond we snow goose hunt east of Hiawatha.

    We used to kill a lot of rooster's in Jeff Co around Perry in the 90's and I still kill one or two a year around there. In fact was out last Saturday and got slicked by a rooster but we did get into a good Covey on the same farm!

    Hunted Benedictine Bottoms last 2 years. Bagged a couple roosters last year. No roosters seen this year, just quail. Some of the toughest walking we have done. We used to have access to private crp near Atchinson before it went back to corn/beans. It was quite the honey hole for pheasants in the late 90ís-early 2000ís.
