Thread: First time in SW kansas

  1. #1

    Default First time in SW kansas

    Due to time constraints and a new lease in the panhandle of Texas so we are foregoing our normal long trip to NW/NC Kansas.

    Got an airbnb around Ulysses and gonna get it a shot for quail/pheasant on the opening weekend.

    Any general tips/info for this area?

    Thanks in advance!

    We arenít looking for specifics, I know how that works. This will be our 4th or 5th year. Just general idea

    I'll be out there that weekend. Just don't have much to offer. Haven't been that way myself for opening weekend in a few years. Good luck though you should find birds.

    Probably been 3 decades or a bit more since I hunted South of there around Hugoton. Good bird population back then but oh, man....the sandburs!

    It was REALLY tough on the dogs unless you had good dog boots.

    Had to watch picking up the pheasants too. They had the burs all over them. Had to wear some good leather gloves too.

    Good luck! Hope they got all those sandburs under control by now.

    that part of Kansas always has sand burrs.....many guys don't spray for them at all.

    I havenít hunted Grant co for several years but in the past I always had good luck. I do know there is a very active pheasants forever chapter in Ulysses and theyíve done a lot of habitat projects and food plots. I wouldnít worry about sand burrs Iíve only encountered them on a very few occasions and when I do I just move on to another field. On a positive note I am hearing favorable reports from neighboring counties. The only downside is that harvest is running behind so there will probably be some corn and milo still in the fields. Thatís my .02 Iíll be out with my crew in Seward Co for the opener Good Luck

    Harvest is right on schedule. Always takes place after the wheat is drilled.
