Although our state is popular for many types of game, our upland bird hunting holds a special place and is a long-held tradition for many hunters. Scott Linden, host of&nbsp;Wingshooting USA, and frequent Kansas hunter, shares with us his thoughts about hunting pheasant in Kansas. 1. What do you enjoy most about hunting in Kansas? The people, the weather, the variety of habitats. I feel “at home” when I visit Kansas, welcomed by almost everyone I meet. Kansas is far enough south that the weather during bird season is usually quite pleasant … not cold, not too hot for the dogs. And despite the cliché, Kansas is not flat as a pancake – I love the rolling hills, river bottoms and woods that make for a unique hunting experience.

Huddled in a brush-covered blind, we impatiently wait for the first birds of the morning, hearing their calls long before we can see them. The birds have been flying consistently, and with greater numbers each day. Even though the temperature is close to freezing this morning, enthusiasm is still running rampant.&nbsp; Tue, 08 Jan 2013 07:00:00 GMT http://www.travelks.com/blog/post/2013/8/Waterfowl-Wonderland/2995/ Kansas Hunters Enjoy Variety http://www.travelks.com/blog/post/2011/31/Kansas-Hunters-Enjoy-Variety/991/ I've never been much of a specialist. My dedication to pastimes has always been seasonal. When I was a boy playing sports, I loved to play football -- until it was basketball season. Then I loved basketball. I'm the same way with hunting and fishing. I love to fish until hunting seasons start. And even then, I have trouble being faithful. I love to hunt ducks until the deer rut starts. Then I love to bowhunt deer until the pheasant and quail seasons open. Deciding what to hunt in Kansas can make you dizzy.
