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/ Coyote Hunting in Kansas http://www.travelks.com/blog/post/2012/12/Coyote-Hunting-in-Kansas/1570/ <img src='http://www.travelks.com/includes/content/images/media/6685815019_c0c71a9a9f_z.jpg'/><br/> &nbsp;One of the best things about being a hunter and living in Kansas is I’m never far away from quality hunting and fishing opportunities, even in the dead of winter.

In the time it took for me to drive by, the bird never figured out that with two flaps of its great wings, it could have easily sailed over the fence. You would think that such a bird would be easy prey for a hunter. And you would be wrong.&nbsp;Kansas' fall turkey hunting season is long, and turkeys are abundant across the state. However, because we have so many other great hunting opportunities - deer, waterfow, pheasants, and quail - fall turkey hunting is often overlooked. We have a strong spring turkey hunting tradition, but our fall tradition is underutilized. Thu, 27 Oct 2011 07:00:00 GMT http://www.travelks.com/blog/post/2011/27/Fall-Turkey-Hunting-in-Kansas/1259/
