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.

The best part about it for me is that she inspires me to see the same every day, mundane things in a new light. Every day becomes an adventure, a new chance to explore and learn and grow.&nbsp;&quot; Thu, 16 Aug 2012 07:00:00 GMT http://www.travelks.com/blog/post/2012/16/Youth-Hunting-Life-Lessons-Learned-Memories-Made/2544/ Kansas Pheasant Hunting http://www.travelks.com/blog/post/2011/24/Kansas-Pheasant-Hunting/1352/ <img src='http://www.travelks.com/includes/content/images/media/6420631229_0b85bf1694_b.jpg'/><br/>It was just getting light, and we were last in a line of four vehicles slowing down along a sepia-shaded stubble field to our right. Dust lingered in the air, creating red halos around the taillights of the trucks in front of us. I leaned up to look out the window on the passenger side of the truck, wondering what the stubble field held and feeling such incredible excitement, I thought I would burst.

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.
