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.

Some seasons offer boisterous camaraderie with other outdoorsmen, while other hunts require patience and a complete disconnect with the rest of the world. Regardless of the season or the experiences that come from it, most hunters simply revel in the opportunity to be outdoors. The best hunting trips have a way of getting into the blood and creating a stream of never-ending enthusiasm, so it's no big surprise that most hunters live for their favorite seasons.&nbsp; Tue, 19 Feb 2013 07:00:00 GMT http://www.travelks.com/blog/post/2013/19/Controlled-Shooting-Areas---Making-the-Most-of-Upland-Bird-Hunting-in-Kansas-/3007/
