Re: Closing day ... what do you remember most?

Didnt get to hunt as much this year as I normally do, however from Christmas time to the end of our season Jan 31, hit it pretty hard. Found more quail this year than I have in 10 yrs or so. Dont know that quail #'s can rebound across KS as widespread as they used to be due to all the lost CRP and c...

Re: Pig Pointers

Interesting story - glad the dogs made it out ok.

Here in KS if my dog ever points anything other than birds I'm always paranoid it will be a skunk. Was sprayed once in my late teens and still havent forgotten. Luckily the strangest thing pointed this year were mice, 2 armadillos and an opossum.

Re: Good area to hunt pheasant in Kansas?

To be honest if you are planning on spending lots of money on a trip Id bypass this state and go somewhere else. All I did was get exercise for the 2012, and 2013 seasons. I dont expect it to be a heckuva lot better next year. If you're going on the most bang for your buck, more will be had somewher...

Put his collar on when he goes out. After a week of having the e collar on when hes outside, put him out again with it. Sit inside, have the remote, listen - when the tapping starts hit the button, if he does it again turn up the stimulation. If the dog isnt dumb a few times of this would probably c...

Re: Lesser or Greater Prairie Chicken

I cant see enough of it, but from what I can see I believe its a greater. The "bar's" on the feathers look too big to be a lesser.

The range maps posted above are not very accurate at all. The scaled quail map KS posts is probably the biggest joke. They are not just in the corner.

I dont claim to be an expert so I could be wrong but that looks like a greater. The "barring" on the feathers is larger on a greater.


A lesser to me more resembles the "Barring" on a scaled quail and its also a bit smaller.
