Kansas Reports from Hunters
November 16, 2011 - Hunting at Cheney - I have only posted in the fishing section before but I wanted to share this. Went bird hunting around Cheney lake on opening day Saturday. I took my 3 young kids with me to make thing interesting. They had never been hunting before so I was really wanting them to see something. I first took them to a spot on the east side where I have seen quail several times before. We found nothing. Headed to a second spot on the east side where I has also seen quail in the past. Nothing there either other than LOTS of other hunters. I began thinking we wouldn't get anything because there were a lot of people around. I took the kids to a place where they could shoot their BB gun at some old cans and they had a blast! I told them I had one more spot to try where I had seen a couple pheasant last year. We walked and walked and then finally... a pheasant got up right under my feet! I missed the first shot but got it on the second one. It was a really long shot and I was shocked to see it falling to the ground. We were all so happy! What a great way to end a morning of hunting! Hopefully people start posting here more! Thanks!

December 13, 2006 - Pheasant
Reports? - Does anyone have any pheasant reports?
I'm planning a last season trip to the Kiowa county area. Thanks.
1, 2006 - Deer caught on cam - The
picture of the deer below I did get a shot at and hit it real
high. We looked for hours but never found the deer or a blood
trail. The arrow only had hair and small bits of meat on it.
I'm sure the deer lived and is not suffering! Me on the other
hand is suffering tremendously! I can't sleep at night thinking
about what I should have done differently. I guess those things
will happen to all hunters. Anyway here is another buck that
showed up the other morning and has been hanging around. My son
has a rifle permit, so he may get a shot at it, if not I'll be
back in a tree after rifle season with my bow. If we get one
well post it. Love to see others post their deer harvest, and
4, 2006 - Deer caught on cam - Here
is a good deer I caught on my cam last week. Hope to put him
on the wall. Just looking at the picture makes me shake a bit.
September 8, 2006 - Answer
to question about Pond Fishing Dove Reference - We
hunted in a Barton County sunflower field. Friday the 1st was
great, but a cold front that came in Friday night must have moved
them out and shut the fishing off as well.
September 7, 2006 - Question
about Pond Fishing Dove Reference - I realize this
should probably go on the hunting reports, but I was curious
what part of the state Denny G. was hunting in. I've heard nothing
but poor reports so far for southcentral Ks.
September 6, 2006 - Pond
Fishing after Dove Hunting - 9-1-06 - After an exceptional
day of dove hunting, we wound up the day by some catfishing.
Frogs usually are the ticket on this pond but they just couldn't
resist the Sonny's dip bait.Caught 2 in just 10 minutes! Something
they hadn't had before I suspect. This was my son's favorite
part of the trip!
2, 2006 - Leqavenworth - On the last day of the bow
season I had my stand set in an area where I had seen lots
of deer activity earlier during the rut. I hunted hard
the whole bow season and passed on some smaller bucks and had
even missed a smaller eight pointer from the same
stand. With an hour left in the season the biggest buck
I've seen this year walks out and the rest is history.
It pays to "stick" with it. The deer was
harvested at Fort Leavenworth, KS.
November 4, 2005 - Wichita
Area - Went pheasant/quail hunting on SUN south of
Wichita. Saw lots of pheasants and five very large coveys of
quail. Dogs had trouble smelling them due to the dry conditions
but three of us managed to shoot two pheasants and fourteen quail.
Lots of birds this year. Good luck.
12 & 13, 2005 - Ellinwood - Saturday was VERY
windy! The birds didn't want to fly. I'm sure we walked over
Sunday was a beautiful day, but the birds were really running
in the milo. This was my son Paul's first experience with pheasants
and he had a ball! The funniest thing was this little 8 yr. old
running down a downed bird in a wheat field that popped back
up when he ran up to get him. He zigged and zagged it was hilarious
but Paul finally got him. Needless to say he was the hero. He
will remember that for a lifetime. Be sure to take your kids
hunting and fishing!
4, 2005 - Andover Area - I couldn't pass on this buck.
I shot it Friday morning at 7am. Not as big as last year but
I'm not complaining!
December 18, 2004 - I'm
planning a late season pheasant hunt to Rush county with my dad
and brother, can anyone give me a report? Thanks and safe hunting!

anyone know if pheasant hunting around Marion Reservoir on public
hunting is productive, I would like to take my 2 boys this weekend,havent

November 11, 2004 - Butler County Buck - This
is the buck I shot on 11/6/04 in butler county. He's not a monster
but, he's a nice deer and the biggest one I have ever shot. He's
13pts and had 4
broken points or he would of been 17pts. Shot him at about 20
yards as he chased a doe by me. The long tine in the back is
16 1/4 inches long!
November 4, 2004 - Ducks
in Durham AreaWent duck hunting on a pund around the
Durham area. There was three of us hunting. We ended up with
11 ducks. We shot 2 Mallards, 1 Greenwing teal, ! shovler. 4
Gadwalls, 3 RingNecks. The hunting was great. Todd Becker
October 28, 2004 - Andover Area - I
shot this Buck following a hot doe last night at 6:15. It's my
biggest buck with a bow so far,18 points and 270lbs not field
dressed. The one I have on the trail cam below will have to wait
till next year. It will take that long for my heart to start
beating correctly again! There is nothing like bow hunting in
2004 - Durham Area - Look at the buck I got on my
trail cam, if I get lucky I'll be clearing a spot on the wall
for him! The rut is just around the corner, and I can't sleep
at night thinking about it!
April 11, 2004 - Durham Area - I
guided on a 12 year old on a Youth turkey hunt. We say alot of
nice Toms. But we ended up not getting a bird. It is still early,
but it should get really good.

January 14, 2004 - Burton Area Jan.
10 - Myself and 5 others went hunting early Saturday
morning, we all talked about it being late in the year and it
may be tough getting close to the birds. It wasn't! By noon we
had bagged 17 pheasants and 1 quail. We must have seen 150-200
birds! What a hunt. Snag
January 5, 2004 - North
of Durham - I went out yesterday afternoon, hunting
north of Durham, we shot 4 roosters bewteen the 4 of us. Some
of the birds where holding pretty tight and some where running.
Right now the hunting for the roosters should be good, because
it is getting cold and the birds should be holding tight.

County -I will be hunting in Reno and surrounding
counties for pheasant and quail on the week of 12-8 through 12-12.
Can anyone let me know if the conditions are favorable for the
birds and if there are any there? Thanks
November 19, 2003 - Reply to Rush and
Pawnee Counties - Thanks for the reply about Rush
and Pawnee Counties. Our trip is this weekend, we're leaving
Friday night. It looks like the weather will be interesting,
earlier in the week they were calling for temps in the low 70's,
that's not good! This morning they were saying 60 with rain,
hopefully it will turn out a little more favorable for hunting.
I went quail hunting here in Greenwood County on Sunday and found
one good covey and another small one. I was by myself and managed
to get 5 birds. They were really holding well for it being so

November 17, 2003 - Gray
County - Went pheasant hunting with about 13 others
on 11-15-03 and hunted from about 9:00 until about 1:00. We ended
up with 35 pheasants. The birds were holding really well considering
the warm weather and light breeze. Also noticed several trees
that had been scraped by deer. Looks like the rut is really getting
November 14, 2003 - Rut
in Reno County - in the last seven days i have just
started seeing rubs scrapes and some chasing aoundr pretty prairie,
i think its just starting out here i have heard of lots of cahsing
up north but i think well have yet to peak - rick
November 13, 2003 - Greenwood
County - I went to the public hunting areas in Greenwood
County. I only found two coveys of birds on opening day, but
all the places I hunted had been walked already except for the
two where I found birds. There was about 20 birds in each covey.
My brother, father and I went back again on Tuesday and found
three coveys this time. It was 65+ degrees out and was very hard
for the dogs to smell anything. We ended up with 28 quail after
two days and about 20 miles of walking. We have a pheasant trip
planned in a few weeks, can anyone give a pheasant report on
Rush and Pawnee Counties? Thanks and be safe! SAH
