I'm thinking about looking into a trip for upland birds. I am thinking something within a good day's drive from the Houston area. I've always wanted to hunt Kansas in the snow, don't ask me why but I just think it would be cool. Just looking for thoughts and experiences that you might have had.

Thanks.

I have a very good population of quail On my lease in Menard and hunt them after deer season is over. Looking for a combo hunt of Quail, chucker and pheasant. If you know of a place that can give me all or two of the three let me know who.

I'm a bird dogger more than a hunter, and nothing beats wild bobwhite quail for me.

I have done a few road trips to different places for different kinds of upland hunting. There are a couple public areas with wild chukar in western CO within your range, but it would be very difficult iffy finding them hunting. Utah is the closet chukar state, but would be more of a 16-20 hour drive at the least for you. Kansas Pheasant with bonus quail and prairie chicken would be your best bet within your set driving range.

You are correct sir, but I have never hunted pheasants before and really would like too.

Ok, if I stay in Texas to hunt where can I go to get a great hunt. When I say great hunt I'm talking EXPERIENCE. I love watching good dogs work, hunting with other people that have the same passion as I do.

Since I haven't been yet, S Dakota. I'd like to see the pheasants black the sky, like I've heard about. Along with the chance for grouse and partridge and combine a waterfowl trip in with it. Then, I'd like to hunt the 6666's, Pitchfork, Tongue River and Swensons.

I hunted North Dakota but a friend and I flew up there from Houston and met a group who drove up from Kansas. It was a good trip. We found lots of sharpies and a few Huns. The Huns were a lot of fun but hard to find.

I live in north Texas and plan on driving to Montana this year, and on the way back hit the panhandle WMA's. Also have a S.Dakota pheasant hunt planned for this fall. It's going to be a lot of driving and bird dogging this season!

Houston to SD is under 16 hours drive. That would be doable. If you want to shoot any bonus greenhead chickens while your there, it's a draw for non residents and time to apply right now.
