I thought it'll be cool to post this experience since we are doing lots of driving.

We got to Liberal KS around 2 today. Got our licenses and hit the road. We only hit two areas cause we've been not liking what we see and moving on. We pointed one hen and kicked a few up before our dogs locked up. We saw two roosters but they got up early. Finding the birds on the back fence lines of the properties. We are near Colby now and are getting a room for the night. So far it seems Kansas has been rode hard and put up wet.
Tomorrow is a new day and we learned not to plot out the areas to hit this late in the season cause it's better go to see all of them. First day was tough but honestly we didn't hunt enough. Tomorrow amongthe new strategies is hunt a few bigger tracts. It's super dry and discouraging went the dogs push birds but maybe I'm to used to quail hunting. By the way we didn't get into any quail..we thought that was weird.

Looks like we are out of light but tomorrow I'll snap some good pictures.

Kansas sunset isn't a north Tx sunset but still nice

We drove around last night and found a nice section way off the beaten path. We saw a few pheasent right off the road at last light.
We got in at first light and we're about to go out but realized the wind was switching so we had to reapproach. So we drove around and couldn't really approach from the right side so we leashed the dogs and walked a mile in at least. On the back side we worked into the wind. The cover was nasty. Super super high. You couldnt see the dogs but you'd see the grass tops shaking. We got a few points on pheasent which only let us know get ready cause another 50yards they would erupt. We hit this spot where nothing grew and noticed the birds were running in front of us. They got pinned between the bald area and us and pheasent starting getting up. I rolled a double. Tony my brother hit one but it kept going.

We only found one which was sad but this cover is super dense. It's easy to lose em here.
We hit a few other spots close by and found one other rooster. We are looking for more cover like that one unit but not finding it. We have a new strategy we can't wait to try.

We think there are more birds so we are going to separate and try to run them into cover and then push the cover into the open ground.
The cover was so dense. Look at Cocos muzzle.

Tomorrow the weather gets here. Smart people would probably head back to Texas early but hard headed bird hunters like me will be super excited to hunt the snow and if I'm right, and there are more birds in those units but they are to smart to hunt. Maybe they'll sit tight and wait for us like Texas quail do.

Bird hunters are a tenacious breed. I am going to make the 1,000 mile trip from LaGrange, Georgia to Snyder, Texas next weekend. I plan on hunting for a week.

I hunted Kent County the last week in November. It was very dry and birds were hard to come by. But, I did get into birds on a new place the last day of a week-long hunt.

You trip sounds like something I would do. Drive 1,000 miles in the hopes of finding birds. Good luck and keep the pictures coming. It is inspiring.





cheers

One word of encouragement -- I hunted around Smith Center, Kansas, in the snow about 5 years ago. The pheasant and quail were sitting tight. Focus on cover and areas out of the wind.

Good luck.
