The drought had a big impact on the Kansas birds this summer.

High temperatures and little rain made things difficult across the central plains this summer. The scorching
heat made it difficult on farmers and emergencies were declared across many of the states in America’s
Breadbasket including Kansas.

As a result of the drought and the emergency crop harvesting the pheasant population has suffered. The
outlook is not particularly good for the pheasants in many areas of the state. There are a few bright spots
and depending on the area you could actually see some improvements, but overall the expectation is for
the 2012 pheasant season to be down from last year, which follows a downward trend from the past few
seasons.

Even with the poor outlook for the pheasant population in Kansas there are still hunters getting excited
about the upcoming season. It’s great to see new generations of pheasant hunters getting excited even if
the plan isn’t to see a ton of birds in the field.

One pair of hunters out there this season will be Larry Pruitt and his 9-year old daughter. She’ll be hunting
for the first time. She has a new .410 shotgun and she’s already been busy shooting it in preparation for the
pheasant hunt with her dad.

There is nothing better than realizing what hunting is all about. Sure, we all want to fill the daily bag limit
when we hit the woods and the field, but more than that hunting is about spending time with family and
friends. Hunting is about being in the outdoors and enjoying a part of life that is too often forgotten in
today’s world.

You simply can’t beat a day out in the woods hunting with a parent, grandparent, brother or sister. It’s all
about the memories you create. It’s great to see families still enjoying the hunt even when the numbers are
lower this year compared to last.
