Early word out of Kansas is the pheasant hunting has been difficult.

The first part of the story is the difficult conditions leading up to the hunt. Things got off to a pretty good start in areas of the state with the relatively mild winter and good spring conditions. The birds seemed to be off to a good hatch, but drought kicked in hard throughout the summer making it difficult for the birds, especially the young ones, to survive through to the hunting season.

The drought rarely let up throughout the summer in many parts of the country and it’s been hitting hard in Kansas where water was scarce and the birds are as well. It was with this outlook that hunters took to the fields for the opening weekend where they were also met with another surprise.

The winds blew upwards of 40-50 miles per hour and combined with the mild temperatures the hunting just never stood a chance of success. A few hunters braved the conditions and found the birds few and far between. If you were looking for a challenge in bird hunting you would have found it on opening weekend in the Kansas pheasant hunt.

Other hunters spent just a little time in the field figuring it was a lost cause. Many took their turns trying other hunts like duck and deer. The warm weather rarely makes for good hunting of any kind.

The outlook for the rest of the pheasant hunting season in Kansas is still down from previous years, but if the weather improves you should be able to spend more time in the field and even find a few birds out there. Everybody is hoping that next year the rain kicks in and brings everything back to life in the area.

Best of luck the rest of the season and here’s hoping things pick up a bit.
