Pheasant Population Down As Season Begins Saturday

Associated Press - November 7, 2013 8:13 am

Kansas pheasant hunters aren’t likely to see many of the birds when the season begins this weekend.

State wildlife experts say drought during most of the nesting and brooding season, combined with an already low breeding populations, will make it difficult to find birds this season, which begins Saturday.

Kurt Hudson, Kansas natural resource officer, says recent moisture could improve next year’s harvest. But he says that this hunting season is “going to be pretty bleak.”

The state wildlife agency says the best chance of hunting success will be in the southeastern part of the state.

I hope they go out further than 2 or 3 miles from salina to hunt. I know in my area they are unwanted and if treaspassing will be shot at.
