Pheasant hunters enjoy the freedom away from public lands hunter mentality. Being able to have more Kansas hunting land available to hunt each day than daylight hours.

Private Land Kansas Pheasant Hunting
The map is of county names and acreage available for the 2017 season.
Our land is within Kansas' grain farming regions. We make the entire state of Kansas available to us as to where to spend the Association hunters' money. That allows us to go anywhere in Kansas we need to to acquire the better hunting. This may be contrasted to a hunting lodge that would be limited to the driving distance around that lodge for their land.
The two Association partners, Jon Nee and John Wenzel, who acquire Association Kansas hunting land do each hunt pheasants with dogs they train themselves. The two partners are out on the land throughout the year. They will have good recommendations for where to go hunting.
How A Kansas Self Guided Hunt Is made
Our self guided pheasant hunts does not mean the pheasant hunter is left without resource of local knolwedge.
If allocated a membership that pheasant hunter gains access to our online private Kansas hunting land maps. That hunter can look at the same hunting map as one of the two Association partners while on the telephone of where to park the truck and put the dogs out. Each will also have a hunting plan 'A' and 'B'.
One plan we encourage on the first Kansas pheasant hunting trip is to explore different regions. Many pheasant hunters find their dogs will be better within one cover type. That region of cover may then become the favored.

Kansas Pheasant Hunting Particulars
Kansas has a season length, favorable weather, habitat variety not available in other states.
Opens the second Saturday in November to January 31. Kansas residents and non-residents have the same season days, shooting hours and bag limits. Shooting hours are from first to last light. Bag limit is 4 daily, 16 in possession.
No need to have the "must hunt the opener" attitude. We hunt through the entire season. Many find the more reliably cooler temperatures from the second week in December onward a better hunt.
The common Association hunter is split between the traveling out of state hunter and the local. Those that travel to hunt typically after the first season make two, one week trips each season. Locals are largely weekend hunters choosing the better weather weekends.
During Kansas Pheasant Hunting Season Weather
Kansas pheasant hunting season weather allows for most days for hunts. The best have 50%+ humidity, winds 10 MPH and 30's for temperature.
Wind, is the common Kansas detrimental effect. With Kansas pheasant hunting being on large acreage open fields winds in excess of 20 mph will send most to the wooded crop edge for quail.
Winter snow storms may be brutal due to wind more than accumulation. Occasional winters will have snowfall that accumulates into drifts. This causes difficulty while waiting for rural roads to be plowed.
Total ground snowfall accumulation is rarely an issue with the average winter seeing 17 inches. When snow does accumulate it's on the ground duration is commonly measured two weeks at a time before a thaw.
Rain, can be a problem. As little as a 1/4 inch turns rural dirt roads into impassible mud. Tire tread clogging adherence characteristic and a great amount of slickness. The best four wheel drive being set to all wheels spinning and no locomotion. The road maps available through Mid-America Hunting Association do identify gravel roads.
