Upland Birds

Private Land Self-Guided Upland Bird Hunting with Mid-America Hunting Association in Kansas, Missouri and Iowa since 1965

Hundreds of miles of grain crop edge cover providing wild Bobwhite Quail and Pheasant hunting. Hunters enjoy having more land to hunt each day than daylight hours available.

Large acreage and small acreage with tall CRP grass, brushy draws and crop land habitat accommodating the flushing and pointing dog hunter. With land ranging from southern Iowa, through north Missouri, east to west Kansas insures we have good bird hunting somewhere every season. All birds are wild.

Private leased land access in Kansas, Missouri, and Iowa.

Wild Pheasant and Bobwhite quail are the primary upland bird hunting offered.

No pen raised birds, 100% natural fair chase.

All state and federal regulations apply. Licenses are supplied by the hunter.

All hunting is controlled by our telephone and online reservation system.  Each hunter will be allocated an average of 400+ acres per day. 

Choose a farm or map unit and make a reservation. No knocking on doors or tracking down landowners. The hunter simply goes to the ground and hunts providing his own equipment and skills.

Lodging is by local motels and a lodging listing is provided.

Upland Bird Hunting Pressure

The Kansas Upland Bird Opener is by far our largest upland bird attraction.  Last season opening day of the Kansas quail and pheasant season we had 41  total upland bird hunters spread across 10’s of 1000’s of acres of prime private upland bird habitat.   

On average each hunter is allocated 400 – 500 acres m/l per day for upland bird hunting.

Below are the pressure numbers from last season, which includes quail, pheasant, and an occasional prairie chicken hunt in 3 states from early November until January 31. Note: Members can hunt multiple states for multiple seasons, so those members will be counted numerous times.    


2022:  115 hunters


2022:  25 hunters
