My dad's friends have been to upland inn hunts for the past several years and have done great. I'm starting to plan a self guided hunt for next year, as Kansas (as well as some of nebraska) have wild quail as well. Plus those two states allow you to hunt at sunup unless I'm mistaken, whereas SD is noon for the first two weeks and 10 thereafter, which makes for some running birds. I plan to target more quail and hopefully some sharptail grouse and prairie chickens over pheasants (bobwhite and scaled quail to knock off 2 of the 6 huntable quail in North America). Best of luck to you!
You can also look at mobilehuntingmaps.com While I haven't used them yet, it seems like a better version of onX where they lay habitat and good cover over the gps maps. I plan to try them out in October for grouse in the north woods. Seems promising to help dial in an area for a self guided hunt.
Thanks gentlemen, after speaking with the folks at Ringneck pheasant farms in Tiptop Kansas we’ve pretty much made up our minds to hunt with them. Nice accommodations hunting both mornings and afternoons and they have a sporting clays course too. That should fill up our 3 day hunt nicely. 6 bird per man limit daily as well as chukar hunting. All inclusive package. Looking at late October or early November. This will be my first bird hunt we’re I travel away from home to do. Picked up a Franchi affinity 12 gauge for the hunt.
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!
