Harold,

I forgot to tell you the birds have wised up by now and especially those on public ground. You and the dogs may be quiet but they know orange isn't good! I watched about 30 birds get up 100 yards away and they were in stuff over my head when I got on top a ridge. This was 3 weeks ago.

Hopefully you enjoyed the trip and the scenery.

Ken

Harold , sounds like a typical Kansas late season hunt. But you found birds, saw big flocks, ran the dogs in big fields and had fun. So, did you find some good pie?

I’m supposed to take an older fellow out on his farm after quail. He doesn’t have bird dogs anymore, only some yippy little step on dog, he doesn’t walk well anymore but remembers how it used to be. I’ll run my bird dogs without a gun and he can shoot.

Then I’m off southwest for a week to close the season. Should be great hunting. We are exhibiting Parkers at the Pheasant Fest in mid Feb in Sioux Falls if anyone is interested.

I am guessing like most birds pheasants can see color and hunter safety orange does stick out in the game fields like a shrieking Rosie O'donell at a Republican rally. You don't see the british shooters wearing the orange for a reason. I think the beaters do though.

Sounds like a good time Bruce, good luck to you! Going to the Southern this year?.
I think the pheasants acute hearing helps it more than there vision. They are often in waist high grass fields that they couldn't possibly see over, but they hear you with the first footstep you take in the field.
