Kansas pheasant hunting is a boost to many small towns and businesses, particularly in the western one-half of the state. Over the next couple weeks, roughly 100,000 upland bird hunters will be out and about taking advantage of various openers for upland birds. There are approximately 110,000 residents that buy a Kansas hunting license and nearly 60,000 non-residents that do the same. While some of these are deer, waterfowl and small game hunters, the majority typically hunt pheasants and quail (the quail season opens Nov. 10 statewide).
"The majority of hunting pressure is seen in the first few weeks of the season," said Mike Miller with the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks. "It's definitely a boon to rural Kansas, that's for sure."
