1 Day Pheasant Hunt (Small Group)

Upland Inn Hunts

Upland Inn Hunts started in 2005 as a research facility to work with universities and their grad students to find ways to increase upland game bird numbers. With many parts of the US having seen dramatic decreases in their pheasant and quail populations, we wanted to make sure that we invested in the research and habitat to make sure upland game birds would continue to thrive in the Great Plains. With our 12,000 acres, including 21 CRP fields we had the unique opportunity to focus on habitat on a large scale range. By utilizing controlled burns, strip disking, inter-seeding, food plots, and many other habitat maintenance treatments, our goals are to provide everything a game bird needs to thrive (from nesting to brood rearing to over winter survival). By strategically placing our CRP fields around pivot irrigated corn, milo, wheat, and bean fields, we can provide the nesting and roosting cover directly next to a food source that a pheasant desires. We have found that having pivot irrigated agriculture fields bordering our CRP fields helps with survival even during the dryer years.

Located near Greensburg, KS, we are located about 1 hour and 45 minutes west of Wichita, KS, or 45 minutes east of Dodge City, KS. The sandy farm soils of our area provide the perfect mix of CRP, agriculture, and sand hill plum pastures that all wildlife flourish in.

Our CRP fields range from 80 acres to 320 acres in size, providing plentiful habitat. We have several pivot corners enrolled in the CRP program as well. With each field having multiple food plots, the pheasants flock into these prime habitat areas during the hunting season. We have seen up to 800 pheasants during a 4 hour hunt on our best days. We recently set a record on our road side count surveys with 307 pheasants spotted in the 1 hour prior to sunset (survey was taken on September 22nd).

With over 11 years of research data to help with our habitat decision making, we feel we can provide as good of wild pheasant hunting as anywhere you can find in the world. We also noticed that other wildlife have responded positively to our habitat program, with quail, deer, turkey, rabbits, and many non game species having more than tripled versus pre habitat improvement numbers. While we are most proud of the quality of our habitat, and the responding bird numbers, we want to make sure you have the ultimate hunting experience by providing excellent lodging and accommodations along with top notch meals to make this the hunt of your dreams. Our quality pointing and flushing dogs will add the icing to the cake for your dream hunt.

KANSAS PHEASANT HUNTING AT UPLAND INN HUNTS

Upland Inn prides itself in providing some of the best wild pheasant hunting in the world. And with highest limit in the nation at 4 roosters per day, we can provide you 33% more harvested birds than a state like South Dakota. We invest extensive resources in our 21 CRP fields to provide everything a pheasant needs to thrive. This starts with the backbone of a pheasants habitat needs in well maintained native grass. We use controlled burns to prevent the native grass from becoming too thick and rank, strip disking to open up the ground for broods to use as bugging areas, inter-seeding to provide more forb and legume growth (that studies show increases insect numbers by 300%), and food plots to provide an excellent food source during fall and winter.

Our CRP is Key

The goal is always to provide quality habitat for pheasants to use during all stages of their life cycle. Another benefit to our CRP fields is that every field has at least 2 sides that has pivot irrigated cropland. These fields are typically planted in either corn, beans, milo, or wheat. The constant moisture provided from the pivot irrigated fields provides moisture for the birds during the drier summer months, as well as some cooler vegetation to escape the summer heat. We believe that this is a key reason why our bird numbers remain so high even during the drought years. When mother nature provides abundant moisture like she has the last couple of years, the pheasant population numbers are amazing.

Pheasants As Far As the Eye Can See

We recently set a record on our road side counts by spotting 307 pheasants in the 1 hour prior to sunset! Because we have 12,000 acres and 21 CRP fields, most of our fields only get hunted 2 or 3 times per season, ensuring that late season hunts are as good as early season hunts. Because we are much further South than the other pheasant states, late season hunting is typically quite comfortable. Average highs in December and January are around 45°, which is very comfortable as your walking through CRP grass. The fast action will keep your blood flowing as well. Some of our best hunts have occurred in January, as the birds will tend to flock to the best habitat, which our CRP fields provide.

Your Typical Kansas Pheasant Hunt

Most groups arrive the afternoon before their hunt. If your group can arrive before 4 pm, we can take you on a wildlife tour around our properties. You will be amazed at the amount of birds that can be seen the last hour of sunlight as the birds go to and from our CRP fields to feed in the surrounding agricultural fields. Deer, turkey, quail, and many other wildlife species are also typically observed.

A typical day of pheasant hunting will start with a delicious breakfast of biscuits and gravy, ham/sausage/eggs, cinnamon rolls, or one of the other delicious meals our cook will prepare. We will typically head to the fields at around 9 am, and the average group limits out in around 4 hours or so. After getting your limits, we will head back to the lodge for an excellent lunch. For those that would like to shoot some more after they get their limit, we can take you out for a predator hunt (no charge) in that afternoon, or we can go trap shooting at the local range. Once back to the lodge, the fun continues with pool, shuffleboard, darts, Foosball, poker table, bow and arrow target shooting, ping pong, and many other options to keep you entertained. A dinner of prime rib-eyes, smothered steak, or one of the other great meals prepared by our chef will get the energy tanked filled for a night of storytelling about the days hunt. Homemade pies for desert will put that final smile on your face.

Our Pheasant Hunting Dogs

We use a combination of pointing dogs and flushing dogs to provide you with different experiences hunting behind different breeds. We also strongly encourage you to bring your own dogs as well, as there is nothing like the feeling of seeing your own dog get into hundreds of wild pheasants. Currently we have 6 English Pointers, 2 German Shorthairs, 1 Vizsla, and 6 Labs. Because of the thick cover in our CRP fields, and the fact that we don’t put much pressure on each field, we tend to get a lot of points from our pointing dogs.
