Grass being wet from the high humidity helped us today, kept Taz cool. With a forecast of 92, knew we had to get it done fast this morning. While he did bump his first chicken in years, it didn't take long to get back in tne groove. Both shot off lock down points, and found a few on walk back to truck.

Nice. I was thinking about getting out but the forecast scared me and my "Wooly" off. Decided to work with the new pup in the pond. What part of KS did you go? I was looking at Ft Riley but my niece texted me and said they scared up a nice covey of chickens on the farm in the Smokey Hills south of Wilson. I am getting reports that that area's chickens numbers are up, quail numbers are up, pheasants are about the same.

I was in the Flint Hills. If traveling i would choose the smoky hills, overall better numbers it seems to me. It was hot, but only an hour and a half away from me, and i had an idea where they were. Finished before 8am. I like to find grazed prairie fields, as long as they are not over grazed. Heard there is some thicker and taller than normal grass in that area, can make it hard to find chickens.

That's the problem I usually run across looking for chickens is the grazed fields look like the 9th hole green littered with cow pies.

Makes it really tough. Esrly in the year they will still use them, but nothing you can do to get close. If there are seeds and bugs, they tend to travel very little this time of year.

I’m going to have to go hunt some prairie chicken next year. Looks like fun and a good learning experience for Barrett.
