With November upon us, many area hunters are getting ready for that traditional trek down Interstate 70 for the opening weekend of upland bird season.
Western Kansas, with its rolling prairies and acre upon acre of farmland, offers ideal pheasant and quail habitat that makes for some of the best upland bird conditions in the country.

“Yes, there is something at the show for all those that love Kansas outdoors,” said Phil Taunton, organizer and host of the What’s in Outdoors radio program on KVOE-AM (1400) in Emporia.
