killing ducks is some of the funnest animal killing, but they taste like absolute crap, so i had to stop.

I just ate my duck last night and thought it was good  :dunno:

Better than pheasant IMO

Wood ducks are good mallards are ok, the diving ducks are not edible.  Blasphemy on the pheasant part.

Give me some good pheasant recipes. So far I've cooked one in a slow cooker with bacon/cream of mushroom and roasted in the oven basting in Olive Oil every 20 minutes. The roasted one was better IMO.

I'm heading out to the cat ranch this weekend for one more chance to blast birds and this time I will have 2 trained bird dogs to hunt with on Saturday. Looking forward to seeing how many birds I've aimlessly walked past when I hunted solo.

Milo and Lady will be coming along too but I don't plan to bring Milo out in the fields with the trained dogs as she will probably just get in the way. Might do a short hunt with her and the other dogs after we have killed some birds but I think she will spaz out being surrounded by 2 other dogs and 4 bro's.

Assuming she responds well to gunshots again I'm planning on taking her for her first solo hunt sometime on Sunday aka I'll just turn her loose in the CRP and let her run around while I follow her with a shotgun.

I'm about 68% sure I just spooked a mt lion while pheasant hunting in our CRP.....

It was too far away to be 100% sure but it was a large cat and brownish, took off running through CRP when I was about 150 yards away.

Watched it run across the pasture and over some other fields.

It was in some tall grass so it was hard to see exactly how big it was but it appeared larger than a bobcat.

I mean, it was probably a bobcat but if it was a bobcat it was a very large bobcat. Definitely was a "woah dude" moment.

Got skunked on the cat ranch this morning but found a WIHA honey hole that's 3 miles away. Creeky/grassy draw surrounded by corn fields. Got 2 roosters and missed another. At the end of the draw about 10 birds flushed, had to track a rooster I hit so I couldn't get another.

It was either a bobcat or a very large farm cat

I texted my coyote hunting cousin after I saw it and he said it was probably a bobcat and then later in the day I saw him driving around trying to find it.

He pulled up to the house as I was outside and our conversation went like this.

Cousin: Wish I could find that bobcat, worth $60 bucks.

Ben ji: Yeah, it took off pretty far. I'm going to hunt the CRP for pheasant again real quick if you want to join.

Cousin: Nah, fur guy is in goodland this weekend. Going to see if I can get a coyote.

Ben ji: You going to call them in from your coyote blind?

Cousin: Nope, quick hunt. Gonna drive around some corn stubble and see if I can pin one down.

I didnt really know what he meant and then he just took off driving around in some corn stubble across the road that didn't belong to us. (I'm Assuming he has permission since he is a local)

Are their wild populations of Chukar in KS or were you hunting a game preserve?

If there are wild populations where are they at?

I went duck hunting today with a buddy and it sucked, should of done one last day trip chasing pheasant around Salina.

They were on a controlled area. Buddy had some family in town and they wanted to hunt a bit. The chukar are good for dog work.

Gotcha. I was hunting a large piece of WIHA out west last weekend and heard blast after blast a couple of miles away. I was getting super jelly that I hadn't seen any birds and picked the wrong part to hunt.

When I drove around to the other side of the WIHA I saw there was a controlled shooting area adjacent to it and a big group of people hunting it.

I'm assuming that whoever owns the CSA plants birds out there for you to hunt?
