10 Gauge Outfitters offers some the Best Kansas Pheasant Hunting for both small pheasant hunting groups or corporate pheasant hunting trips, with our lodge that can accommodate up to 20 people. We specialize and pride ourselves in tailoring your Kansas pheasant hunt into a truly unforgettable experience. In addition to strong pheasant numbers for the upcoming 2017 pheasant hunting season, we also have good populations of quail available for afternoon hunting. Here in Kinsley, Kansas we've got nothing but surrounding farmland and open plains which our upland game thrives upon. When you go hunting with us, you're not only getting a great hunt, but you're also getting away from the office. Spend the mornings shooting all the pheasant you can handle, and evenings kicking back around the campfire telling stories of those missed or great shots you had.
Pheasant hunting is not highly complex. In fact, a major key to improving chances of shooting a ring-necked rooster is to spend some time continually practicing shotgunning skills at the trap, skeet or sporting clays range.
At 10 Gauge Outfitters, you will awake to the smell of a country breakfast with coffee brewing. While you eat your breakfast and prepare for the morning hunt, we will get everything loaded up and head to the field. Early in the morning you have the opportunity to watch our German Shorthairs work in the morning sunrise, as there is nothing more beautiful than a rooster pheasant on the rise, a german shorthair swiftly behind on point and the sun just breaking the horizon.
Once in the field, hunters walk with their group into the wind as much as possible. This helps the bird dogs find and track the scent and can help prevent the hunting party from flushing the pheasants out of shooting range. Here at 10 Gauge Outfitters, we hunt a mixture of CRP grasslands and row crops.
Walk with shotgun pointed in a safe direction yet ready for a smooth, quick shot on a flushing pheasant. The colder the day, the slower the walking pace as birds are more likely to hold tight in the thick field cover. Listen carefully to the surroundings as sometimes pheasants in dense cover will rustle the weeds and grass before flushing.
After a couple of hours of hunting behind you, we will then have lunch in the field or (if the group have already bagged their limit) lunch at the lodge. Generally we will hunt Quail in the afternoons after the group has harvested their limit of pheasants. These hunts will take place in the Sand Hill Plum thickets of western Kansas.
You will return to be served a country style dinner and dessert that is guaranteed to restore burnt calories from the days hunt. Once your appetite is satisfied, you may lounge around in the game room to tell the stories of the day’s events (true and stretched truths we are sure). Meanwhile our staff cleans your birds and packages them for your return travel.
Come join us for a Kansas Pheasant hunt with wonderful food, hospitality, and the old west feel. Hope to see you here.
Kansas being one of the top producers of wheat makes an ideal Habitat for nesting pheasants. KDWP allows hunters to start at sunrise--allowing you to see a sunrise with bird dogs working and roosters on the rise--what possibly could be a better sight? We hunt cut milo, CRP grass, Irrigated corners and shelter belts.

The essentials for pheasant hunting include a shotgun, hunting pants, field boots, a hat or cap and hunting vest. Nearly any shotgun gauge will do but most pheasant hunters use a 12- or 20-gauge shotgun with 2-3/4 inch shells holding #4, 5, 6 or 7.5 size shot. Hunting or “field pants” are highly recommended, especially those with canvas-faced fronts. Comfortable field boots, especially durable leather boots, help feet trudge through fields. A blaze orange hat or cap helps with field safety and of course blocks the sun. A hunting vest with blaze orange material holds harvested game birds, shotgun shells, water bottles, dog supplies and other accessories such as gloves and sunglasses.
