A Guided Pheasant Hunt with 10 Gauge
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 the hunting gear loaded up and ready to 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.
Time to Hit the Fields!
During our Kansas pheasant hunts, 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. 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. Colder days mean 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 and a limit of roosters, we will head back to Kinsley for lunch. From there clients are able to sit back and enjoy the comforts of our hunting lodge. If you have arranged prior, we will then hunt quail in the afternoons after the group has had time to fill up on food and beverages. Quail hunts will take place in the sand hill plum thickets with dogs and UTV.
A Warm Meal at Day’s End
You will return to be served a 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 can clean your birds and package them for your return travel if requested.
Come experience our pheasant hunts with wonderful food, hospitality, and the old west feel. We look forward to seeing you here.
