European Tower Shoots
During the European driven tower shoot, hunters will occupy one of 8 stations located in a circle approximately 100 yards from our tower making a complete circle around the tower. The tower stretching to over 30′ in the sky is where two guides will be releasing pheasants at intervals of 10-16 per session. The pheasants when released, cruise at treetop height across the stations, streaking across the sky in all directions.
While the pheasant hunting season does not start until early November, we have CSA ground available those who want to hunt as early as SEPTEMBER or as late as MARCH!
A hunt in our CSA or Controlled Shooting Area – allows us to provide our hunters with an early & late season opportunity to hunt.
Feel the adrenaline as our guides get you into position for a shot. In one swift instant you will be overcome with quail whistling around in attempts to escape. Our quail hunts currently are an add on package to our fantastic pheasant hunts. Quail hunts are a great way to spend the afternoon in the field after having success pheasant hunting in the morning hours.
Get Your Hunting Checklist
The essentials for our Kansas pheasant hunts include:
- Shotgun – 12 or 20ga. semi auto (12ga. preferred)
- Ammo – high brass #5 – unplugged & extensions are legal to use
- Hunting pants, field boots, cap & vest
- Cooler for your birds to transport home
- House shoes – slippers. No boots or shoes in the lodge, mudroom only.
What to Wear
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. 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, and other accessories such as gloves and sunglasses.
Our Dogs & Your Dogs
Our dogs are professionally trained and handled. While we would love to see your dog in action, with the dogs we have in the field and around the lodge we respectfully ask clients to leave them at home. We want everyone to have an enjoyable time in the field, there will be plenty of shooting and our dogs are used to this atmosphere daily.
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.
Get ready to sit back and relax at the lodge after your hunt. There are plenty of amenities to enjoy from food & drink to enjoying an evening by the fire. We go to great lengths to make sure your time at our lodge is memorable.
Meals: Our meals are cooked by one of the finest chefs from Kansas City. With a strong influence of southern style cooking you will take your taste buds on a wild ride. Breakfast and lunches are typically quick and light so we can get enough hunting in. After your hunt your evening meals range from wood-fired pizzas to plated dinners showcasing some of the best southern style cooking around. All meals are pre-planned according to our schedule of hunters and guests at the lodge.
There is plenty to do around the lodge. We have a functional soda bar and coffee machine for clients to enjoy. You can get a card game going on our custom 10 Gauge Outfitter table or enjoy the sports game that might be on tv that evening. If the inside is not enough, step outside to our outdoor living area that will knock your socks off. A giant outdoor room featuring seating for everyone, large outdoor fireplace, state of the art sound system, large tv and plenty more outdoor games to enjoy.
Double Barrel Bus
Check it out! Ride in style in the Double Barrel Bus. This custom bus is decked out specifically for our pheasant and quail hunting clients. The 4×4 beast will sit 22 hunters comfortably and get you to and from the fields in any weather. Complete with storage for all your guns and ammunition safely and out of the way. Coolers are filled with water and drinks for the day in the field and what bus would not be complete with out an amazing sound system.

Join Your Local Pheasants Forever Chapter
Pheasants Forever is a nonprofit habitat organization dedicated to promoting conservation, pheasant hunting heritage, wildlife habitat, hunting access and all things related to pheasant hunting. Beginning in 1982, Pheasants Forever tries to establish chapters throughout the country, allowing pheasant hunters and conservationists to connect with others locally. Local members decide how to spend 100 percent of the locally raised money on habitat or pheasant hunting projects.
The organization holds fundraising banquets typically comprised of a dinner and an auction to raise money for education, awareness and habitat production. Periodical publications include Pheasants Forever Journal, Forever Outdoors and “On the Wing” newsletter. A sister organization called Quail Forever in 2005 to promote the same type of things for quail hunting.
