    I have an opportunity to go hunt Russell Kansas this weekend for a birds. I have never been nor hunted phesant. The trip will be $500 total for license, gas, food, hotel, ammo, for 3 days of hunting. Is this worth it?

    Canned hunt or wild birds?

    $500 seems awfully reasonable for three days of hunting - all inclusive.

    This is wild birds on walk in access areas. Going with a buddy and meeting his dad who has gone several times. His dad has a dog that he takes there every year. We are staying in a hotel in russell ks

    Come on out. Co workers think im nuts missing opening modern gun weekend
  10. You are not nuts. Go and enjoy the hunt! Deer hunting to me is much less fun than a bird hunt. If you have time to play with your phone it is too slow for me. You will not even think about your phone bird hunting.

    Ya im excited for the hunting. Im just not looking forward to the drive and as we know, its peak deer movement time. I have months to bow hunt. Im gonna go back to my hunting roots. Hopefully I can add pheasant and bon white to my portfolio

    If that's a legitimate price and it's all inclusive and wild birds, you would be making a mistake not to do it. If you don't go, can I go in your place? Seriously, that's a smoking deal. Do it.

    If the WIHA are like the ones we hunt around Pratt you'll probably see more deer than you would if you stayed home and deer hunted. Bigger deer too.
