Quail and Pheasant Numbers Suffering Due to Drought

Posted: Updated:

Crops aren't the only things that have been diminished by the drought.

Hunters who fan out across Kansas Saturday for the start of quail and pheasant season are likely to find fewer birds.

The Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism says two years of drought have reduced the birds' population in most regions.

Luckily for Nebraskans, most portions of northwest and north–central Kansas were not as affected by the drought.

Quail numbers have improved slightly in the northern flint hills and northeastern Kansas.
