Fall in Kansas & Hunting Calendar

It seems the fall weather has finally arrived in Kansas! Today it is a delightful 75 degrees with a light wind. O the beauty of Fall in Kansas!

The weather change seems to affect everyone around here, including the dogs. Excitement builds for all! They start to sense that season is nearing. I think it is contagious across all species. Dogs, wildlife and people alike.

Only 1 month left until the first day of pheasant season at Ringneck Ranch (October 1st, 2011 – Mid March 2012) !
