Welcome to Quail Quest

Who We Are


Our farm offers over 1,500 acres of CSA grass and cropland to hunt on, with a number of high quality services provided in a private and relaxing atmosphere. Kansas is one of the world’s most popular destinations for upland bird hunting. North Central Kansas, where our farm is located, has been tagged as the best in Kansas. We’re right in the middle of the best pheasant hunting region on the planet.

The ring-necked pheasant was introduced to Kansas in 1906 and has become the symbol of the state. Annual pheasant harvests here are invariably in the top 3 of the nation. In addition to the quality pheasant hunting we also have some of the best farm fishing that can be found. If you like to fish, too, contact us.

Our family comes from a hunting background. We know what is needed to insure a high quality professional hunt. Come hunt with us at Quail Quest for the upland hunting experience of a lifetime!

The Experience

It may not be coincidental that the name of the small town where we are is, Hunter, Kansas. If you’re looking for a genuine wing shooting experience and country hospitality, contact us. We have the hunt you’re looking for.

Birds, Bucks and Heartland Hospitality.
It just doesn’t get any better.
