Ultimate Upland Cache #4 – Kansas Cache

Setter in Kansas

The bulk of my adult life I’ve made one or two trips a year to the state of Kansas to chase wild birds. Salt-of-the-earth people, a substantial amount of land enrolled in the state’s walk-in hunting program (WIHA) and a resurging Bobwhite population make it one of my perennial favorite destinations.

I look at Kansas as a bellwether for upland game across the grain belt. The market pressures that determine the direction of crops selection, habitat retention and land use are at the core of the Sunflower State’s upland experience. The state created the WIHA program in 1995 to take hunting pressure off of public wildlife areas; over 97 percent of land in Kansas is privately owned. The WIHA program allows the state to pay landowners a per acre stipend — rates are dependent on habitat quality, location, and amount — to voluntarily enroll. More than a million acres have been opened to access for hunting which has been a boon for bird hunters and the small Kansas towns who see an influx of non-resident hunters’ spending.

The upland season is open for another month in Kansas, so we’re gonna give late-season warriors a chance to find the final Ultimate Upland Cache.

The first person to locate this Ultimate Upland Cache and provide proof of discovery will get geared up by Orvis – the Upland Shell which comes in both men’s and women’s version and the new Pro Series Hunting Vest. Details on the locations of this final cache will be shared across our social platforms so be sure to follow us as we head into the wild — FacebookInstagramTwitterYouTube.

And for those unable to travel to Kansas in search of buried bird hunting treasure, we’ll be awarding secondary prizes by random selection to followers made eligible by actions detailed in the corresponding social media posts.

Ultimate Upland Cache #3 – Maine Treasure

Black dog red leaves

Sponsored by Orvis

The state of Maine is a wild gem of the Northeast. With roughly a million acres of publicly owned lands – state parks, Wildlife Management Areas, Public Reserves, National Wildlife Refuges, National Parks and Forest – there are plenty of areas accessible for hunters to get lost. There are an additional 5 million acres owned by lumber and paper companies who often permit access as well.

Maine has a rich hunting tradition and actively managed forests which offer abundant habitat for wildlife including upland game. Reasonable license fees and genuinely nice people make it a great place to challenge a bird dog with wild birds in wild places. And in the fall, the beauty of this state is tough to beat.

We made a quick trip Down East to have a few lobster rolls, chase some grouse and stash an Ultimate Upland Cache somewhere in this million acres of public lands.

The first person to find this Ultimate Upland Cache and provide proof of discovery will get geared up by Orvis – the Upland Shell which comes in both men’s and women’s version and the new Pro Series Hunting Vest. Details on the locations of this cache will be shared across our social platforms so be sure to follow us as we head into the wild — FacebookInstagramTwitterYouTube.

Ultimate Upland Cache #2 – Yooper Treasure

Hidden Treasures

Sponsored by Orvis

Many upland hunters are unaware of the hidden jewel of wild bird habitat just across the Straits of Mackinac in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. It’s remote, there is tons of public land (both state and federal) and the King of the Woods will challenge bird dogs in some of the gnarliest early successional habitat you’ll ever find.

With nearly 900,000 acres of Hiawatha National Forest and 320,000 acres of Sault St. Marie state managed land, there is a lifetime of places to explore. This is a part of the country where timbering is not a dirty word but a way of life. The active management and logging of forests keeps a balance in habitat that benefits both humans and wildlife. Though many people prefer the look of mature hardwood forests, grouse hunters know the ugly, scrubby areas with saplings and undergrowth shelter birds and provide varied diets for all sorts of wildlife.

This area also provides an abundance of places to hide an Ultimate Upland Cache. This season with the help of Orvis we hope to bring focus back to some of these wild places without which upland birds could not exist. Somewhere in the Upper Peninsula is a buried treasure for bird hunters awaiting discovery.

The first person to find this Ultimate Upland Cache and provide proof of discovery will get geared up by Orvis – the Upland Shell which comes in both men’s and women’s version and the new Pro Series Hunting Vest. Details on the locations of this cache will be shared across our social platforms so be sure to follow us as we head into the wild — FacebookInstagramTwitterYouTube.
