Welcome to Fantasy Flyers! We raise quality game birds (Quail and Pheasant) for the avid outdoorsmen, conservationists and those who are interested in putting their young dogs or beginner hunters on quality birds. We started providing birds because we knew there were other hunters around that loved to get on birds as much as we do and we’d noticed that there were fewer and fewer wild birds available. Especially with the reduced amount of moisture that we’ve been getting in the past several years.
We have entertained many a hunter here at Fantasy Flyers and continue to provide a down-to-earth environment where hunters can relax, stay in our bunkhouse and hunt for half or full days.
We are designated by the Kansas Department of Wildlife (KDWP) as a private fee-to-hunt or controlled shooting area. We have 1280 acres in the Quinter, Kansas area available that is filled with upland game bird habitat. Our season runs from September 1st through March 31st of every year. You do not have to have a hunter-safety card to hunt with us but you are required to have a special controlled shooting area license that costs only $27.50 and can be purchased online or at Q-Value Hardware located on Main Street in Quinter, KS.
Due to the drought conditions in so many states, there are fewer wild birds that survive the drier conditions. Why not bring your young dog and train on our birds? Or bring your younger hunters and teach them how to shoot birds in a safe environment and without being pressured to share the only bird you’ve found in miles and miles of trudging through field after field? Just spending time together could pay off in the long run. Besides, it will get them away from the computerized gadgets for a weekend and into the outdoors where they just may learn some valuable skills that will last them a lifetime!
Small groups are best. We are big on safety! This experience would be good for corporate team-building. Camaraderie and trust are built when a field with birds, dogs and guns are involved. Groups such as sales, leadership and management teams, etc. would all benefit by being a part of this experience. Phil likes small groups, no more than 5, in the field so rotating larger teams would be essential and doable. What a great way to get out of the office, build the trust factor between co-workers and be able to take the lessons learned back to the company and its customers!
Our birds are different than any other pen-raised birds because of the way we raise them. Our pens are large and are not overpopulated so the pheasants grow extremely long tail feathers and are allowed room to fly. We challenge you to be able to tell the difference between our birds and the wild ones! We never hood our pheasants because we want them to look and act exactly as their wild cousins… all for your benefit! Here at Fantasy Flyers, we attempt to make the hunting experience the absolute best you will ever have! Why? Because we appreciate your business and want you to come back and hunt with us again and again!
Whether you bring your dog, use ours, bring young people, friends or just yourself, we offer guidance, birds and a beautiful outdoor Northwest Kansas experience. We also offer a variety of services such as wild bird hunts on our land and surrounding leases. We have a stocked pond that is available for great largemouth bass or bluegill fishing in the summer and a bunkhouse that sleeps 8 with a full kitchen and bath complete with a hot shower. There is a full size refrigerator for you to stock your favorite beverage and a BBQ grill available to cook those sizzling steaks after a great hunt. For a small additional charge, we will clean and package the birds that you kill so all you have to do is throw them in the cooler for your next meal. We will even provide a picture of you with your kill so you will have something in your hand to remind you what a great time you had with Fantasy Flyers!
Are you in the market to purchase birds for your property? Are you hosting a hunt at another location and need birds? We sell our birds too! Can’t come and pick them up? We’ll bring them to you as long as you cover our fuel. Call Phil for more information on his cell phone at 785-299-0040 or on Sherry’s phone at 785-769-4122.
We accept a 25% non-refundable* deposit which protects you from us booking other people in at the same time you’ve reserved your stay with us. It also protects us so that we don’t turn down business in the event you don’t show up. We hope that you understand this policy. (*In an emergency situation, we may offer a refund. We realize that sometimes things happen that are out of our control.)
Fantasy Flyers has a 5 acre pond on the property that is available to be fished for a nominal fee unless you are hunting with us. If you are hunting with us, the fee is waived. Fed by a fresh spring year ‘round, the pond offers tons of opportunities to feed the family with either bass, bluegill and other sunfish.
In 2008, the tornado that waged a war with the original bunk and brooder houses also picked up our neighbor’s silo and relocated into our pond! It remained there until this past summer. Bullfrogs and turtles of all types call this pond home and seem to get along just fine with the rest of the wildlife that thrives here. They seem to enjoy the quiet just as much as our visitors do!
We have a silver Grumman canoe by the bank for your use should you decide to dip your line in while you’re staying with us. If you’d like, we invite you to bring your pole and attempt to catch dinner for the evening!
Fishing is available for $20/person/day, unless you’re hunting with us. You are welcome to keep the fish that you catch as our gift to you.
