Kansas, Kansan featured on television Saturday

It may be too hot to get out and enjoy the  outdoors  directly but Saturday you’ll be able to kick back and enjoy a good central Kansas duck hunt from the comfort of your air-conditioned home.

Saturday at 9:30 a.m. a late-season mallard hunt will air on The Fowl Life with Chad Belding  on The Sportsman Channel. That’s channel 252 on Cox. Last year Belding filmed a late-season mallard hunt with Jim Stanford and Adam Gilkey of Central Kansas Outfitters.

They actually got enough footage for two shows. The second episode will air the following week. The show airs Thursdays at 4 a.m., Saturdays at 9:30 a.m. and Sunday at 8:30 p.m.

Saturday morning Kansan Kelsey Konrade will be a guest on Fox and Friends, channel 27 on Fox. The Ashland native has been a co-host on Bass Pro Shops Next Generation television show for several years, with hunting and fishing adventures videoed from Kansas and many other states.

Konrade has been invited to Fox and Friends to help promote the television show and Bass Pro Shops’ 2011 Fall Hunting Classics held at Bass Pro Shops stores.

Larry Konrade, Kelsey’s dad, said she’s expected to be on-air at about 7:30 a.m. and may have appearances through the rest of the show’s three hours.
