Went quail hunting for the first time!

Wow, had no idea it would be so much fun. These suckers fly hard & fast & low, it was amazing. I used the same guide as I did for the goose hunting, he's great, and the dogs were amazingly well trained, he didn't have to say a word to them. I'll be going again with him for pheasants, and maybe Sea Ducks.

We got a couple of pheasants, too...

The cover was sooooo thick & thorny, a real, true, earn your game hunt, not at all like I expected. Been watching too much ESPN...

As a side note, not saying Cheney was not to blame, as everyone knows, but I can see how clearly it could happpen that he shot his buddy. These things fly so low & fast & thru cover that you have only a split second to react, and I can see how an accident like that could happen. Scary. Of course, as I said, it's no excuse.

Sweetness! Quail aren't too easy hit, but still easier than doves!

Where were you hunting?

This was in Putnam County, NY, on state land. The state raises/buys and stocks em, but they sure know how to stay alive, in the thickest cover ever seen...
