    Pete,
    What town are you in? How far are you willing to drive? How early do you want to get up? Your age? I assume you have no dog?

    Upland, I agree that warmer temps make it harder to find the birds. I think part of it is that they stay in the food (corn) fields more of the day, since they don't have to snuggle-up to a clump of...

    Have you tried cutting the spine out? I use shears on pheasant, but I don't know if they are small enough to spine (or spatchcock) a quail. Maybe I should make an effort to go quail hunting, so I...

    With pheasant, I cut out the spine, and when removing, everything except the lungs come out. I then run my finger under them, and they come out easily. Doves, though, I just take the breast. ...

    Sunday succes, vs Saturday success

    For those of you who hunt both days on many weekends, do you find Sunday success to be less than Saturday, both in number of birds found, and number harvested?

    Yes, the grass is shorter this year, than last. Birds will be able to see blaze orange very easily from far away.
