    Wheat crop is in the bin before quail nest. There is a surprise ( at least to me) in Oklahoma that quail are nesting and succeeding in soybean fields!

  3. Shadow

    I kind of liked Shadow! Good pictures, of course I took the jabber with a grain of salt, ( like this particular forum). Also his counter part from Colorado with the shorthairs, used a muzzle loader,...
  4. It's part of the game!

    I don't discount the nose or ability of a lab I have one now! Most have a superior nose to an even number of pointers, but that's an opinion. I think it depends on the game. Pheasants are a down in...

    If you have ever lost a dog for period of time, you will not disavow a GPS. In today's hunting with either vast fields of overgrown CRP, or the converse, small hunting habitats bordered by dog...

    I had a Lab have it in 1991. Had a grafted on ligament with the nylon for reinforcement. The nylon caused irritation and would not heal. Back in and remove, but scar tissue strengthened the joint....

    If you can handle them!

    I agree! Bigger, tough, with an ingrained wildness. My least favorite are chuckars, wander around like clowns in the field, no upland camouflage, with their desert plumage, difficult to get to fly,...

    Some items you think are in the rear view mirror seem to comeback and revisit us again! I think it would be a mistake, in retrospect I think it was a mistake to transfer a lot of U.S. property to...

    My little girls learned to shoot on Gram Crakr's. I love the report like a ladyfinger on fourth of July. Great dispersed pattern, pattern before velocity I think. It will verify the value of...

    wildness

    I think we all know that pheasants are far more wary than quail originally released, some sub species better than others! But I can assure you with a little work you can produce quail which are...

    Iowa has similar law. Don't seem to have the same issue. I am not real whippy on the law, but it's been that way forever. If they want to make a change perhaps lobby the state legislature to change...

    I do Proso Millet for doves. I have used buckwheat for duck food and quick cover in waterfowl areas with great results. The millet will leave some bare ground a big plus for doves.

    I went to a trial there years ago. Lots of areas which are off limits here and there, due to war games and un-exploded ordinance. Also serpentine wire all over the place will slice your dog in two...

    Pa. as apposed to Kansas

    While Pa. has some make up work to do.....it used to be Kansas, or better! Good to see the birds are making it, worried about the recent blizzard. I guess we will see how right the habitat is now!

    Get a dog!

    Maybe find a quail hunter to take you. As a serious pursuit it requires commitment. Shooting a quail is O.K., shooting a quail over your dog's point is priceless.
