    I understand your fundamental point: if PF provides help or funding, the ground should be open to PF members. I'm not getting into that. It's a third-rail issue that pits hunters against land...

    I had a pretty lackluster day on Sunday. One covey of quail, 4 hens, 1 rooster, 2 undetermined. Only a single quail fell. I hunted by myself for about 5 hours on mostly private.
