    I haven't made it to the SW panhandle yet. New Mexico quail opens tomorrow, I'm seriously considering giving it a try somewhere in the SE part of the state.

    We were in the area between Alice and Falfurrias. I don't know much about south Tx hunting, it was my first time to hunt down there. The ranch we were on is definitely a deer hunting operation. I was...

    It's true that the birds are good down south. Was on a deer hunt a couple of hours south of San Antonio last weekend, and we saw tons of quail.

    I've had very good results with the 2 & 3/4" B & P Upland Game nickel-plated 5's, 1 & 1/2 oz, 1325 fps. It's a premium shell, but not outrageously priced at $16 a box from Natchez.

    Last year I...

    Good advice above from A5.
    For me, it's all about making sure I'm in front of the head/beak of the bird. When I miss, it's almost always due to shooting behind the bird.

    My wife got a pair of women's upland pants from LL Bean last year and she really likes them. Around $90 dollars or so if I remember correctly.

    Yeah I was just pointing out that there's a bunch of places in both states releasing birds. For the public land hunter, I don't think it's relevant in either state.

    I agree about it being...

    No doubt about it, being able to hunt at sunrise in SD would make it a LOT easier to get a limit. I don't mind the 10am start, I always use the time between 8 and 9:30 to drive around and scout. ...

    My only hunting experience with a 28 gauge is with wild bobwhites here in Texas. IMO, a 3/4 oz load of 8's in a 28 gauge is the perfect bobwhite load.

    I think that the Fiocchi Golden Pheasant...

    That's a good question. Hard to see how there could be much difference when there wasn't really any different between light mod and imp mod. I'm puzzled by that for sure.

    I decided on a distance of 35 yards. That seems to be about the average 1st shot when I’m hunting wild birds in SD.

    Same here, I'm going regardless of what the report says. To be honest, I saw just as many birds year before last as I did last year, even though the report said a pretty big increase.
