    I haven’t come across any porkies yet knock on wood, but I ran into a lot of them in North Dakota and Montana. We’re you in heavy cover or grasslands?

    Interesting. The broods Iím seeing are almost full grown but no bright plumage yet. I might have seen groups of all hens but they looked pretty small to be mature adult birds.

    I’ve had good luck in Nebraska getting roosters and quail in the same day. I looked for guzzlers which is where I would find both species together. HTH.

    I've heard of roosters where the tail is still on the ground when the bird's in the air but that's the first one I've ever seen! Awesome. :cheers: If I shot that it would be at the taxidermist's.
