    Beautiful country, add a lot of buck brush and you basically have mountain quail habitat. I wish my mountains were that green this year.

    Threads like this keep me checking UPH constantly during the fall/winter months. I've never seen country like that first hand, nor have I hunted "Duskies", so I get some vicarious thrills when I see this stuff. Thanks for posting!

    Now I'm really looking forward to the stories and pics from QH and his CA adventures.

    I think they are a blast to hunt. A little easier to get lost then the plains. Scenery is definitley better, but the air is thinner...

    Here's is another hunt with my pointer. Sangre de Cristos in autumn attire.



    Stroll through aspen and spruce.

    Man those are some beautiful mountains you patrol Escopeton. A day in a place like that recharges the spirit, with or without a bird in hand.
