Thread: Trinity Outfitters, Ennis, Texas. Anyone Used Them?

  1. #11

    Default If it is too good to be true...

    Just figured out that hunting for 3 days at 8 hours p/day (with no breaks-straight through), a total of 24 hours, it figures out to 4.67 coveys p/hour of hunting. Now something is rotten in Denmark and in TX. That's the best laugh I have had in a while.. Now tell me a Western. Someone must be hittin-da-pipe!!!

    Yes it appears he was "having me on" as the Brits say.

    I thought maybe the "112" was a typo and 12 was the intended number. The "five hours from Dallas" seemed odd as well; five hours from Dallas puts you in Houston. "The 163 birds" seemed unusual as well.

    Being relatively new to the site, I took him at his word. I tend to give folks the benefit of the doubt. Clearly the joke's on me and that's OK.

    No joke intended anywhere! I wasn't there, but what I was told. This guy being an avid hunter and a friend to back him up. I believe it. Why would he lie about it? They were not anywhere close to Dallas, so I made a mistake on location but I guess everyone's allowed their own opinions. Will not put any future posts in the Texas forum. Sounds like you Texans need to get out and explore the state a little more. I checked the town, it's 4 hours and 53 minutes from Dallas.

    You all can have your laughs. I am not the fella that PheasantWhisperer was talking about but I moved 108 coveys like this in early December:

    Day 1: Arrive at lease at about 2:00 pm, hunting by 2:45 until 4:45 - 16 coveys.

    Day 2: Hunting by 7:45, hunt until about 12:15 until a dog gets hurt - take dog to vet. Get back from vet, get started hunting about 2:45. Stop hunting a hair after 5:00 p.m -- 34 coveys.

    Day 3: Start hunting around 8:00 a.m. Hunt all day, few interruptions, quick "snack" lunch. End the day a little after 5:00 had a dog run off from the truck and point a covey. That last covey was the 52nd covey of the day. We saw three more coveys on the drive out of the lease.

    Day 4: Get started at 8:00. Hunt for about 2 hours, move 6 coveys. Hit the road for the drive back home.

    That's roughly 5.75 coveys per hour or a covey every 10 minutes. And it was every bit of that, I can assure you.

    On our 52 covey day, we had one walk that was just amazing. We were in birds before we could put shells in the gun and moved our last covey about 60 yards from the truck and literally had 4 occasions when both dogs were on point 100 + yards away from one another on separate coveys.

    Either you are an idiot or a troll. I'll let you pick. For the others, take a look at the Rolling Plains Quail Research Ranch and follow Dr. Rollins on what has happened in west Texas.

    I believe him.

    Our group went 2nd week of January. Didn't reach his covey count, but then again we were limited out by early afternoon 2 of 3 days. Oftentimes resembled a dove hunt. was great for the puppies. Not often you can put a check cord on a young dog and work them on wild birds.

    That was extremely rude. No need for name calling.

    "For the others" attached is an article by Dr. Rollins dated Nov 12. Titled "Breaking Records at RPQRR"

    My last post in this thread was just an internet faux pas on my part.

    I had sent PheasantWhisperer a PM requesting a general area to start my search, asking no specifics. I knew he had gone afield hunting but after a bit he was apparently back and posting in various parts of the forum. Some time passed and there was no reply to the PM or in this thread and I made an _ass_upmtion. We all know what happens when one assumes.

    So, just another mistake and I just go on.

    I have read about Rolling Plains before. I was aware that this year was reported as very good for quail in West Texas. Reading the personal experiences and more RPQRR reports it appears it was beyond "very good" and into "outstanding".

    Missed my chance this year as work is overwhelming right now but hopefully there's always next year.

    Thanks for the reports.
