I called this one in for my wife Yesterday Morning, 8 3/4 beard, 15lb 8oz., 3/4 and 15/16 inch spurs.
It took me 1hour and 45 minutes from the time I heard him to call him within range, watched him strut and drum as he came into sight from behind a large clump of palmettos. A lot of hens are bred and these guys are really active now for some lovin. By the time she got the bird my adrenaline was used up, LOL, what a great morning.
Had a great quail hunt yesterday with my brother and good friend. My brother is on the left and my fiend is in the middle. Great fellowship and comradery had by all.
Good dogs, perfect short palmetto habitat and beautiful weather, great day.
