Last Saturday Bill, and his Cracker, Chris and his Clifford and Sandy, my wife and I and my dogs, Yeats and Zorro, did a lot of quail finding and very little shooting. We shot one bird and we will keep up that pace until this drought is over. It has rained and there is water in these pictures, but the drought is not over so we are being extreme conservationists. The dogs found eleven good coveys.

Yeats (the red setter) and Zorro honoring:

My wife trying to flush a single Yeats has pointed. (It was a bit to her right.)




Water dogs:




Clifford, Yeats and Cracker sharing a point or pointing birds spread out in thick bushes:

Two happy campers:




After the hunt, there were three happy eaters of crab, oysters and shrimp. Poor Chris is alergic so he had to eat tofu. Ha!:

I cannot get the picture of the feast to open.

Only 10 pictures will open per thread. Here's the oyster picture. The seafood came from Airline seafood. I'm goiung there Friday. I have a few pictures from the same hunt. Later;




I'm not sure Cracker was honoring on this picture. She somehow got into the scent cone. ET is this famous downtown litigator.

Yeats made a really wide cast, and stuck the point. ET said that Yeats really prevailed on that one. I had to teach him some bird dog talk. It was a limb find. I bumbed cracker around, and she ended up almost next to Yeats.

Yeats with the point, Cracker honoring:

Those birds look big and slow when you're not carrying a gun. We were treated to a split find after the limb find;



Yeats found this covey after his limb find. I had dinner with Bob Birtrum, and another artist at the first Quail Forever trial. We got into a conversation about taking pictures. They both agreed that the best pointing pictures were taken when the camera was lower. I tried that on this one;

Great camera and camera work. Somebody knows there way around shutter speed settings and the like.

Still trying to get my South Texas trip to happen but odds are falling with each passing week. Would love to do the same thing - lots of pictures, lots of food, and a few birds to hand.

Do another video. I loved your video from last year.

I have to post a couple for Paulette. Cracker is her baby. We came to a big flooded area. Cracker went right, and we went left. Here she is going away.



Here's how we found her.

Great pics of the birds in the air; Mr Bill are you are as good with a shotgun as you are with a camera. I still think that red setter is going to be a great dog.

Chris got the pictures of the birds in the air. He was an opra singer, and a skeet shooter in a previous life.

We also hunted Sunday in another pasture. We found only 4 coveys. There were 13 birds in this covey. Cracker had to hold the point forever, while ET, and Chris got into position. That's one good thing about this area. Birds seldom run.



Pickup time. YEATS!!!!!!!! Don't roll in that. DDT will never let you back in the house.
