We found 7 coveys by around 10:30. The one crop we opened was loaded with goat weed seed. I think they were done feeding by 9:00.

We passed on the opener because of temps.

We're headed to Cottle County next weekend.
Supposed to have lows in the low 40s and a high around 70.

I will post something afterwards.

I have a head cold from hell, so I didn't chase any birds.

When we.killed 5 rattlers in camp during dove season 3 weeks ago, I determined that it needed to get a lot colder before I show up with a truck load of dogs. And I mean a lot colder!

Got this from a friend with some great pictures.

"Huge coveys but it was hot and the seasoned dogs wore out quick. Ran the 4 pups just for experience but only one really clicked. If our shooting had been better we'd have had a good meal lol."

It was real hot @ 90deg. Saturday afternoon, my dogs found 4 coveys around 15-20 birds each, but I only managed 4 birds in the bag. Sunday morning was much better; cooler and a little dew on the ground. Clyde and Evie pointed out 4 coveys and I managed to shoot a little better getting six.

What general area did you hunt? I hunted in Wharton county.
