We hunted Wed. before Thanksgiving and moved 5 coveys around Lubbock in about 4 hours. All 5 had 20+ birds and one covey of blues. A pleasant change from the last few years.

I'd take that. Let's use this thread for new reports. It should be getting better now that the dogs can cover better.

Not too bad where we were at. Lots of tumbleweeds and cover, but the dog only had ocassional trouble with his feet.

Moved 7 coveys on public land 2 sundays ago. Between 10 and 20 birds in each covey. The sand burrs were terrible and we had to boot the dogs after the first pass. We only hunted for about 3 hours and didn't cover much ground. I can't wait to get back at it in the coming weeks. Next sunday I will be hunting a place in Wheeler county. I'll report back to you guys after I make that trip.

We averaged 5 coveys per day on public land after thanksgiving. It was hot, got up to around 80 degrees so we didn't hunt much in the afternoons.

Hunted all day long today in western Oklahoma (on private property, but very close to Black Kettle grassland area) and only moved 2 coveys. The weather was horrible and we didn't get to start until about 9:30 because of the rain. We managed to kill 5 birds but we walked about 10 or 15 miles to get them. Hopefully the birds are more plentiful when we hunt the eastern Texas panhandle next weekend.

That's some impressive results for public land.

9 covies this morning. 8 bobs 1 blues Hunted around 4 hours lots of big covies and the cover still looks great. Only one unproductive spot I assume we could have found birds all day. Only two repeat covies from our last hunt before thanksgiving
