So me and the dog went to the Chap Friday and Saturday and after several years of going and not getting any birds, we finally got some. Saw about 7 covies on Friday in a half day and about three on Saturday. Only was able to bag a couple due to my shooting . Cover was really good and you can tell they have been getting some good rain. Below is a video I did from my cell phone of my dog trying to find some singles that broke off of a covy.
Loc: San Marcos, TX
I went down for Saturday morning. Found 1 covey, worked on a couple of the smaller groups after the flush. Didn't kill any birds, but had a nice time. Heard quite a bit of shooting. They told me at check station that 400 birds were turned in Friday.
He'll Ya we did. A whole one in the bag. It was a single from a covey that the dog bust!!. If my shooting was good, we could have had my guess five to seven on Friday. Two to three birds on Saturday.
Sorry I 're read your post and you said THE quail. Not from th video no.that was from Saturday. Yes those wild birds are different game of beasts. The cover was thick and there is not much to see with the dog work with cover being thick.
