I never missed opening or last weekend for years. Then I did. My plans are to make my last quail hunt of the season Wednesday. Is it still special to you? What are your plans?

Unless something drastic happens, my last hunt was in encinco week before last. Enjoyed a couple of days with my son. Was glad we got into birds.

They finally quit deer hunting on my type II deer lease. Kept hearing the deer hunters talk about all the quail they were seeing. Drove and walked a lot of that 2400 acres, never saw a quail and never heard a whistle. Meadow Larks you think??? bang
Also Zeke the GSP wouldn't get 50 yards away. Too many years as house dog and no field time. I have a pointer pup coming next month and Bill O put me on to a good trainer. I have a lease for next year so no pointing house dog. laugh

Its hit or miss on if I will do one more wild hunt. I will be running Cash for customers on a canned pheasant hunt Friday. Scott won't get a medical release to shoot until next month.

Doing a pen raised shoot for a charity, I will never call pen raised a hunt.

Our last weekend was this one. Made one last run to Oklahoma. Hot and dry is all I can give for a report. I think we killed three birds (Hunted Saturday 4 hrs & Sunday 3 hrs) Still one of our best seasons in years, our dogs had over 100 wild birds killed over them this season (retrieved 91 - lost more than 9 - plus there was 30 (If I remember correctly) pen raised birds killed over them at Walters place. Hope someone can get out and get em for this last weekend in Texas. I'll be working on next season.

We ended snipe season this afternoon with a limit. It was a good season.

Quail season for me ends next Sat. I'm taking an 85 yr old friend of mine, and his 14 yr old Brittany. We'll see how it goes; but it should be special. I'm planning to be pointing a camera more than a gun.

I wanted to make it to Oklahoma before Quail season ended up there, but too many things going on to take enough time away to go where I know there are birds. Still don't have quail anymore on our lease in young county and don't have any places to hunt public in Texas, so Quail season is pretty much over for me. In fact never started for me either. bang Season ended for me today also with a Snipe hunt. Posted the day live in the dog forum and dragged the day out for my 8 birds enjoying the nice weather before the front. I took a break with Dash for a season with him only getting some on the job training, but now it is time to think about getting him back on track with some more formal pointing dog training.

That's enough birds to make a bird dog.

Opening weekend isn't necessarily all that important to me because of the fact that it's usually too hot for the dogs and I can just shoot ducks that weekend. However on the last weekend my dad and I always go out out and have since I was about 5 years old. It's kind of like the last hoorah for us since we aren't that big into turkey hunting or predator hunting. Its a long time until september dove for me and even longer for my dad because he doesn't hunt anything but quail. I always have enjoyed the last day; it's a bitter sweet time.

Duck, a couple guys on the Pointing Dog Journal web site just returned to KS from a hunt in that area. Did really well. Hope you do as well
