We pointed 11 decent size coveys, and ran up several more this afternoon on a quail coalition managed pasture. We only had two bird dogs and picked up after our last point. We ran up a decent size covey on the way to the gate. It flew into a bush just a few yards from the gate. It was a setup. We let it be. We simply didn't need anymore bird work.
I've seen coveys this size over the years, some even later, all the way up into dewberry season which is early May in my area. When does the attrition start? I've never gotten a good answer. I'm sending this link to Jim Willis. He was over there burning the pasture a month ago.

Quail hunting is like walking into, and out of a beautiful painting all day long. Gene Hill
