We finally got around to hunting the blues up top at my buddy's place. We don't usually hunt up there but some people were deer hunting the creek on his place this weekend so we figured we would give it a shot. It turned out to be pretty successful and a whole lot of fun!

We had some great dog work. There were still a few patches of snow on the ground and not a whole lot of wind, so the scenting conditions were great. They would point the covey about 50 yards before we ever saw the birds (unless we saw them running down the road or on a gas well pad) and then really do well after the initial flush. These birds hadn't been hunted in probably 15 years and didn't fly very far before sitting back down and sticking tight.

Yep many many times every time I take hunters Can't hunt blues with a pointing dog is just a myth. Unless your hunting poor overgrazed country

This is my first year to find blue quail and I must say I have been pleasantly surprised. Once they get scattered we have enjoyed some pretty good dog work. The blue's are a welcomed addition to the scenery for us.

Love hunting Blues. Of course I prefer to hunt them in the snow when they don;t tend to run as much!

I might take more pictures of them when I get older, but right now I'm more focused on taking in the moment than holding an electronic device and watching through a lens.
