Never seen one before. I've seen white grackles, white mockingbirds, white cardinals. But never a white blue quail. How about ya'll?

It's a first for me. Thanks for posting. Did you shoot it on the ground?

I'd have shot it roosting. But I couldn't hunt all weekend. My friend shot it flying over a bush after I left yesterday. He thought he missed it.

Rusty is a real purist when it comes to quail hunting. His friend said don't shoot it while its running on the ground. He replied,"I'm no. I'm going to wait until it stops."

I hold a grudge against blue quail. We have a long tumultuous history. I'd use claymores on them if I could.

Leucistic. Not albino since it had dark eyes.

Can't find any pics of leucistic blue quail. Plenty of gambels though.

It's getting mounted. With a couple of normal blue quail. Rare bird indeed.

I got my mule deer off his ranch. I guess good karma paid him back.

I had to leave and wasn't there when he killed it. He texted me the pic and I replied you're going to mount it right? He said "no, we ate it, wanted to see if it tasted the same as normal blues"....
