How Far East in Texas have you found huntable quail populations?

I'd think it would depend on how far north you are and only getting better farther north you get.

I quail hunt all over the Crosstimbers and Rolling Plains areas of North Texas. I have thought about this before and in my mind, the line is at or around US HWY 183.

I live right on the edge in my part of the state. I would say North of I-20 you can hunt quail as Far East as the Albany, Throckmorton, area. I agree with the Hwy 183 line.

quote=bill oxner]We found 17 coveys this afternoon in a little under a 3 hours. This is a new record for this pasture. We went out for an hour yesterday and found 4 coveys. Here are a couple of pictures from yesterday. This is Yeats with his front foot up. Payson is doing the shooting. Birds got up like popcorn from this bush.



We were headed to the windmill which you can see in the upper right hand corner, but birds got in our way;



Clifford had a pretty hot hand this afternoon. I remember him pointing 5 coveys. This is one of the;



This was a Garmin find;



Clifford again, with Cracker literally doing the honoring.




Does this beat football, or what?






This is ET whth his new free coat. I told him that the coat was worth about what he paid for it. OOPS!! I hunted with him all afternoon and just noticed his necktie;




Cracker is my wife's little baby. She keeps asking why I don't include more pictures of cracker. This is for you Paulette;



Martini time. Let's pick them up;





Tomorrow is a holiday. We may go back to get Yeats on a couple more coveys.

Back before the hurricane that flooded Beaumont, Winnie and smith point I hunted Quail between Winnie and High Island back towards Smith Point. I haven't been back since it flooded.

I certainly assumed he was referring to the shotgun as well. I think someone pulled a funny.
