Hunted Briscoe in McMullen Co. Very hot. Lots of tall grass. Hunted 2 hrs in am. and 2 in late pm each day. Moved 20+ coveys each day. The last 2 working puppies only.
Lots of immature birds, saw chicks still in down, lots of bumblebee sized birds. Several 40 bird coveys.

Where is your lease? We are on the West Mule Pasture of the Briscoe. It is on Cameron Rd. South from Fowlerton. Briscoe keeps a tremendous inventory of grass. Never seen the place overgrazed. In wet years the buffel grass is a problem.

Do they still have the baseball size gravel on the roads?

Howard County opening day moved 4 coveys in 2 hours. Too hot to hunt by 10am. Grass burrs by the bazillions. Gonna be tough on the dogs but seems to be a good many birds. Cover is excellent. Not going back until it cools off. A good frost would help some, a good freeze would be better, and a little snow would be great.

Cottle county, three hunters and no dogs. Killed 35 birds over the course of the weekend. Lost count of the coveys. Never seen so many birds in my life.

I believe that is southwest of us; closer to 6 24. We are on the western border of the county.

Glad you enjoyed it, for some reason the check wasn't in the mailbox.
