Brother in law shot a doe last weekend with his bow at my place in Houston county. While tracking her I flushed a nice full grown woodcock. This was on October 28th. The earliest I have seen a woodcock at my place previously was around Thanksgiving. Really surprised me - especially considering the weather was extremely warm with no fronts up north to push them down.

Seen them, flushed them. Never hunted them.

If the quail population drops back I might.

As a matter of fact, had 3 fly right over the house at dusk, while cooking on the grill. Ol' Weimeraner got excited.

Did not see the first till week of Thanksgiving last year.

Beautiful girl. Can't wait for this year. Last year we got a decent idea of where to find them. Now, we just have to hit them!
