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.

Poor Jenny thinks we are going every time I load the stuff to go deer hunting.

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!

Thank you! She's my baby - I admit I can get a little obnoxious posting pics of her this time of year. smile

That is a good looking shorthair! How old is she?

I've never even seen a woodcock, in Texas or anywhere else for that matter. Sounds like the guys that hunt them a lot have quite a love affair with them. And don't apologize for pictures, we all suffer from the same ailments!

Now that I know where Houston Co. is, guess I'll take my pup next time I get down to my dad's place in Tyler. Would love to at least see one.
