My deer lease pulled a bait and switch on us. They leased to us year round. We told them we quail hunt and that was ok with them in April. Come October...yes this October he says he has leased the land to quail hunters from Arkansas for after deer season so we wouldn't be allowed to quail hunt after deer season. Soooo

i hunted it pretty hard and found this amazing section maybe 50acers of the 4000. There were 4 coveys in there..one of those had at least 40 birds in it maybe more. We found the 4 coveys and chased them around a bit. There were singles everywhere. It was easy pickings at that point. They held so well in the sage. There is a chain of ponds there but I'm not sure why so many quail wanted to be there. I felt a little guilty shooting that many. I've never tried that hard before. Felt that I should since I might only get two hunts out of the place before the Arkansas folks get it. The cover was nasty. But man the birds were so thick in there. Wish I had it for the rest of the season.

I wish I took pics...it was dark by the time I got back to camp and the game bag was in cooler which got rocked around so bad from the rough terrain. The birds were soaked. I started setting them up and it looked awful...night pic with soaked quail.

I ended up freezing half of them. It's to much. Next time I'll stick to 6 or so. I end up taking better care of them that way. I do have half in a brine right now. Garlic Jap and salt and pepper with butter milk.

Actually it's worth saying...I've never let them get drenched in ice water before but that was really nice for cleaning them. No feathers sticking to everything. They cleaned up fast and neatly.

If you have problems with feathers while cleaning, I put my skinned and gutted birds in a bucket of cold water and swish around. Majority of the feathers will float to the top

They even make a bird cleaning bucket now that you attach your water hose to and it floats the feathers off in a jiffy.

It's in Turkey which is right by Memphis. Might be the same guy.

What's really bad is the lease manager asked if we wouldn't mind leaving our feeders running through quail season for the quail hunters. Maybe in Ark it's legal to bait??

Did you have anything in writing about the lease going through Quail Season? I would be pretty upset if I were you
