Had a nice two day hunt west of Abilene last weekend. About 50/50 blues and bobs. Coveys not as big as last year, got into about 20 coveys both days. Good dog work including staying with running blues, finding wounded runners etc, surprising based on how dry/dusty it is out there. Getting time where we need some rain for next years crop.

Here is the video (click on the gear sign and pick 1080P and then click it to theater mode or full screen if it doesnt default there)

Blues were normal blues, better be quick and be ok with forty yard shots. I carried about 10 high brass #6 in my pants pocket on each turn and when a covey flush wild I would switch over.

I had similar results a few years ago with a friend who had a leases on the Nail ranch. It's somewhere west of Abalene.
