I am hoping I was able to load this picture correctly from our hunt this past Monday north of San Angelo. Average hunter age 81, 10 coveys found, 22 bobs cleaned on Monday. Listening to these two old goats brag about shooting 1,000 percent for the day ( both went 1 for 1 in the shooting Monday!) over a nice meal Monday night was priceless. We had decent luck Tuesday and Wed. morning despite the drought like conditions. That whole country needs moisture real bad. We did not find a single covey of blues in 2.5 days of hunting. My brother went back around Thanksgiving on the same lease and found about a dozen coveys of blues so I am not sure if they just moved to a nearby ranch or went into hiding. I checked about 10 birds for eye worms and did not find any worms in the ones I cleaned. Hope to get back out again in late Feb.

I'd love to sit around at night and listen to the stories.

Are eye worms visible with the naked eye?

You can check for eye worms with this method. There are probably other methods I have not read about. I have seen quail with a load of them before.

That's awesome glad to see em out doing what they love.

When I was in Kansas last week there were two old salts that had a limit of late season pheasent. Sure they hunted private farms but I was still impressed since I just walked over 10 miles for one bird and they had 8.
One thing they said was it's not how many fields you hit...it's how you hunt the fields that matters.

It's always nice to learn from guys like that.
