Here are some pics from a trip out west. It was 75 degrees both Sun and Mon, and wind steady at 20mph+ each afternoon, but had fun chasing them around. Found 7 coveys Monday morn (bumped one up with the mule), decent dog work to boot. Buddies young brittany got porcupine broke (we hope) 10 minutes into its first wild quail turn. Fishing tourney next weekend so hanging up the boots for crocs. Fingers crossed for rain in May and the release of the eye worm vaccine.

Those pics were great. Makes me want to be out there. I noticed cholla cactus. You must have been pretty far west.

Every Elhew dog I have had is a big tail whipper, so as they get up there in age, I use these Lewis Tail Protectors. They are overpriced for what they are, but they work. I lose one a season. I do about a 3/8 loop of duct tape on the dogs tail as the base, then I overlap an inch of duct tape on top of that base loop and the other half on over the tail protector and they stay on pretty good.

I've always heard you snip off the end of those quills to pull them out easier, did you all try that or just pull them?
Great pics and sorry for that hard lesson learned.
