I did Black Gap last year which is in the vicinity of Elephant Mountain. There were plenty of birds, but warm weather only allowed morning and evening hunts. Very rugged, very cool place. I would do it again. The terrain can be pretty rough on the dogs, mine seemed to handle it ok, just got too warm.

Did you end up using boots? Iím thinking about a trip down there the last weekend of the Texas season. When did you go down? I feel like elephant mountain and black gap are places not a lot of people pressure because of the location and terrain after talking to some folks. Blues are also a tough adversary.

We went in January. It would get lower 30's at night, and upper 70's for the high. I did not use dog boots.

I wouldn't say a lot, but enough. You will need to do quite a bit of driving, or you will wear out your dog.

I was thinking about Black Gap for blue quail and I might drive a car due to better gas mileage. How are the roads (at least the main road), how far can I get a car into the area?
I've hunted bobs but not blues- are they in the flatlands? Any stock tanks in the area they may mill around?

You will not get very far in a car. I saw 1 stock tank, there are a lot of guzzlers for water, and of course the Rio Grande. I saw blues where if was flat, I saw blues flush and run straight up a mountain. They do not hold until the covey is broken up.
