Yes. It was many years ago though.



I work hard, drink a little and hunt when I can.

Very very few around any more. I hear them when I am fishing around the north end of IDB state park every now and then.

I gave up hunting quail. I figure what few there are should just be let be. The whole situation just makes me sick. I would love to share with my kids one of the activities I so loved as a kid.

I do raise a few to eat from time to time...

Used to kill quite a few in the first couple years after the lake was created. But I have only take one single quail out there out of the last 6 years. And it was while hunting other small game. I can safely say there is no huntable population of quail on Ray Bob and never will be again. Corps land is just not managed in such a way for them to have any chance of long term success.

My great uncle owned a few hundred acres that is now underwater. We hunted there in the 60-70's and there were good birds then. It's a shame there are so few around now.

I think about 90% of us have the same story...I've got a few coveys on my property but I wouldn't call it a "huntable" population. Of course God only knows how many get poached out there...tresspassers burn me up.
