I have been hunting twice up in Young county in recent weeks. I have seen and worked wild birds (as many as 3 bevies) real early in the morning between 7:30 a.m. and 9 a.m. After that, we have been pretty much been just running dogs. I have not pointed a bird in the afternoon since late November.

I guess it all means the same. Dad always said Coveys and I say bunches. Guess its just what County you are in. Anyhow there are not many of them left and thats a shame. I just want to cry.

Ran dogs for 4 hours Saturday morning and found 4 nice coveys, and a friend also found 4 coveys Saturday morning. We both ran for 3+ hours Saturday afternoon and he found 2 coveys and I found none. He also ran Sunday morning and found 1 covey.
None were the same coveys.

It was real nice that my year old pup got to smell a wild bird.
We had some ok dog work considering how long it had been since my dogs had had a chance to work real birds. Sure do not kill many with blank pistols.


Last year he ran for 2 days and did not find a bird.

I an encouraged because cover is good, covey size was at least 10 birds, and birds flew real well. The pastures are showing little weeds coming up. I never ran last year and he ran 2 days and never saw a bird.

With a little luck we might be on the upswing. I certainly hope so. We have not hunted birds since December 2010 and lost 15000 acres to fire in 2011. The areas that burned looks better but we still need a good wet year.


Whiskey and steaks were excellent.

If it isn't white it is not a birddog.

Lying is lying. Don't bitch about one doing it and condone another. That's called hypocrisy.

5th and final outing of the season was today. nothing in 3 hours. In my 5 trips my covey counts were 0-2-2-1-0. I probably averaged a covey every 3-4 hours of hunting. Pretty bad. Even last season, after that extended dry spell, I averaged a covey every 1-2 hours. My best day last season was 6 coveys.
