I've got a young GSP pup that is getting trained up on pigeons and planted quail, but I keep hearing that it is crucial for a dog to get wild bird exposure that first year in order to make a decent dog. I'm relatively new to upland hunting, but I plan on making at least a half dozen trips this Jan/Feb. I can't afford a lease or a club, so I'm looking to get out on some public land. For this first year I'd really like to stay somewhat close. Where is the best place to go within a few hrs of the metroplex? I keep getting conflicting advice. My plan is to hit The texas panhandle(Matador) and SW Oklahoma (Black Kettle). Maybe even far west Texas????? Just wanting to get him on some birds. I know Kansas and New Mexico are supposed to be amazing, but its a little far for this first season. Where should I go?

Matador maybe fine. Don't waist your time on the small public tracks around Post TX.


God Bless and Semper FI

Just got back last night from Matador yesterday. Hunted Saturday And 1/2 day Sunday. Jumped 4 coveys. Anywhere from 10 to 20 birds. Horrible scenting conditions. But saw alot of whitetail and mule deer and some wild turkeys.
