In the mid-1980s, I parked at the old Katy Golf Course in Denison and grabbed my clubs for a round of nine holes with a friend.

After grabbing the bag of irons and woods, I headed for the tee box. As I did, I reached back and slammed the door of my vehicle.

And much to my surprise, that’s when a small covey of quail decided to burst from the nearby cover, giving me a jolt of adrenaline as I excitedly watched the birds whir away.

Nearly 20 years later, I revisited the same spot. Except this time, the old golf course had been converted into soccer and football practice fields.

Good luck turning the demise around before it to late.

I ran my first pointer where the Texas Cowboys stadium now stands. The landowner at that time was named Harrington.

This picture was taken across the road from my house. On wild bobwhite quail. Lucky me. I had just gotten my first Garmin.

I still remember when Quail Unlimited shut down. Fingers crossed for Quail Forever.

William is a super good guy. We need to get the word out so people can learn about and hopefully enroll in the program.

I ran two bird dogs at the first Quail Forever trial on a plantation in Georgia.
