On another board there's a discussion going on what bird is the king of the uplands; most are saying that illegal immigrant the pheasant is King, one poor soul is saying the grouse. I and others have educated those poor souls that the Bob White Quail is obviously the King of the uplands.
Opinions?


There is time, and you must take it, to lay your hand on your dog's head as you walk past him lying on the floor or on his settle, time to talk with him, to remember with him, time to please him, time you can't buy back once he's gone" GBE

It depends on the metric you measure by. In the the south it is Gentleman Bob. My personal pick is Pheasant. Better dog work the way they run and the flush is unmatched.

Old books call it the Ruffed Grouse, but most Texans have never seen one. To the hunter, the king of the upland birds would be regional depending on what is most sought after in the region you hunt. Texas for sure the Bobwhite. Louisiana would be the Woodcock, Kansas I assume the Pheasant and so on.

For me, its all about the dog work, followed by an explosive group flush and so that means bobs. My close second is huns, they aren't as gentlemanly as bobs as far as walking right into them (bobs in a good year give you some of that anyway), but then you have the scenery of northern Wyoming, Montana, or North Dakota. All of those locales are a tad prettier than Guthrie or Big Spring etc. grin
