A Buddy and I knocked down 16 quail today. Pretty rare in the show-me state. Moved 7 coveys on trapless ground. :)
Dogs worked as good as they ever have. A lot of fun.

Well done! I have never seen more than one or two at our place! My dad and uncles said they used to hunt them as kids but the habitat has changed quite a bit

Why the trapping diss? Can't just post you got some quail?
Unless the buddy you were hunting with was someone who is banned on this website. :LOL:

If you trapped it might even be better than it is now. Just another viewpoint.

Good looking dogs, congrats on the hunt!

It’s called a joke thus the smiley face. I can post whatever I want it is still a semi free post forum. Move along from my posts since they seem to trigger you.

What habitat enhancements and management have you done to help the quail so much? You need to do a farm tour post with many pictures.
It isn’t my farm but a friends. We have been hunting it for years. It has always been good but they recently renewed their CRP contract with a special quail management program. About 15 acers of footplots(milo and beans). Planting of warm season grasses and Forbes. Rotational burning and discing. It is just really good habitat.

There's a difference between joking and trolling.

If you read the last line I wrote, it congratulated you both on the hunt and complimented the dogs.
That really doesn't register as being "triggered" but oh well.

Have a good day. 👋

It’s only trolling if someone takes a bite.....
I just state the facts. You can have a great population of game birds with great habitat. That is indisputable. Thanks for the compliment. I was proud of them yesterday and made the work worthwhile.

It's only joking if it's funny....

You can have a great population of game birds using a comprehensive habitat improvement and trapping program, also indisputable. That's a fact too.

You can still have a good day 👋

Love it! That's some fun times! I know if we could ever get farmers on board with implementing a new management practice on the waterway systems instead of mowing them three times a year we would have millions of quail

I truly believe we need to go back to the farming practices of the 60's and 70's. The habitat in the pictures looks just like the farms I lived on and hunted when I was a teenager. We always had several coveys of quail and a lot of rabbits too. And no, I didn't trap back then. :eek:🤣. But we had Osage Orange fence rows for miles, un-mowed waterways, and lots of CRP.
The place I hunt now is all woods, hills, and rocks, no self-respecting quail would go anywhere near it but with a little habitat and trapping help it has become pretty dang good for deer and turkeys. (And trapping, Lol)
