>Counting Quail & Quail Dogs

>Wind swept Kansas will be in my dreams for the days to come! Day dreams of plum thickets, milo’d edges and Western Rag Weed and tumble weeds will consume my every thought. Red grass and whirring wings with staunch dogs on point. Hearing the coyotes bark and roosters cackle while we patiently sat waiting the chickens to return to the corn fields at dusk. Beat up dogs from giving their all and sore tired muscles from trying to keep up with hard-charging bird dogs! Kansas’s what quail hunters dream about.

  1. >Nice pics and great, hard-working dogs! Looks like you had a great time, Shawn. You must be putting even more miles on your truck than we did this fall.bestA+M+M+J

  2. >Shawn, I envy you and Matt. Wish I could have been there to experience the bounty and the fun. To paraphrase Fletch, the dogs were “Billy Jean King Brush Busters” Supreme!Andy

    >Is there a book you recommend on Amateur “in field” Veterinarianing? (I think I made up a new word)I would love a quick reference guide of some sort. Hope your season keeps going well. We are still waiting for the migration. December and still almost 50 degrees!

  4. >Chet…Thanks for the note. There is a good book by Randy Akers and Jim Fergus from Wilderness Press that I would recommend. You can get it from Amazon.Hope you have a great rest of the season too!Shawn
