Scaled Quail in a Gale

Today was the opening of Colorado’s quail and pheasant season.  It was a beautiful day on the eastern prairies…minus the 50 mph wind.  The dogs performed near flawless…Gary’s Lilly had a great find which was her first point on wild birds.  The prairies are dry and it was very evident today…the southeast is parched.


Here are a few photos from the day afield.   Hope you all got out today as well!

    My husband and I were doing research on the Comanche grasslands so we could try to hunt public land in Colorado for quail. Through tons of searches on the Internet, we came across your website and really enjoyed all your posts! Wondering if anybody could directed us to a specific location in Colorado to hunt quail on public land? We have one dog. Thanks for any help!

      Jamie thanks for the note. I recently wrote an article on scaled quail for quail forever…I’ve heard it was published in pheasants forever’s magazine this past week. I haven’t seen it as of yet. Anywhere south of Lamar on the grasslands has birds…some places better than others. Also there’s walk in land down there that is good. I also have hunted so of la junta and down well where there is stands of dense cholla cactus.
