This has been one of the best seasons on quail I’ve seen since the early 2000’s. Perfect weather conditions and good habitat are by far the most important factors in producing birds. I love to chase scaled quail on the short grass, high plains of Colorado…it is by far my favorite type of bird hunting. It’s taken me the better part of 17 years of study to figure out these birds and they have been worth the time and energy I’ve invested in their pursuit.
I have a few more trips planned for Kansas and father south to chase scaled quail. Hope you enjoy the photos.
See you on the prairie! Setter Feathers…

Great pictures! Is it nice to have quail somewhere other than Texas and Arizona . . . and much closer to home.
Birdhunter…thank you sir. I’ll bet you all do well in Kansas the end of the month. I’ll be there the same time. Have a great rest of your season.
Thanks! I hope so, I have not seen quail feathers floating in the air for quite some time. Is Mr Thompson hunting with you on this trip?
Gary was supposed to be going this weekend with me but his dog ate sugar-free gum and ended up in the hospital…thank heavens he’s ok!
Great photos. And great looking country. It looks so flat and humane compared to the nasty chukar hills I have been out in lately!
Jay much more civilized birds too! Haha
