    Went this weekend also. Didn't have as much luck as yourself but it sure was fun watching the dogs work. BTW Man, I need to get me one of those Benelli's. My 11-87 jammed all weekend.

    NMglocker what the bag limit on quail in you're neck of the woods?


    Quail conveys have really dropped pretty much all across the lower south and south east parts of the USA.

    Contry fried quail sounds very interesting.

    I learned the finer points of shooting by popping quail with a .410, and not using dogs so they would take off nearly under my feet and quickly excelerate to 20+mph. Great fun!

    Bag limit is 15 day, 30 in possesion.
    I have limited out both days i've been out hunting.
    Every covey i've been into has had 20+ birds in it.
    We are over run with quail this year, I know we have had at least three hatchings this year.
    They are all Blues though, so you better strap on your running shoes.
