Missouri Quail Hunt
"Libby and I enjoyed a nice day hunting earlier on some prime Missouri habitat. We had to walk for our birds, but ended up finding 4 nice coveys and another which was scattered and wild." Kevin
Missouri offers both open and closed in quail shooting.
Quail singles are hunted typically offering more than six additional points after each covey flush.
Quail hunters typically bag one, rarely more than two, quail per covey to keep their dog motivated. A daily limit could easily be bagged from one covey. Most however hunt to enjoy their dog. Conserving coveys allowing them to be hunted over years. More important to have many coveys marked on maps making future hunts. Most Association quail pups get into more quail their first season than can be achieve anywhere. A four covey day with six or more singles points after covey flush gives plenty of dog work plus we do not have snakes or cactus.
