Kansas Quail Hunting Spot

Late January Kansas quail hunting on an unusually warm winter. One gun was hunting. His buddy taking pictures. They are seasoned hunters that enjoy their dogs more than quail in the bag. They also have fun putting each other “under pressure” by being on camera. The end result is more laughs during and after the hunt. The kind of enjoyment that is better than common fun, shared well after the hunt often in easy chairs relaxing with refreshments.

These pictures cover but a short time on one field.

This was the beginning of late season wild quail hunting trip. Kelly is pointing a covey of 12 to 15 birds that escaped the covey rise.

Libby cannot be seen, but she is in the trees to the left of Kevin and Kelly on point. She has a large covey pointed but they ran and Kelly picked them up and has them pinned down in the grass next to the cedars. Good team work!

The covey exploded out of the grass. Kevin dropped one off the covey rise and Kelly made a smooth retrieve.

The quail flew down a ditch that led to a small patch of timber. Libby has a couple of scattered singles pointed on the edge of the timber and Kelly is honoring her point.

Libby has always been an intense pointing and retrieving dog. She’s had some physical problems this year, but it appears she’s in the process of recovery. There were 2 or 3 in this photo that ran and escaped through the trees.
