Hell Creek quail Hunted today - a real quail heaven

Postby meat hunter » Thu Feb 11, 2010 11:56 am

I pulled a permit for one of the Hell Creek quail hunts. Anyone hunted down there? I won't have a chance to go down there early to look around.

After hunting there today I gotta say it lives up to the reputation. Habitat is really great. Deer sign out the wazzoo, too. My wife and I were just looking around, barely opened the door of the truck, and jumped a covey.

I only got to hunt about an hour before my Brittany (Duece) pulled up lame. But he slammed a wild covey. My setter is in heat so she could not go. Duece handled the covey like a real pro. Locked up solid and stayed that way.

No doubt a person could limit out with an experienced dog and even decent shooting. But I lost my big stud Brittany last spring. He had NO style, was only a fair retriever, but he was great on cripples and a bird finding MACHINE.

Best quality of bird hunting I have had since leaving Nogales AZ.

If he has a bird dog.

My jip is in heat and my dog cut the big pad on his front foot. I am hoping the dog is ready Thursday, it is a small cut.
