Arizona Quail Hunting: Christmas Break

2 Comments

I found a morning to get out into the field and scare up some quail. The wind was out in full force and I was downright cold for the first hour or two. The windy conditions also made it difficult to locate any birds, but around 10 it subsided and provided me with the opportunity […]

I talked my hunting buddy, Austin, into skipping out on the first part of work to join me for a sweat-dripping walk through the desert in search of Arizona Gambel’s quail. After the first day of quail hunting, my hopes were very low, but with the chance to check out a new spot, I was […]
