Took my 11 year old boy out for his first ever quail hunt saturday for his birthday. I had a pretty good spot where I had seen quail almost every single day this summer right up through the deer hunt. We went all over, not a track. Finally it was time to head back, we left the property and within a quarter of a mile we come around a corner and see this in the middle of the road.

He got a good lesson in "those stupid birds outsmarting us!". Not a place where you can hunt, we slowly drove past with them standing 6ft off the side of the road, taunting. He was so excited, too bad we couldnt get into them. I dont know if its the same group I saw previous and the weather moved them lower, or if it was just a different group we happened across.

Either way we got to spend some good quality time together.

sounds to me like those quail arent so stupid after all!!!!
great to hear you are getting the young fella out, a hunt with Dad is worth more than any ol quail anyway, the birds you do get are just a bonus. hmmm I wonder if the curse of the Quail has moved off stovie and settled somewhere else???

Seems like the quails up your way have been talking to the quails down Stoveys way mate...no two ways about it...they are cheeky buggers, and cluey to go with it as well. Stovey's suggestion was a good one mate...an opportunity for your young fella to get up close and personal with the little buggers, learn the sounds they make and they way they move about.

As the others have said mate...getting birds is a bonus to being out in the bush and spending a quality day with your boy. At least you know where they are now and maybe next outing you can scare them back up onto the property that you hunt.

Cheers, Vince

I was out delivering papers n pamphlets with the wife this morning and a small covey (6-8 birds) were spotted up a fellas driveway for the secound time, yes this is a small town and yes the section does back on to the river but hells bells batman those birds are only 25 yrds from a busy road and businesses, not to mention all the cats n dogs in town, I will try to get a photo if I get another day off.
