Article in the WSJ about quail hunting…

Nice to see some positive press for a shooting sport in a major U.S. paper. I always forget that some people have never done this kind of stuff before. Check out the recommended gear at the end. Funny.

The Thrill of the Hunt

“In a late December chill, I went quail hunting amid tall pines and waist-high broomsedge grass. My mission was to shoot 10-inch bobwhite quail, and then to hear a guide shout to the hunting dogs ahead of me: “Dead in here! Dead in here!” That command alerts the hounds to locate a downed bird…only in South Georgia’s fabled quail plantation belt the drawled order sounds more like, “Deh-ud-n-heah! Deh-ud-n-heah!”…

You can read all of it and see more pics here.

Here’s a slide show of pictures from the hunt.
