This quail hunting video kind of scares me…

I came across this video the other day on Youtube. The clip is from a quail preserve in Tennessee. From what I can see, the place puts hunters into lots of birds. It also has some dogs that really know how to find those birds and retrieve them.

But here’s what bothers me: The dogs are not steady to wing and shot (that means the dogs stay on point through the flush and the shot). When the birds go up, off go the dogs after them, and right into the area where the hunters are shooting. To me, that’s just too dangerous. What do you think?
