A furious flush of wild quail…

I love videos of pointing dogs and wild quail.

This is another from Hifive Kennels, and it features a setter named Ginny.

If you hang around the coverdog field trial circuit at all, you probably know Hifive. Located in Beulah, MI, they’ve been breeding, training, and trialing dogs for 20+ years, and they’ve produced a long list of great dogs.

Let’s go wild quail hunting in Texas ….

Here’s something I’m dying to do, and with quail numbers up, I think it’s time for me to head west and check it out. I’ve never hunted quail — wild or pen raised. From this video, the experience looks awesome. The video was produced by the Quail Coalition. They did a great job.

Wow – great video, awesome quail hunting at Sinkola…

Sinkola Plantation is one of Georgia’s legendary quail plantations. Located in Thomasville, it still offers wild bird hunts in the traditional Southern style. This video does a great job of capturing what that experience is all about.

Wild quail hunting at Sinkola Plantation…

There are very few places in the south where you can spend a day hunting wild quail (I should hunting and actually finding wild quail). This looks like one of them: “At Sinkola, we hunt quail the same way now as has been done here for the last century. The woods have been managed basically the same since the property was purchased at the beginning of the previous century. Through the use of annual prescribed fires, selective timbering and patch field planting, the habitat at Sinkola is a perfect haven for Bobwhites to thrive. ”
