We call this place, "the flat spot", because as crazy as it sounds to a flatlander, this is one of the flattest spots we chase quail in this area. I personally find this spot beautiful. While most would look at this place as a barren, dry, good place to hide a body, I find it rather lush , always willing to give up a few quail if we walk long and hard enough.
It didn't take to long for us to find our first small group of birds, and as expected, they jumped the road and found the absolute steepest place in the area. chasing quail uphill is not only "fun", its a good barometer of your heart health, today I passed with flying colors. Scotty is seen here, just catching his breath after the mini sprint uphill. its amazing what these little birds can actually hold in, and I wish I would have had Dottie out here, it would have made for some great pointing opportunities, its been a while since I've seen them hold this tight. We had less than stellar shooting a a group, but I did manage to kill four birds with my first four shots.
