THE HUNT


The bird dog will track the quail by scent, alerting you when they locate them.

On command they will rush the covey of quail causing them to fly, which is your cue to shoot.

If you're proficient (or lucky) you'll have a bird/s by the end of the hunt.

If you use the services of our guides they can also assist you

 in "dressing" your bird to take with you.
