Valley quail primer: where, when, how and why to hunt them from a 30-year career chasing the little buggers!

November 10, 2020

Inspired by a recent trip, I'd like to share some insights into these little magic-makers. Lore, legend, techniques and tactics, plus where to find them. Often a bonus bird when chasing chukars, they are often the salvation for footsore hunters an dogs on the third day of a long hunt, requiring less climbing and more opportunity.

Plus, some starting points to chase them throughout the west, and taking care of your dog's pads so he's ready to roll the next day.
