    woodcock migration thread

    cover type Central Ky not far from ky river. cover was heavy brush at field edge of thick wooded area. large pond nearby. My formula is always near creeks or rivers but not on the creek or river. Doodles seem to like brushy fields nearby. This may be their resting ground cover, not sure.

    Finally killed a bird today

    Point Release Your point and release is really a good thing, much better than pressuring the bird and the bird getting up without you knowing when or where. Also, that bird is running most likley on your dog, causing alot of repositioning. Personally I would love a dog that would go ahead...

    Proper Quail Habitat

    Just returned from my first Texas Quail Hunt, boy, what an experience. If there is one thing I learned, it was proper habitat. I think Kentucky Biologists have it all wrong. Quail prefer grasses at knee height, period. Quail will roost in knee ht sparse grass before roosting in waist ht...

    Did anyone see many woodcock this year?

    Average Year I saw many Woodcock, most in heavy cover near streams or rivers. Maybe took 5-6 limits. I was never able to tell if they were resident birds or migratory birds. I was quail hunting not two weekends ago and jumped another 3

    Big time quail hunter thinking about grouse

    Honey Holes Roost Em, how bout we trade. Two quail honey holes for One grouse honey hole. Being he is the King and all. Just ask Upland. Trust Me is right, the 12 ga brings home more birds and is my gun of choice on the King just because of shot load, the cover is so dense the more shot the...

    Big time quail hunter thinking about grouse

    Let me settle this I cant believe that upland would even suggest that ringnecks have anything on the ky ruffed grouse. I guess those two flushes I put him on left him dazed and confused. And without a bird. Certainly he has not learned to respect the King. As far as what kind of armor to use I...
