Quail quest 2008

January 01, 2008 at 07:52 PM

A pheasant hunt near Prophetstown for Wednesday just got called off due to snow, blowing and lack of plowing. Shame that. We would have had some birds, I’m thinking.

As a result, Wednesday is now officially Quail Quest 2008. This is the day I will shoot a limit of quail (8 birds) or not come home. Yes, given my skills and the relative lack of quail, I am nervous. But we will start early in the AM and hope for the best. Full reports will come Wednesday PM. Unless we are still in search of birds.
