    Second Trip to Eastern Oregon

    Got back from Eastern Oregon last night. Had a great trip minus getting both feet caught in some barbed wire that was half buried in the ground and half in a ball on the ground, fell on my gun with my finger under it on a rock and broke my finger. I thought the pictures of the pheasant feathers...

    If you have never hunted eastern Oregon for birds, you should!! It is well worth the trip.

    Eastern Oregon Trip #2

    Got back from Eastern Oregon last night. Had a great trip minus getting both feet caught in some barbed wire that was half buried in the ground and half in a ball on the ground. I thought the pictures of the pheasant feathers were absolutely beautiful. Lots of birds and great dog work and...

    What would you do?

    I would walk away and never hunt with that person again. Folks like that don't deserve any effort or reaction to their behavior.

    I made it to another hunting season.......

    Thanks, I just healed up from the last trip to Oregon and am headed back again. Going down to the Owyhee Mountains for some chukar and quail. Hopefully it doesn't snow to much more.

    Oh, I forgot the #1 most important tip that I see hunters mess up time and time again, is to run stealthy. Quietly close you truck doors, don't chit chat when you leave the truck, minimize your encouragement or communication with you dog and let your dog inform you as to what the birds are...

    Young birds

    I've seen the same thing in the west for chukar and California quail this year. I usually don't see that many birds that are that young this time of year. However, like others have said, it's a good problem to have.

    II have never known a pheasant not to run as far and fast as possible. I do have a couple of tips 1. Always have a blocker, at the end of the cover. 2. Always hunt towards a good break in cover, not toward infinite cover or toward property that you can't pinch them at a break 3. Never...

    I made it to another hunting season.......

    Well, I made my first hunting trip of the year. COVID put a serious, permanent hurt on my lungs but I made it three days and had a ball. Actually, I made it through 2 days and the third I was a permanent blocker. I am paying the price now but it was very worth the pain. Went to eastern...

    When is the best time to hunt quail?

    Honestly......The best time to hunt quail is anytime that I can find the time.

    When is the best time to hunt quail?

    In eastern Oregon the best time to hunt California quail is in January when it is below 10 degrees. Those little buggers covey up in larger coveys than early in the year and the shooting/adrenalin keeps you warm.

    I made it to another hunting season.......

    As hard as it is to believe another bird season is upon me. Huns, chukar, quail and pheasants beware. I have pent up blood lust that has been building for 9 months and a dog that loses her mind every time that I start sorting through my hunting gear.

    Quail hunting in south Idaho

    There is a good piece of "Access Yes" state owned property on the east side of the river on the south side of I-84 that has good quail numbers. They live along the strip of Russian Olives just above the river. That spot never fails to produce. Another spot is on the south side of CJ Strike...
