One of the places that I hunt is a small 80 acre farm. There is one covey of birds that hangs around the place that I've gotten up about 4 times this year, always in the afternoon. The thing is that these are not the gentlemen Bobs that sit and wait for you to flush them. If you get 10 seconds of hold after a point you are doing good. The cover isn't sparse where we are at, its a mixture of pasture, native grasses, plum thickets, and cedar clumps. There aren't any other hunters that I'm aware of that push these birds, so my question for some of you super experienced quail hunters out there, is this common?
