Terry, Jack and Roger, Pheasant and Quail Hunt

Terry Knebel set up a hunt for his buddies, Jack Levy and Roger Well. Terry brought out his experienced shorthair, Sadie and Roger his young lab, Timber to find some pheasant and quail covey in the Clubhouse Field. Always a lot of fun with Terry in the field, some nice dog work and some quality wingshooting as these three enjoy their last upland hunt of the season.

John and Burl, Quail Hunt

John Cavaletto came out with his pointer Burl to hunt some quail in the Clubhouse Field. I threw out a couple handfuls of quail off the tower in the field. The birds scatter around the field in random fashion and settle into their own spot of cover. Burl worked the field well, finding and pointing almost all the quail and John knocking them all down.

Chelsi, Brandon and Travis, Upland Bird Hunt

Chelsi Devall set up an upland bird hunt with her beau, Brandon Cox and father, Travis. I set out some pheasant, chukar and quail in the Clubhouse Field for Sadie, Zip and Patches to find. Great hunt, even with a little liquid, they came back with all their birds plus four extra pheasants left over from the youth hunt the day before.

Rich, Mark, Norval, Andy, Mark and David, Pheasant and Quail Hunt

Rich and Mark Reagan brought their friends, Mark and Andy Sugg, Norval Taliafero, and David Dintleman to hunt some pheasant and quail. I believe this was the first upland bird hunt for Mark Sugg and Norval and they had a great first hunt. Colton Wilkins along with Preacher and Bama did a nice job on the quail coveys and pheasant flushes.

Jacob and Matt, Upland Bird Hunt

Jacob Doedtman and Matt Harder came out for an upland bird hunt toward the end of last season. I got the honors to guide them around the Clubhouse Field. I brought out Sol and Ava to find the pheasant, chukar and quail. The pheasants were up and running, but the quail and chukar held tight for some good rises. Hildy and Mac came out to help find the birds that escaped on our first pass through the fields. I hope Jacob and Matt had as much fun as I did guiding them.

Brad, Nicholas, Dave, Derek and David, Pheasant and Chukar Hunt

Brad and Dave Compagni set up a hunt for the buddies, Nicholas McLaughlin and David and Derek Gibson. Travis Devall, came out with Patches, Zip and Sadie, to do the guiding and find the chukar and pheasant spread around the North Tinkerfarm Field. The five guns did a good job of clearing the field of the big birds and even came back with bonus quail.

QUGA Cumberland Trail Youth Pheasant Hunt

The Cumberland Trail Chapter of the Quail and Upland Game Alliance held its annual Youth Pheasant Hunt on March 10. The weather was great for the day and around 35 kids got to hunt some pheasants, shoot hundreds of clay pigeons and eat a bunch of hot dogs and chili. Lots of pheasants were harvested and few got away, but all the kids got a nice introduction to upland bird hunting.
