Terry Knebel came out with his two friends Dave Schumacher and Jim Zupanci for an early season quail hunt. Terry and Dave both needed to get their dogs on some birds before the wild bird season opens this coming weekend. Sadie, Terry’s German Shorthair, and Dan, Dave’s Brittany, had a blast finding and pointing quail around the north end of the Tinkerfarm field. We started early to avoid the heat from the record high temperature of 86 later in the day. The guys even got a surprise to start out with a rooster pheasant being flushed from the first point.
