We will be hunting quail soon, here in north Georgia on private land which is stocked with pen raised birds. The third week of January will be woodcock time here in Georgia; we should have the flight birds from up north at the Piedmont WMA.

Re: Best state for bird hunting?

I agree,western and northern Maine has very good Grouse and woodcock hunting, if you go late October the leaves are mostly off the trees and birds are much easer to see when Flushed, unless your a meat hunter and shoot them on tghe ground.

I have used a Browning 5-A light 12 for skeet and sporting clay's and all my hunting for many years and can't tell you how many thousand of rounds went through it and never had a problem of any sort. I just change the chokes according to need. Most of my hunting is grouse and woodcock in heavy cover.
