Re: Quail or pigeons in southern NM

I don't get on here much. I can help you with a few pigeons in SE NM. I ran into the same problem you have found. No one to buy pigeons from. My solution was to trap my own. Trapping supplies what my needs. 10-15 birds a week. Occasionally, I have a few in excess of that. Right in front of a cold fr...

Re: are Field Trialers afraid of wild birds?

Reminds me of Shadow Oak Bo circling that covey and working them back towards the handler in the 2014 Championship. Even the handler wondered where Bo was going. :) Judge definitely liked it. First time she did it I wondered what was going on. I just pulled up my horse and watched. It was a down hi...

Re: are Field Trialers afraid of wild birds?

Actually, that can set the stage for what will likely be one of the most awesome and memorable pieces of dog birdwork that is possible to witness. Here's the scenario: Dog that has stood there and watched a bird, or covey run out from under its point. When released, the dog does not trail the birds...

Re: How Often Should I Shoot a Quail or Pigeon

Found out about a new take on non verbal whoa,over lay whoa to the closing of a gun, walk up close the gun and go for the flush You can also make a slight hissing noise as you walk around to flush. Dog can and will hear it. No one else can. Or, hold your hand up like a traffic cop if you wish. The ...

Another book I liked was Dave Walkers. I was already using the West method and read it to see what the differences were between what I knew and what D Walker does.

Re: Anyone in AZ interested in helping a newbie?

You should be able to find someone who can point you towards the Az Pointing Dog Club. Good club, used to do training days.
Long time ago they were the AZ hunting dog club.
You will find folks in that group to help you.

Re: EP retrieving

Try kneeling as dog comes in with the bird. If that works gradually stand up as dog is coming in.

Re: Anyone having any luck in NM?

I have found a few covies with decent numbers of birds, but they are few, and far between. You really have to get out and wear out some leather to find them. I have only hunted the covies once and only shot about 1 or 2 birds out of them. The numbers last year were low, and are even lower this year...

Re: Anyone having any luck in NM?

I hunt mostly in southeast NM and with the dry weather we had this year the quail are not so plentiful this year. I almost dont even want to hunt them at all with these numbers I'm seeing around here. Are any other NM hunters having any more luck than me? Maybe my spots just arent good this year. I...
