Agreed.... Undecided
Nothing for me this season, but we are heading out this arvo for a look.
The hills i hunt them got planted in pines 7 years ago.  California and browns present, but they get away much easier now with 15-20ft pine trees in the way.

I think the Quail hunters are the same group as the flytyers on here.  pretty active, but not heaps of posts... Cool

25's a bloody good effort. Well done.

Been hunting quail 2-3 times a week in canterbury lately. Average 3-5 per time but its hard work.

Need to improve my shooting though! Quick little buggers!

Yep that's a good effort. Cool
I have shot down your way once, and intend to get back there next season.
Is door knocking on likely properties still a go?
I see a lot more lifestyle development happening around the central Otgao area and assume its getting tougher.
what dog are you running?
