    Quail hunting with a friend who has two well trained pointing dog. One is setter and the the other is a pointer. They work together as a pair and honor each other and are a pleasure to watch them work in the field.

    After cleaning the quail they were placed in a sauce pan and covered with a mixture of soup and seasoning, then to the oven at 275 for three hours. This was just right for fall off the bone tender. The smothered quail gravy brought this meal all


    Always good to get out in the field and enjoy what nature has to offer. Need to do more of this.

    Hope you enjoy.


    It is hard to see but the pointer has located a quail and the setter in the background is honoring.

    Pointer has another quail and my friend (owner) is moving in.

    Setter is showing great form on a bird

    Fire ants are a problem for sure. Having lived in TX a number of years ago I know the problem.

    Thanks for the point.
