Where down-home hospitality, superb food, and challenging hunts create a special atmosphere for the most discriminating upland bird hunter.
Story and photography by Bill L. Olson
There are some that can remember the golden years of quail hunting in Texas. This was a time when ranches were still big and so were the covey rises. The time was as recent as the 60s and 70s.
Today, many of those same ranches have been subdivided into smaller parcels to accommodate urbanites or retirees that want to own a little piece in the country. Native grasses and cover were replaced with improved grasses, but the improvement didn’t benefit wildlife, instead it helped stifle its existence in favor of a growing cattle industry.
