The field hunts are exclusively by foot with one guide for every two hunters plus and one or two dogs. On a typical day you will encounter 6 to 8 coveys with each covey holding between 30 to 80 birds. Our daily limit is set at 10 quails per hunter. Additionally, we also limit the number of birds killed per covey to four per day. Since these are 100% wild birds our goal is to maintain a sustainable and health bird population.
The ranches that we hunt range in size from 20,000 to 80,000 acres. Several of these properties are only a 10 to 15 minute drive from the lodge. Each location has distinctly different and diverse terrain and each offers a variety of shooting angles. More importantly, you will be walking fresh coveys of wild birds that have experience very low hunting pressure. All of these untracked properties are loaded with wild quail that is guaranteed to create a hunting experience of a lifetime.
