Here are some pics from our hunt on the rolling prairie a few weeks ago. This is a good year for Hungarian Partridge. Not the covey counts you find on Texas quail but enough to keep our interest and make this a great hunt. I am thankful that we live in proximity to such beautiful, wild country!
The Hungarian Partridge is a fast flying covey bird. They don’t hold as well for a point like quail or pheasant but when they flush it is some fast shooting. Beautiful bird!
Wyatt wears the Stetson Open Road well.
What are we waiting for? Put the camera away and lets hunt!
Thankfully there is not a lot of this around, most of the country is open range. The lack of barbed wire and little cactus make this an ideal place for the dogs to run and hunt.
Ominous clouds rolling in make for a compelling picture.

Tex, closing in on a single.
This is uncle Billy’s place. He lived here with aunt Estelle for 47 years until he succumbed to a rabid skunk bite back in ’75.
You log a lot of miles following the dogs on these hunts.
Here is that single that Tex found.
Nice herd of goats! There are a couple of shooters in there for sure!
