Report from the field - Georgia quail

My friend Joe Augustine filed a report of his late season hunt in the piney woods of SW Georgia. Joe has a small troop of setters that live with him in his (apparently spacious) apartment in downtown Manhattan. You can keep bird dogs in the City. Joe's setters were bred by Dan Catalano of Bayview Setters. Here is some eye candy:

Quail in hand. What could be better than this?

Looks great! I'd bet it wasn't public land though?

That top photo is fantastic - very iconic to what you think of when you envision shooting quail over a pointer. Nice!

Perhaps we could talk Joe into sponsering us next year!

I love the picture of Ranger with the bird and the last picture as well. Great photos.
