Quail & Pheasant
Quail & Pheasant
An average day of quail hunting with Rush Creek usually consists of approximately six hours of hunting behind our dogs. On an average year, we move between 8-12 coveys of birds a day. One of the key factors to a good quail hunt is good dog work. Without good dogs, no matter how many quail there are, you are unlikely to have much success. It is also important to remember that in this country, we periodically experience hot, dry, and windy days, that are not conducive for good scent conditions so the performance of your own dogs will be greatly effected no matter how experienced they are. It is also important to remember that dogs not used to working in a dry, arid environment rarely perform as well as dogs that are native and use to these types of conditions. Please feel free to bring your own dogs, but be prepared that their full capabilities might be hindered depending on conditions.
Quail hunts are available on a fully-guided basis using our vehicles, guides, and dogs. Food and lodging is also available. For semi-guided hunts, you provide the dogs & vehicles while our guides will show you the property boundaries for the hunts.
