    Quail hunting farm raised birds?

    has anybody ever hunted pen raised quail? I noticed a new farm opened up not to far from me Burks Quail Run and I was wondering if it is fairly realistic?

    Thanks,

    RD

    Most quail hunts in Texas are hunting pen raised. You'll have fun hunting them especially with a good set of dogs.

    I find it easier to just take them out of their pen and wring their neck :tongueout:

    They usually are released into a field.

    Did a Nebraska "farm raised" Pheasant hunt once.

    That was not hunting!

    Birds just got tossed out of a bag, and not one got away.

    Those who survived the initial volley of shot simply waddled about until a dog grabbed them.

    I'll never consider that "sport."
    It was what it was, back when it was good, and it ain't getting any better any time soon.

    I know some places use Bird "launchers" they hit a button as you walk up that tosses the bird into the air. Doesnt sound too fun to me. Might aswell go to a canned hunt(well I guess it is one).

    I wonder if you can get a shoulder stock for such device? Is it one bird at a time, or full auto? How would you load it? Dumb the birds in a hopper of so sort?

    Anyway....

    I want one!

    Quail are fun to shoot and great to eat. Doesn't really matter whether they are farm raised or not.

    As for pheasant, it's not a native species. Most places, they have been raised and turned loose.

    Hold Up.

    Are we talking about restocked quail. Or just picked up birds from a feed store, throw out the truck, and shot at?

    The secret with chickens....is you can catch them. Different tactic with quail.

    LMAO, there growing so many.....that they can have extra to load in that launcher. How awesome is that? I want a launcher for the kids!
