Hey Jim, thanks for the good report. The birds must be scattered, or I just didn't do enough scouting, 'cuz I have only ran into one decent covey thus far. Maybe I was spoiled from the last time that I got out and hunted, that was the incredible '05 season where I could throw rocks at the birds and come home with a full limit. Doesn't really matter though, I am having a good time anyway and now that I have the free time to really get out I am sure I will find 'em sooner or later. I live in Apple Valley so it really wouldn't hurt my feelings if you PM'ed me with a general area to look in that is eihter near AV or Barstow. When I get off duty from the BFD in the mornings I usually head to somewhere in that neck of the woods.
I have been reading your articles in the paper for years and really like what you put out. I can't wait for this years Christmas catalogue... Always the finest, top of the line equipment. As a matter of fact maybe you could share it with some of the boys on here.
Anyway, I hope to see you around and keep up the good work.
