We finally did it!! First California quail!
I’m up North at my parents house for the holidays and the fields here have no bunnies in them, so Kai had no choice but to either chase quail or jacks or go home hungry. He chose to chase ;) We found a covey along a steep hillside and had at least 15 chases before he finally connected. He would chase and pin, chase and pin, run around in the bush like a coopers hawk, chase and pin again. It was great to see him so enthusiastic for a change! (it only took two years lol) Thanksgiving came a day early for us :)
