: I hope you guys know how lucky you are.
: When I was hunting in southern Ohio with
: Vince Golden and Bill Hantzleman back in the
: day, 10-12 coveys in 6-8 hours was tops. I
: don't remember ever seeing 15! And we would
: use two or three sets of dogs.
During the drought we norm found about a covey a hour.We had timely rain come and the norn is about two or three coveys per hour.This is prairie grassland hunting which I prefer over farm edge type country.A dog has to reach out and cover a bit of country running hunting and handling.
Years back especially during the 60es birds were abundant.When we found 43 coveys on Plum Thicket farm the norn same place was 10 to 15.That place was saturated with birds.All Bobs and no Blues.
