: Excellent, well written post.
: I grew up in central Pa. (1950's and 60's)
: when we had huge populations of pheasants
: and a covey or two of quail about every half
: mile. As a kid I hunted with a collie mix
: and there were so many birds that she became
: quite accomplished at finding them. She had
: a good nose and at times would even flash
: point them.
: Now all the pheasant and quail are gone, no
: sense lamenting something we are never going
: to get back and I feel fortunate to have
: lived during those times.
