Well guys, we just got back from Arizona chasing the ghost of the desert, the Gambles Quail.  If you have never hunted them they are the Chukar of the open desert.  The season opened friday morning with good shooting and some coveys over 100 birds.  We had 65 birds on friday for 6 of us and 25 on saturday, not for lack of birds but missed opportunity and poor orginaztion on behalf of the hunters.

Here are some pics of the first 52 Quail the four of 6 of us shot on opening day:
