Songdog,
 Nice pictures!  Looking at them reminds me of giving my partner on Saturday crap, seven of my eight birds were males and the other a hen.  I told him I only shot males and the lone hen was a mistake, he killed five hens and one male and I told him that was bad conservation.  This was his first time Valley quail hunting so he kind of gave me a "are you serious" look.

Glad to see someone shot some quail on opener.  I went out Saturday to a place called Freemont Weir (A DFG Type C Wildlife area between Woodland and Knights Landing).  My dog and I spent three hours walking around to come up with zero birds.  Never saw or heard any birds.  One other guy was out there hunting and I heard him get off three shots and that was it.    

I am heading out tomorrow (Monday) to try again.  Maybe I will have some better luck.

songdog,

I thought the gun looked familiar, I'm gettin used to my 20 ga Ruger Red Label, so far so good.  Nice birds as well.  Check your messenger.

I've really grown to like that 28 ga.  I use it for just about everything except ducks and turkey.

I'm going to ID in about three weeks for pheasant, chukar, huns and grouse and I can't decide if I want to shoot that 28 ga or shoot a 20 ga 1100 Special Field (short barrel, English straight stock).  I've never felt undergunned with the 28 before but a once a year trip to ID would be a bummer if the birds all started flushing at 40 yards.  Then again, if that's the case, I can always borrow a 12 ga from the guys that I'm visiting.

Any votes for or against?
