When quail don’t fly

HUNTING -- I was pretty confident going into today's hunt.  I had a shotgun and an English setter that covers real estate like the wind.

But the valley quail didn't fly.

Instead, they challenged us to a footrace through the Lincoln County sagebrush.

The birds won, by a mile.
