A #StraightUpland #FaceFullofFeathers #friday -- when your #grouse is nearly as big as your #HuntingDog !
#tbt The Valley Quail, also known as the California Quail, arguably has the most beautiful plumage of all upland game birds. They offer small targets, as they rise together in coveys, which confuse and startle predators and hunters... and it works! They will often flush at about 30 yards plus away from a shooter or run through the arid hills and valleys, making them a challenging quarry for even the most seasoned upland hunter. 
Out on BLM land, I shot this single male last season  after I busted up a midsized covey. Instead of chasing after the singles, which flew in all directions. I sat low and called for about 15 minutes. I saw him running across a hill at about 25 yards or so with a hen quail. I sat up and jogged towards them, hoping to get them to flush and boy did they! Just in different directions! I shot at the cockbird first and folded him as he flushed to the left. I took aim at the hen flying to the right and my Ithaca 37 barked out two more rounds as she started veering out of range. Miss and a miss.

"There they go"! Busted this covey of valley quail while out hiking this weekend. About 20 plus birds in this covey. Lots of young birds! It's looking good out there! Have you scouted out any areas before the season starts? Get out there! #UplandJitsu #TheArtofUplandHunting

Bottom Ejector. A nice little design on the Ithaca 37 that prevents debris or weather related conditions to enter and affect operation. This design also makes the Ithaca 37 a favorite for left-handed shooters who suffer from shells being expended across their face with other shotguns that are designed solely for right-handed shooters.

This #tbt goes way back! This was a turning point for me in my life when I started becoming more of a dedicated upland hunter. Circa 2004 (?). Check out that old Hopkins & Allen! Choked full/full, 30 inch damascus twist barrels and loaded with 2.5 inch black powder shells. Headed out to a preserve and learned a lot that day! #UplandJitsu #TheArtOfUplandHunting

Many hunters use # 7-1/2 or even # 8 shot for quail. Over the course of hunting wild western quail a few decades, I have learned that using # 6's throughout the entire season do a better job of folding and putting down these hardy birds. As a hunter who does not have the convenience of using a dog, I want to be sure I limit cripples as much as possible. I don't want one running into the crags of boulders or heavy brush where I cannot get to it. People ask if there is much meat damage... I have yet to experience that. #UplandJitsu #TheArtofUplandHunting

The wear and tear on a true field gun... Sometimes I wonder what stories this old Ithaca 37 (1941) would tell me if it could. Prepping this old gal for quail season. Ready to create some new stories and memories this fall! #UplandJitsu #TheArtofUplandHunting

Many thanks to @wsisports and @hunt_birdz for this nifty made in the USA Hypertech Bamboo shirt! It came in handy today during my wildlife corridor project while setting up cameras today. Super comfortable and kept me cool while hiking out. Check them out! #UplandJitsu #TheArtofUplandHunting #wsisportswear #huntbirdz #WildlifeManagement #UrbanWildlife #wildlifebiology #wildlifecorridor #orangecounty #CaliforniaWildlife
Urban Dove. Good to see successful nesting going on around town! Seems this little area under the overhang of my roof gets a pair every season.

Worthy is the King who conquered the grave! He is RISEN! Happy Easter, everyone! 
Check out this gorgeous country! I stopped here and just admired the beauty that God created. Last time I was here, I had just found out my wife was pregnant! I reflected on all that has come since then and all that has changed. I have a wonderful and supportive wife who I am very proud of who makes positive impacts in people's lives. I have a very healthy and spunky daughter running around who surprises me and humbles me with her love and generosity. I have since then had opportunities to pursue my passions and share my experiences with others. Now I get to serve and give back and that has made a wonderfully unexpected impact in my life! All that and I get to hunt in beautiful places like this! God is good!

@Regrann from @cameroningle1104 -  As I sit on break at work, my mind often drifts to time spent afield with my wife and our dog. I seldom find as much joy and peace in other actions. To see our dog work, to talk, and to see true dedication to life and the outdoors, bird hunting is the ultimate test. To see your wife walk in step with you in awful weather, and to see your dog perform feats of pure magic in 60mph wind is true love and dedication. Upland is the life for me. #uplandhunting #uplandlowlife #uplandjitsu #birdhunting #birddogoftheday #bird #hunt #hunter #huntress #dogdad #bestia #art #photography #vegan #basspro #orvis #lcsupply #cabelas #cabelascanine #workingdog - #regrann

It's beginning to look a lot like Turkey Season everywhere I go! Getting ready for the big game of Upland Birds. That elusive turkey. This is my second try at spring turkey on California public land. It's a mad house out there on opening day. Figure I will wait a couple weeks after the opener and although my chances to bag ol' Tom dramatically fall, I will at least have a few spots to myself. Lord willing I can be patient enough to call one in! #uplandjitsu

Quail Country. 
Sounds like we are getting some rain again later this week! I like what I saw on the season closer. If things stay up for these quail and we get more rain this year we should have a great next season! We need to continue fighting for our public lands in the mean time!

Not sure if this was the reason for my poor shooting yesterday! Not even sure when this happened! Must have banged it somewhere... it is completely bent like something hit it. Yikes. Love the Tru-glo beacuse they resemble the old vintage Raybar sights but might get an ivory bead to replace it.... something classy.  #uplandjitsu #TheArtofUplandHunting #uplandhunting #quailhunting #coveybuster #uplandtradition #uplandlowlife #projectupland #uplandelite #wingshooting #quailforever #ithacashotgun #filsonlife #filson #orvishunting #hunting #cabelas #bassproshop #basspro #ithaca37

Well, another season comes and goes. Saw a 50+ covey of quail off in the distance and moved as quick as could downhill to intercept. As they broke I had 11 opportunities to shoot singles. I missed everyone! Once again these birds humble me. That is real hunting. You don't always fill your game bag and sometimes you miss... a lot! If it was easy, they would call it grocery shopping. Had fun chasing birds up and down those gnarly canyons. They seem to be pretty healthy and in good numbers. Lots of green weeds popping up. Let's hope we get more rain! I am thankful for a very understanding wife and I am thankful God has blessed me with the health to get out another season. Bag limits are not everything. I am just happy I saw some birds today!

Upland Season is winding down. The end of the season is less than two weeks away. One can only hope that the rain will continue here in California and help give us a great next season! In the meantime prepping the new toy, a Remington 870 Express. Stocking up on #5's, T, and #4 Buckshot. Turkey and coyotes, beware. #uplandjitsu #predatorhunting #turkeyhunting #coyotehunting #springturkeyseason #shotgun #remington870 #hunt_ca #thunderchicken #turkeyseason #predatorcontrol #uplandhunting #quailhunting #TheArtofUplandHunting #predatorquest

This season is flying by! Anyone planning on chasing some birds this holiday? It has been a rough and busy month and have not been out since last month, so I would like to get out just before Christmas (around my birthday) or just after. We'll see.
