Rocky Gutierrez is probably the most learned scholar in the world of upland game birds and he's here to take us to school. From hunting birds around the world, to the behavior of valley quail, this guy knows his stuff. We'll talk habitat, strategy, tactics, gear, and why you can never find those buggers where they lit when you flushed the covey. We'll cover birds from Gambel's quail to capercaillie, mountain quail to rock ptarmigan.
Rocky's academic background is rich and varied, he is a professor emeritus at the Univ. of Minnesota, and his doctoral dissertation work started with a quail hunt!
We talk about what snacks you offer your dog during a hunt, and the Road Trip goes to Sin City for wild Gambel's quail on public land.
