I feel your pain. I grew up on my grandparents dairy farm just outside Sulpher Springs. That's where I learned to hunt. Shot my first quail on that farm over my uncle's dogs. Grand dad was a squriel hunter. He used a single shot bolt .22 and shot shorts because they were cheaper.<p>It's hard on the soul to watch it all disapear. It get's harder all the time to find places to hunt wild quail. I don't know what's to blame fire ants, urban sprawl, changes in farming methods, sometimes just the weather. <p>Heck, I remember not long ago hunting quail just outside the city limits of Lewisville TX. We used to think that was out in the sticks. Now it's just a part of the Metro Mess that North Texas has become.
