We Use Shotguns
Our quail hunting groups use shotguns—usually 20-gauge ones. Other options range from a 410 to a twelve-gauge.
Speaking of shooting, we have a quick safety tip for you. Never, ever shoot low across a field. It can result in a tragedy, hitting another person or dog. You should also keep your gun on safety mode, right until it is in the proper position and moment to shoot.
Binoculars: The Perfect Weapon
Binoculars can be the perfect weapon, especially when it comes to skittish quails. See them from afar with this helpful tool.
