If you keep your eyes open while you Quail hunt, you can see the roost piles that show where the coveys sleep.  Quail roost in a circle with there heads pointed out.  This allows them a 360 degree view of any on coming predators.  If one bird flushes, the whole covey goes.

What has always amazed me is how they roost in as little cover as possible, sometimes even on bare ground. – Steve

Introducing Your Pointing Dog Puppy to Birds

One of the most important things to get done early with a pointing dog is the introduction to birds.  I prefer to use pigeons.   They have a strong smell and are easy to see.  They will also stand their ground a little, so the pup has a chance to get close.

I really don’t care what the pup does the first time he sees or smells his first bird.  It’s nice if they are interested and do some flash pointing, but it isn’t really an indicator of the dogs potential.

What’s really fun is seeing your pup the second or third time he sees a pigeon and his fire is lit.
