pointimgdogs hows your season going up there. I haven't spent much time after quail here to much work and the extra time was spent looking for the willey duck.
Have you ever woke up one day and said. Damn when does the season start.

Well i have hunted only valley quail and a few mountain quail. Number 8 seems to work the best for us. In a pinch i have used many differnt loads including steel duck loads but over all i think 8 is best.
A bad day hunting beats a good day at work
