As my old dog and my young dog sleep peacefully cuddled around me on the motel bed, I realize that this Rooster Road Trip I saw the baton passed from an old dog to a young dog.
On Tuesday, Nov. 15, the second crew of Rooster Road Trip will focus their efforts on the WIHA (Walk-In Hunter Area) lands of northern Kansas in search of public lands pheasants and quail.
When combined with an incredible landscape and amazing wildlife, Oklahoma is truly a captivating place to chase bobwhite quail, particularly in a boom year like 2016.
Growing up as a kid in Minnesota, wild quail hunting wasn’t even on my radar. Fall hunting transitioned from grouse to ducks to pheasants to deer, and there wasn’t room for anything more.
The second leg of Rooster Road Trip launches in the great state of Oklahoma on November 14th where bobwhite quail numbers have witnessed another year of booming increases.
The second leg of Rooster Road Trip 2016 – Upland Nation, an annual digital showcase of upland hunting on public land habitat & access projects – starts November 14th.
