"This ain't deer hunting," as one official at the Georgia DNR said. True. It's a gentleman's sport, and that means doing it on a humane schedule. There's no need to rise at the crack of dawn or sit with your teeth chattering atop a wobbly stand. Still, with bobwhite numbers so low, scouting is necessary. If you find an area dense with coveys, you're in luck. Often, quail will hold in the same covey-as long as it remains undisturbed-for extended periods of time. This is why deer hunting is a great way to scout for good habitat. If you happen across thick weeds, brush, hedges or overgrown ditches on your way to the deer stand on a Georgia WMA, make a mental note. It's likely to hold a bird or two.
