Hunting: Quail Girl

Wensley Guthrie was only eight years old when we met her eight years ago, at a Texas Parks and Wildlife Expo.

We still love her story about quail with her father David. A half lifetime ago, she told us about her role on their quail hunting trips.

51—It was really fun, but my dog didn’t get to come because he’s scared of everything. We left in the afternoon and got there at night time. In the morning we got up real early and went quail hunting. There are two kinds; I think I remember one of the names, and that is the Bobwhite. They’re not really little but they’re about medium size and they like to hide in the bushes, and my daddy shoots them, and if they fall in the bushes I have to go get them. And I think that they should switch dove season and quail season, because when we went dove hunting there were more quail than dove. And then when we went quail hunting there were more dove than quail.

Well, it’s eight years later and sorry to tell you Wensley – the seasons have not changed.

That’s our show… we receive support from the Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration Program… funded by your purchase of fishing and hunting equipment and motor boat fuels.
