Only a few days remain in the quail season and Weatherford hunter Earl Stephenson dropped a line and a phtoto to report that he and hunting partner Kendall Johnson had a successful season in Custer County.
“We limited out on half of our dozen hunts and came close on most other days,” Stephenson said. “The dry and often windy conditions hindered dog work but did not stop the fun. The most consistent factor in finding birds was the presence of a milo field nearby.
“Plenty of birds remain for a good crop next year. We’re hoping for farmers to plant milo again!”
The last day of quail season is Feb. 15.
