Must-Have Quail Hunting Gear

posted on October 10, 2016

Editor's Note: Field Editor Ron Spomer recently used all of the gear described below on an upland hunt in the southwest. Read that story here.

CZ’s Quail Gun
The CZ Super Scroll Combo Set is a 6.7-pound, two-barrel, 10-choke, ejector boxlock over/under built around a 20-gauge frame. The extra weight of the 20-gauge frame combined with the 30-inch 28-gauge barrels resulted in the sweetest follow-through and deadliest quail shooting I’ve ever accomplished with a 28-gauge.

Dog Gear for Quail Fields
Garmin’s Astro 430 tracks as many as 20 dogs at a time with ranges up to 9 miles using GPS/GLONASS technology. Mark coveys, waypoints and routes. Mapping screen shows where each dog has hunted, saving you time and steps.

The D.T. Systems R.A.P.T. 1450 Upland Beeper collar is waterproof with vibration, nick, continuous and beeper modes. Numbered tone identifiers let you hear, identify and control three dogs on point up to 1,400 yards away under ideal conditions.
