Schmidt Double T Ranches brings you the best guided quail hunts for your group event. Quail Hunting is thrilling, challenging, and amazing to watch, which is why we have a great time bringing you this adventure. Purchase flight ready birds, or hunt with one of our experienced and helpful guides. Our hunting guides will be there for you the entire hunt, and enjoy helping hunters of all skill levels.
The Bobwhite quail fly undetected, which brings the challenge and the thrill to the hunter. To offset their camouflage, we have a beautiful set of gun dogs. We use sociable and happy English Pointers and English Cockers for Flushing & Retrieving- . We have a group of dogs that we rotate so as to keep them rested and happy. Our pointers run into the areas that our quail camouflage themselves in, exposing the quail to our English Cockers. The cockers run to the area, releasing an explosion of flight ready and wild quail. If you have a party member who chooses not to hunt, they may enjoy coming along for the photo opportunity of our dogs at work; as it is quite a sight to see!
