This is my 16 year old grandson, Will Ullrich, of Oconomowoc, Wisconsin, experiencing his first ever quail flush on the Babacomari Ranch in Elgin, Arizona last January. Brittanys Tuff and Pistachio helped find the Mearns quail, which got up in a hurry.
Though Will didn’t connect on this covey, he went on to bag three species of quail and a handful of doves on his first trip to Arizona. Will carries a 20-gauge RBL Launch Edition, which he received for his 16th birthday from his good friend Rick Whiting and Will’s family.
