I hope every (U.S.) reader a great Thanksgiving. Mine was spent in the plains of West Texas on a huge ranch west of Snyder, TX. My mom, dad, and brothers all drove up and met Sarah and I there.
Saying this place was in the middle of nowhere is a understatement. After exiting highway we drove about 30 minutes down a dirt rode, through a stream, and back into a enclave in the hills. It really is a beautiful location, just a little difficult to get to.
Both mornings we were there we went quail hunting, waking up at 6:00am, getting some coffee, watching the sun rise and then heading out to spots we thought we could find some birds. We had pretty decent luck on both days and were able to get about 13 birds total.
It was a great trip and a much needed relaxation period. School starts back up on Monday and I needed the break to recharge my batteries and get focused for the end of this semester and the beginning of next.
