Quail Hunting

Hunting pin-raised quail at Rusty Hook Ranch is an extraordinary adventure that focuses on the excitement of the hunt itself. These birds, raised in a semi-wild environment, offer a unique challenge, as they are more elusive and cunning than their purely domestic counterparts. Pursuing these quail demands a keen eye, steady aim, and a deep understanding of their behavior.

Our skilled hunting dogs play an integral role in this thrilling pursuit, using their sharp senses to locate and flush out quail, offering you the perfect shot. It’s an exhilarating experience that will put your skills to the test and create unforgettable memories.
