I started using my Quail call last summer when all the quail in the surrounding fields were calling each other. I managed to call them in, one of them even landed on our deck looking for me. This year, I have not had to call them. They show up in the morning and evenings. This guy walks around on the deck and sits on the garden fence during the day. I am not sure if he is the same one that sits in the top of our pine tree every morning though. He starts calling early and leaves when it starts getting dark. The wildlife here is awesome!
I was born and have lived my entire life in the state of California. My parents moved to the little town of Thousand Oaks in 1959. The first year there, we did not even have a school. We had to go to school in makeshift classes in a cul-de-sac of new homes. The town has since turned into a beautiful town with a population of over 100,000. I married the girl I dated in high school and for some reason, she still keeps me around (35 years and counting). About 10 years ago we moved to a smaller community about 7-8 miles away in an attempt to re-capture that small town feel. Oh I forgot to mention that in 1976 we were blessed with the birth of a wonderful daughter. Our daughter married about the same time we moved (10 years ago) and now we are all getting ready to make the next journey in our lives. We are going to be moving to the Spokane area (in 2007) of Washington state. We are hoping to be able to buy homes as near to each other as possible (on acreage). Look out Spokane, here we come!
