    Well, I closed the season this weekend without much fanfare - or birds. I took my older Llewellin setter to hunt the basin this weekend for a last shot at quail. We hunted areas around Soap Lake, such as the Gloyd Seeps WA, an area near Rocky Ford, and an area between Ancient Lakes and Quincy - all places where I have taken birds earlier in the season. Although Buddy got birdy a few times we didn't see a single bird. A hunter I ran into at Gloyd told me he got a planted rooster up near Quincy. The snow was fairly deep in many of the places I hunted. The only birds I saw were a huge covey of quail behind the cyclone fence at Notaras Lodge, where I stayed. It drove my dog nuts. Every time I would take him out to pee he would go on point and forget about the task at hand.

    The last rooster on the last day as the sun was setting.
    Job well done for the Trapper dog.
