|Beautiful place to be in the field hunting quail|

While we were blessed to be hunting in the shadow of Edisto Island, we were mindful of the recent passing of Edisto Beach Mayor Burly Lyons, who was an avid quail hunter himself. Hiott, Steedley and Rogers all had the privilege to hunt with Lyons, while I never knew of his affinity for Gentleman Bob. When we connected with our feathery targets on our good shots this day, it was a salute to all those who went before us in the field. For the missed shots, we were able to keep walking ahead to locate that next covey or to track down singles, and at the end of the day... to begin waiting for the next quail season to arrive.
