This is a very special episode of Hunt Gather Talk, as Hank gets the chance to talk with Rocky Gutierrez, one of the nation’s foremost game bird biologists. Gutierrez has published more than 175 peer-reviewed papers on birds ranging from spotted owls to ruffed grouse, Valley quail, band-tailed pigeons, as well as the main topic of our conversation: mountain quail.

Rocky is one of the top three experts on mountain quail, and we talk a ton about this mysterious bird: how to find it, how it lives, and how to hunt it. But this episode ranges farther than that.
