The long barrel BHE 20-gauge, said to have belonged to Clark Gable, that visited our PGCA booth at The Vintage Cup at Sandanona had a Dove in flight on the left side and a California Valley Quail on the right. Unfortunately my snap shot of that gun is too washed out to show the Quail.

And the 32" 28 ga. thought to have been owned by the same gentleman had quail on the floorplate. Those pics can be found on page 20 "Parkers for Sale" section.

This quail may only fly short distances due to problems with lift......

But, Dean, he's well fed! Obviously a product of good habitat (and a beautiful gun!).

Sorry, these birds below flew by me at my semi-annual "wipe-down day" One often finds birds of another feather at the back of the safe.

That setter or spaniel looks like the work of Joe Loy.
