Most of what I learned about quail hunting early on, I learned from UD-BOPP. For the uninformed, that’s the Upper Dubach Brotherhood of Partridge Pursuers.
My dad didn’t hunt quail when I was growing up so neither did I. However, a group of guys from the Dubach area – Charles Fuller, Lamar Colvin, Pete Smith, Jerry Rogers, et. al, took me under their wing and on hunts around north Louisiana.

Louisiana Tech officials announced Thursday that a 2018 non-conference football game at LSU has been scheduled.
The meeting, set for Oct. 20, 2018, at Tiger Stadium (a.k.a. Death Valley, capacity: 102,321) in Baton Rouge, will mark the 20th meeting between the two in-state schools. The last meeting occurred in 2009 with LSU rallying for a 24-16 win over Tech after the Bulldogs held a 13-10 lead at halftime.
Tech remains the only public school in Louisiana to have defeated LSU in football.
Only twice before has Louisiana Tech played in front of crowds larger than 100,000.
