Each year hundreds of thousands of quail migrate to Morocco to spend their winter in the warmer climate. The little brown birds are notoriously difficult to see, keeping hidden in crops, and reluctant to fly, preferring to creep away instead they are the perfect bird to shoot over pointers. Often the birds will only flush when you or the dogs are right on top them, after breaking cover they travel low and fast making them extremely challenging quarry to pursue.

Our shoot sits in the Azilal Province of the Atlas Mountains and runs over 70,000 hectares, the area is renowned for its steep and undulating topography and hosts a vast range of unusual flora and fauna that you will struggle to find anywhere else in the world, including the barbary partridge. Slightly smaller but with a similar ‘get up and go’ attitude to the red leg partridge, the barbary is a fierce flyer making it an exciting quarry for any game shot, especially when pushed off the Atlas Mountain cliffs.
