The Northern Bobwhite Quail Colinus virginianus, is a ground-dwelling game bird native to Canada, the United States, Mexico, and Cuba. Bobwhites can be found year-round in agricultural fields, grasslands, open woodland areas, roadsides and wood edges.
Shy and elusive, Bobwhites will crouch and freeze relying on their natural camouflage to stay undetected when threatened, and will run or flush into low flight also known as a "covey rise". The sport of hunting quail is widely favored by outdoor enthusiast around the world. It is a deeply routed tradition in the south and southwest and most will agree that there is nothing more exciting than experiencing a "covey rise" under a well trained Pointer or Setter.
This buckle was designed to commemorate the love for the tradition of quail hunting, and revel in that special moment when a covey rises hunting with your closest hunting dog, friends and family.
Each buckle is handmade from Tumbaga, a blend of silver, gold, and brass. All designs are branded with our HNH signature to ensure origin and numerical lineage. Due to the handmade nature of this product, slight variations will occur. Over time each buckle captures a unique colorful patina emulating the incredible details of a quail covey rise.
Size 2" up from actual waist on belt strap sizing for this buckle to fit comfortably and allow growing room.
