South Texas Hunting Cars

There is so much land to cover when hunting in our area, most of it is done from a hunting car.  If you had to walk the distance that is required to find the 20 coveys per day that we consider a standard day, you would be one tired hunter.

Hop on a hunting car for a hunt and let's see what one looks like.

The South Texas hunting car is a unique vehicle and it comes in all shapes and sizes.  Most of the hunting cars are actually four wheel drive pick up trucks with the bed removed and a special hunting bed installed.  This will contain high seats for the hunters to watch the dogs run, a cooler for the drinks, a water jug for the hunters, dog cages for carrying several dogs, a water reservoir for the dogs, spare tires, tools, a wet bar (when the gun powder is put away).  In short, the truck will carry everything that is needed for man or dog to stay in the field for a day of hunting.

I built my first hunting car in 1978 using a 1968 VW bus body.  A friend called it the quailmobile and the name stuck.  I am in the process of building my third quailmobile and it is being built using a 1970 VW bus body.
