Hunting upland game birds with an air rifle is legal in CA and a lot of fun.
I've had good success using my .22 Mrod for quail and now prefer that over my .20ga shotgun.
The brush is pretty thick where I hunt and key is to spot them at a distance and then stalk in close enough to get a shot. If I can get within 40 yards, I can often get a bird or two before the covey spooks and takes off. In contrast, one shot from a shotgun scatters the birds asap.
