Me since I am in North Texas would look towards Albany, Colorado City, San Angelo or Childress. I've never been on a South Texas hunt but have friends that hunt there and they seem to always have birds.
I saw a single quail at ray roberts, was REALLY surprised to see one. I must have gone over quite a bit of the north part of the lake and it was the only one that I saw. Sorry buddy, but you're either going to have to pay for some or travel a bit further.
a little ways away but I have some openings in southeast nm for wild quail season runs til feb 15th we are a little over a week into the season and my hunters have been averaging 12 quail a day and have had ample opportunity to take there limits. on average have been working 10 coveys a day. these are blue quail have some areas to go hunt mearns as well if anyone is interested
