Raining at our lease right now. I bet it is going to be a great bird crop this year. Anyone here planning a trip to The black kettle? I guarantee you it will be good hunting this year. Also, I have never looked at the property but there is a chunk of land north of lake Waurika that is public and is open for Quail hunting most of the season (need to check for open dates - they change) I bet it will be good too.

Raymond 07, are you getting back on your lease?

Anyone else hunting Oklahoma?

CCBIRDDOGMAN,

If you ever need anyone to tag along and show the ropes "mentor" Elcazador and myself are more than willing to fill that spot...

Wish I could, but I have to ask for exceptions to the lease rules just to get to bring the couple of guests that I do get to bring.

Not the lease, just the public hunting land. If there is ever a chance and someone needs a navigator count me in.

I'm sure someone will take you up on that. If you are going to Black Kettle, P.M. me, I will tell you exact places to go that will help you find birds. It's really a nice place to hunt. I doubt we will go hunt any public unless I can talk my buddy into going and checking out the place north of lake Waurika.

I have gotten reports from a ranch in the Arnett area that butts up to the Pack Saddle and they say they are seeing lots of birds. A good derby dog is able to get 2 or 3 finds in 45 minutes and in very heavy cover.

We've got Waurika on the calendar. Let us know how your hunt goes. I expect bird populations to be good in all of our usual spots this year.

I own land in Fox and Velma. I saw several coveys over July 4th weekend which is kind of earlier than usual to see coveys. 100 times more quail this year than 2 years ago and 60% more than last year. Actually thinking about doing a hunt in late Jan or early Feb after deer season.

Do lease prices go up when the birds rebound

I was up at Guymon a couple of weeks ago. Quail are strong but pheasant still have a long way to recover. Sure seeing more antelope towards Hardesty.

I hunted a 5,000 acre ranch that bordered the Black Kettle area last year and we found 2 coveys all day. The weather was terrible (rain and wind), but that still has me a bit skeptical about that area. We found birds all over the Texas Panhandle last year but not much luck over there. It may have been a fluke; i'll be interested to see if anyone has luck there this year.

Can you hunt from a vehicle up there?
