Seeing any quail on your dove hunts?

Bill, I saw 5 big coveys on a 1000 acre place east of Lampasas that typically has no birds to speak of. Its the first seen there in several years. It makes the heart smile.

went out last night to a friends ranch near my home. I've never seen so many quail in my life. Had to be nearly 500 we saw in the span of an hour around a decent size tank. Not much water out there so they must have been concentrated in that area because we'd walk and bump out so many the ground looked like it was crawling and they were HEALTHY.

I saw several pairs at separate times along the road to my lease in Murray. Also spooked a covey of 10 or so on the property. I didn't see any last year, so I'll take it as a decent sign.

Probably one of the best years I have seen in a long time. Seemed like they were everywhere the last trip to the ranch.

Coveys we were busting had over 50-100 per. I'm sure I won't see that again when season rolls around lol.

Flushing 25+ coveys a day just running around the pasture I lease. And that's without driving around during peak morning and evening times of day because I'm in the field or over water.

Dove hunted Sweetwater area last weekend. Heard quail in every direction. Saw coveys is every field. Had a covey walk out of the tree line within 10 feet of me on Saturday morning (about 15 birds). Covey flew over my head later Saturday morning (6 birds). Had small covey run in front of me in a different field Saturday afternoon. Saw about 10 pairs in the road and saw 2 large coveys in the road (20 to 30 birds) driving back Saturday evening. The most birds I've seen and heard in 15 years of dove hunting in Sweetwater.
