Ive been told that there are indeed quail at the grasslands but I have never seen any. I walked extensively over the last couple days with my dog and didnt turn any up. She is a great GSP. If anyone has any pointers (no pun intended) I could really use them, if anyone has any idea of what general units they may be on and would like to go meet up with me and Clare I would like to do that also. Thanks all.
Ran a lot of trials on LBJ and only occasionally came across a wild covey. We normally ended up planting birds in a "bird field" for final placement. Even on a good quail year, the population at LBJ has been slim unfortunately

Hunt 'em if you got 'em! They may not be here next year!
You probably need to be out there at the break of day. A covey will whistle just as it gets light to see. After they whistle, you can pin point about where they are. After a few trips and listening at different spots, you can pretty much hunt the same areas and find them since they are territorial.

Used ta see a pair of bobwhites hanging around the pastures... Once in a great while hear em & see batch of wee ones... from what heard several years ago used ta see a covey or two or three... they done gone missing...
Thank you all for your input! I've hunted that place pretty hard for the last few years and have never seen any, I had never specifically sought them out either though so I was curious. I am going to try to make a dash up to Gene Howe WMA or some other WMA before the season is up.
