I did a last weekend Quail hunt and came across several dead Rats, any information other than just nature. I had a friend with me and we both came across a few…Oh! WE DID NOT TOUCH!

Location is Northeast Howard Co.

Last quail hunt I went on in uvalde there were a lot of dead birds. But it was because a 2 and 3/4" hail storm went through a day before.

Early in the season, it was not uncommon for me to run over 10+ rats and mice just driving to the stand. I didn't realize i was actually running them over till i was driving back out after the morning hunt and noticed all the dead rats laying in the road. Were these on the road or out in the pasture?

I didn't know quail would eat dead rats. Interesting

I knocked 3 birds down on a covey rise last fall and had found 2 and was praising my female for bringing in the 3rd when I realized she had found (and it looked like she killed) a rat. Looked like a quail from a distance. I'm sure she wondered why the praise turned to scorn!

Good quail habitat is also good rat habitat.
