Just heard a radio show where Rollings was interviewed and asked to make a prediction about the upcoming quail season. He prefaced it by saying it was still too early to say for sure, but he is predicting a "disappointingly average" season. Admittedly said that anything short of spectacular on the heels of the past 2 years was bound to be so. Reckon he is being overly cautious, or do you guys have the same feelings?

I assume he's describing the state as a whole but I'd have to question it based on what some pretty reliable people have told me about the areas that I hunt.

We have several clutch ages maturing now and based on rain we'll have another hatch. Of course, even when it's bad at big lake it's still stellar.

Again his glass is always half empty especially this time of year. I would imagine more money (donations) comes in when not as good. I think he is a great guy and does a lot of good just my observation. Now I will say how could it ever be as good as last year?

Okay, everything is a math problem for me. Based on the last two years averages, if I lost 50% of the quail I have been pointing and flushing, that would equal somewhere between 16-18 coveys a day I could still play with. I'll take it!

My numbers here are probably what they were last year and maybe a little less.

I've seen a lot of seasons that I would've been tickled to get "average".

Talked to a rancher today that we hunt on every year NW of Abilene, and he said he would be real surprised if it doesnt turn out as good as the past two years. Said little dry in May then its been frequent rain and cover looks great. Lots of chicks of various sizes.
