Hunted 1400ish acres SW of Lake Stamford this weekend with one find. It's a buddies deer lease and we try to hit it every year after deer season. He claims to have seen quail around every deer feeder when he was deer hunting. We hunted them all, found one covey of 5 birds no where near a feeder
Dogs hunted well, as well as can be expected in solid prickly pear cactus! Didn't boot as I normally do since the cactus goes right through and sticks. No grass burrs out there. Got too warm for my liking, especially in early Feb. 72 and windy Saturday. Quite by 11 Sunday @ 60 already.
Not looking too promising for next year
Need some cooler weather, spring rains, mild summer, and an eradication of the eye worm.
