NICE!

What part of the panhandle?

We had some good days, we had some bad days this last season, but if this deal doesn't change soon I'm afraid what next year is going to be like! It is dry!!!

Confused... My father in law has 80 acres of prime quail habitat near Vernon, it's surrounded by cow pasture & cotton (so quail have nowhere else to go). Two seasons ago my young pup (8mos at that time) must have wild flushed 400 quail.. Once she figured it out we did good for 2 days till we had to leave. Went back this year and only flushed 10 quail.. I was told it was due to the wet springs. But here you say wet spring helps?

I guarantee you that a wet spring, if there was one in that area, had nothing to do with the quail decline of this past season. And it was not the eyeworm either. Hot weather, no rain, no food, no cover, ice in the first week of January on an already weak bird starved the birds to death. With no cover, the weak birds were susceptible of avarian predators like never before. I donít ever see anyone mention hawks and owls, but the Quail-Tech studies show that they are responsible for over 60% of quail mortality. We are going to have to feed the birds year round until this drought cycle moves out.
