There was this guy named Nathan at our Floresville trial. He's from the West Texas region, and I didn't get his contact information. He had a pretty good report on a scouting trip up around the Winters area. I had a decent lease at Paint Rock. Anyone have anymore information on that area this year? I saw this on the Leasehunters.com website, and it perked my interest;

Owner Description: We have a quail lease available on our ranch north of Ballinger. This ranch has been managed by the family for years. The quail population is decent this year. We are looking for a group that want a good quail lease, that are conservative minded. Although are quail are improving and we are making improvements to the ranch we don't want to over hunt the ranch.
The brush control and water management projects have made the ranch a good ranch to hunt with dogs.
There is a cabin available with the lease.
The lease is available as a full quail season lease.
We are asking $3 per acre for the season.

Wes is a dog trainer and an outfitter out of the Clyde/Rotan area. He said that he has no birds this year. He's booking a few hunts for blues out west somewhere.

We have a family ranch in Nolan County just bit west of Winters. Used to have unbelievable quail hunting until the last 8-10 years. Last year didnt bust a single covey with 3 dogs. We had all but given up on the quail...

Opening weekend of deer seasons, we saw multipe coveys with some as large as 20-30 birds. Hope that is a sign that the area is making a comeback.

I hunt in the area each year with my brother-in-law. I can report that the quail numbers are still down. I will give you more info on Sunday. We are going back tomorrow to hunt and see what happens.
