South Texas close to San Manuel in Hidalgo County. Was cloudy and the threat of rain was there all day; plus it has rained pretty hard down here. Saw a ton of quail! As we walked the field, and we were there only a while, we broke one covey of at least ten birds, and my dog pointed to about five or six small two to four bird mini-coveys. That was a large field, we walked maybe twenty acres of it (maybe a fifth of the open field)! Hope they stay around until late October!


Patience, Lots of Patience!

Dove hunted the first week on a ranch north of Post and East of Lubbock. Not a lot of doves and all immature but we flushed three large coveys in separate areas. Ranch manager said this was unusual but pig population/;activity is way down for some reason.

I miss the good old days of plentiful quail in N. Texas.


Do you ever get the feeling you're being watched? Because if you do, I'll stop doing it.

Geee me too grew up in brush country off the Colorado in mills co. We had so many quail it wasn't funny I am so glad I got to at least enjoy them for a while. I could literally limit out any day I wanted to I haven't seen a quail there in 15 years! Really glad to hear all the reports of them coming back in places they haven't been in a while.
