Hard to get a read on it, since everything is a percentage increase to last year -- and last year was pretty close to no birds. From my calling around, sounds like you need to find spring/early summer rains but not a county that got 20 inches or more of rain in June that washed away the eggs and chicks.

Northwest saw "a nearly 50 percent increase in the brood survey compared to 2013"... But 2013 was the worst I have seen it in a decade.
Only one way to find out for sure. Come on November 8.

I was in the northwest area (unit 1 and 2) and heard reports of 30% to 60% over 2013 while I was there. They had good rains in a lot of that area and not so much in other parts of it. They had hail 3 times in the late spring to summer in the Goodland area that got some of the wheat before harvest and stripped a lot of corn. Some beans had to be replanted 2-3 times I was told. I saw birds of all sizes. Seen small birds 7-8 weeks old (I was told by a friend) in groups of 6-8. He told me he had been seeing groups of 8-10 birds in August already before. He was not sure if they had another late hatch or the hail caused them to renest. We herd a lot of birds in grass pastures and in CRP while I was hunting for whitetail last week. CRP was very tall and thick. Lot of clover this year along with Kochia weeds and Sunflowers 5-8' tall. I did not see any CRP being cut for hay this year at all. Did see a lot of cane/grazer standing and cut for hay/silage.
