I've been hunting Whitney since 1962. Some years have been really good, most have been acceptable. The past three years have seen a steady decline in doves and I don't recall the last time I saw or heard quail. Last year I went to Whitney twice. First trip, opening day, I saw 2 doves 200 yds away. The next trip, second Saturday into the season, I saw no birds. I spent all day driving around the lake stopping at every entry point and talking to every hunter I saw. Nobody had more than 3 birds, most had 1 or none. Nobody had seen anything but a few singles and doubles. I haven't seen any posts from the Whitney area this season yet. I may try it next Saturday. If I do, I'll post here.
