0 Erath county. We used to be covered up. Couldn't walk a couple hundred yards without bustin' a covey. Sad.

I saw a dozen Saturday night at the feeder in Fisher county. I ran my Brittany for an hour Sunday morning in front of the mule and found two small coveys. Last year there were three very large coveys on the same place, and we only hunted them one time.

8 Saturday evening in King County. They may be the only 8 birds on 1300 acres I hunt.


How come everybody I meet is a deer hunting expert?

I let my Brittany work for a bit Saturday which only resulted in him getting bitten by a rattlesnake. I'm convinced there isn't one bird on our 650 acres.

Quail were plentiful most of the year. Saw a few coveys open weekend of dove season that were coming into tanks for water.

Drove around, 2 weeks ago, 320 acres in waist high grass looking for a lost calf and didn't see a single bird. Drove around 1500 acres spreading wheat seed for quail at the water tanks this past weekend, and didn't see a single bird. Haven't heard any either. Plenty of bugs and a ton of wild grass seed. Weird.
