The report I received from my place was pretty dim as well. I'll go several times but just to keep the dogs nose into it. I'll have a shotgun for snakes and hogs. I know 80% of quail don't survive the winter but if I don't take any that 80% will come from a larger number.


There is time, and you must take it, to lay your hand on your dog's head as you walk past him lying on the floor or on his settle, time to talk with him, to remember with him, time to please him, time you can't buy back once he's gone" GBE

I'm having trouble with the link. He did report that the Panhandle has decent numbers this year.
