Time for some bird reports.

Our guy in the Rolling Plains near Haskell says it looks about like last year.
Had some birds early on...not so many later.

What are you hearing / seeing?

After listening to the "Dr Dale on Quail" podcast it sounds like the early el nino weather and the late la nina weather created a similar situation for bobs across the state.

Rain is not our best friend below the gnat line. Have to wait and see.

Closest thing to "encouraging" I have heard is a from some folks patrolling pipeline ROW for leaks. They reported "better than last year, but not by much" up in the Canadian area.

Have heard a couple of good reports from down around the King Ranch area, if you have any connections down there, you might want to dip into those.

On a drive through we saw one covey the other morning.

It appears to be slightly improved over last year at my Place in Dickens county. Have seen only one covey of about 15 birds and I am hearing scattered morning calling. Focused on deer hunting and not beating the bushes.at this time.

Flew our place in Webb County two weeks ago. Tons and tons of coveys. Much higher than last year. Tons of young Bobwhites, too.

That's great news.

If you see a silver Tundra trailing you down there, you'll know it's me.

Spent 5 days this week down in La Salle County and I can say without a doubt the highest number of Bobwhite coveys I have seen in a very long time on this ranch. Seems like there were 2-3 good size coveys of Bobs at every deer blind I drove past. That did not include the coveys on ROW, roller chop strips or along ranch roads. Was a wet up till mid spring then rains were spotty and they are below yearly average on rainfall but the rains fell at the right times. Blue Quail numbers are always good on that ranch. Just nice to see Bobwhite numbers in a higher % of the overall numbers.

Got an invite to Jim Hogg county for early December before the rut starts. Hoping to find a few birds.

We haven't seen or heard any signs of Bobwhite in about 4 years.... until this year! Multiple covey with numerous young per family!
