I have a friend that owns a ranch near Noodle,TX he was there a few days ago and his report was he covered about half the roads on approx. 2,500 acres and counted 71 different whistles. He has a quiet electric buggy that is perfect for whistle counts. Come on summer rains.

My lease in Montague has quail whistling everywhere. Saw a few pair on the roads this weekend. Rarely hunt them but cool to hear and see.

At my place in Dickens county and the place is alive with calling. Must be at least 30 to 40 different birds calling around my 160 acres. So looking forward to another great year after the last 3 with slim pickens.

I was up there 2-3 weeks ago but the wind was blowing so hard, there was no way you could hear anything.

The quail look to be doing really good in Northern and Southern Baylor county, as well. Seeing good numbers along the roads and whistling all over both ranches.

OMG guys This could be a fantastic year. I better hold my enthusiasm however this is the numbers ytd and they are fantastic at my place in Dickens county

YTD 11.9 actual normal 8.6 a 40% above normal

By date recent 5/12 .4 5/14 1.4 5/16 .4 5/24 .6 5/25 1.2

I planted my food plots milo and sun flowers on 5/7 when I left on 5/22 they were really showing promise and now with this addl rain I may really have some success. In 8 years I have only had 2 that were successful but this could be a winner.

Quail were singing all over my place these rain may be what mother nature ordered
