I live on the outskirts of town near Victoria Texas. This morning a pair of quail walked past my window and continued on towards the pasture.
This is a welcome sign for this year.

I've seen quail twice at the lease in Concho County this year.

I saw a covey in town last week, it was surprising to see them since it is in an area that the homeless hangout.

Rare one for sure. I saw a single around Jacksboro a few weeks ago.

Glad you have some Quail. In East Texas, I haven't heard one in the last 10 years.

I heard one, and later saw one, at a friend's place 4 years ago outside Jefferson.

Yep, if I saw a quail on my ranch I'd make him a sandwich or something but I'd never shoot it. Fire ants wiped them out here years ago.

Lying is lying. Don't bitch about one doing it and condone another. That's called hypocrisy.
