Guess that tells the whole story,,, in N W. OK>. on my lease they found 6 coveys Sat. and 1 on Sun.(weather got hot on Sun. ) ----- Has to be 12-15 coveys to make the drive worthwhile for me. 8 hr drive from Temple. Several years ago we would find 30 coveys per day. One weird thing, they found about 200 sandhill cranes in one field,,,, we'll see if they come back .

They are also scarce in fire ant free areas.

I've been out among them this week. Scenting conditions are tough and the dogs haven't been finding many birds. I see sign (namely tracks and roosts) where I expect to see them. I sure don't think it will be a banner year. In fact I'm inclined to believe numbers will be down here in the OK panhandle where I hunt. I'm still going to try to get as many hunts in as I can because my oldest dog, Ellie Mae, only has so many more runs left and I want her to get them while she can.

A couple of good frosts or a good freeze and folks will find more birds. Not a banner year but areas of the plains got good rain and wont know how many birds till some of this tough cover gets down.

Me did Matador on opening weekend, but it was sad. It was 70 degrees by 10:00 and there was not much moisture in the air.
We saw a few signs, but did not move a covey before it got too hot for the older dogs. Out of about a dozen groups out that day, I have only heard of two the bagged birds.

Life is too short to go quail hunting with the wrong folks.
