What’s Happening Now – May 2014

So far its been another dry, windy Spring and the desert has dried out considerably. However, Gambel’s quail have been hatching in some areas – the Roosevelt area, Congress/Hillside area, and in the area toward Lake Pleasant. The only significant rain that occurred during the month of April was in the northwest part of the state – some areas around ... Read More »

What’s Happening Now – February 2014 #2

In general, looking over the entire state, the 2013-2014 season was a great improvement over the last two years. By and large, there was a good hatch on all three species of quail – Mearns’, Scaled, and Gambel’s. I suppose if there is any negative side to it at this point, it would be the current dry conditions. No moisture ... Read More »

As the season nears an end, we’ve moved through the entire month of January without any precipitation. Things are really beginning to dry up. February and March rain will be critical for a desert quail hatch next year. That being said, it’s time for a word about sportsmanship and ethics – which, by the way, is a new menu item ...

What’s Happening Now – January 2014

It’s an old cliche, but true – time flies – most of Arizona’s 2013-2014 quail season is already behind us! Mearns’ Quail: all of the many reports do indicate a much improved hatch from the previous two years, though very spotty. It’s about 50/50 when it comes to reports of seeing 8 – 12 coveys in a day to reports ... Read More »

What’s Happening Now – December 2013

Mearns’: Back about mid-November, I mentioned going out on a limb to predict a better Mearns’ quail hatch. It’s turning out to be true with good portions of Mearns’ country having a pretty decent hatch. Most of the covey sizes have been good, full-sized coveys with a good number of birds of the year. Another word of caution though, as ... Read More »
