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 yet this new year of 2014 – sure need some soaking rains in February and March. It is very encouraging to see the good amount of seed birds that were out there as this season ended, although that’s not going to do a lot of good if things remain dry.
Thank you for your interest in this website and please continue to check in on a regular basis. There will be changes in the next few weeks/months as we work to make it more informative. During the off season, we will be posting something new in the way of quail hunting information or entertainment at least every two weeks. Thanks again!
And by the way – towards the end of January, I spent an enjoyable day hunting with Bob Corley and his son, Matt. Check out his website, www.azquailhuntingcamp.com. He has posted a full year of different hunts he has been on and they are interesting, informative and fun to read. You can also get to his website through AQT’s links page – under Blogs, Discussion Boards and Forums (The Arizona Quail Hunting Camp).
