What’s Happening Now – January 2015

Reports are as follows:
– Gambel’s Quail: Poor
– Scaled Quail: Below average
– Mearns’ Quail: About average

Mearns’ quail are taking quite a beating this season. Here’s an idea to try out to leave some birds for other hunters and increase carryover: Cut your personal limit in half, try 4 birds per day instead of 8. With good summer rains in 2015 and good carryover birds from this season, next season could be well above average in the way of Mearns’.
