What’s Happening Now – March 2010
Anyone who hunted the last few days of the quail season would have found themselves with boots stained green – a good indication from years past that a pretty good hatch is ahead. It’s a green desert right now and in most areas there were good numbers of carryover quail. If Arizona gets another couple rains in the month of March, along with good nesting conditions, it looks to be the best quail hatch we will have had on the desert in the last several years. The central to northwest parts of the state are looking the best right now due to the greater amount of carryover birds as well as rain. As far as Mearns quail goes, what will take place weather-wise in July, August, and September? – it sure will be interesting to see. Stay tuned and we’ll keep you updated as Spring and Summer unfold.
