What’s Happening Now – May 2015
Another bit of moisture moved through the state around the 3rd week of April. Some areas received a nice dose of rain – mainly the central part of the state. The desert quail hatch, again, is continuing to look pretty good.
If this report is correct (Arizona monsoon expected to be active thanks to El Niño) things maybe looking up for Arizona’s desert quail and Mearns’ quail. Warming water in the Pacific Ocean generally means more rain for the summer and winter months. Summer rains boding well for Mearns’ quail; winter rains boding well for desert quail.

A new addition to Q5 Outdoor Products is the Accessory Recommendations page that you might find interesting. These are products that I have found to be greatly beneficial while upland bird hunting. Though I have not personally used all the products listed, others I have hunted with have so I’ve included these products as well.
Here is one product in particular that I use and recommend: Columbia Men’s Bahama II Long Sleeve Shirt and the Columbia Men’s Bonehead Short/Long Sleeve Shirt. Yes, technically these are fishing shirts but they’re lightweight and work great for most average weather during upland bird hunting. One of the best features of these shirts are the extra pockets.
