What’s Happening Now – October 2009


2009-10 Quail Hunting Outlook

Poor – Fair

Scaled quail = Fair to Average: “Last year was fair and the timing and amount of seaonal rains fell short of average and will have this year looking much the same for this bird found in the southeastern reaches of our state.”

Mearns’ quail = Below-average to Average: “After two back-to-back season, due to spotty to poor summer rains resulting in a poor nesting season, predictions are for a below-average to average Mearns’ quail season.”

This winter’s precipitation was average but the spring and summer rains were poor increasing mortality to broods. The Gambel’s quail season will not be improved from last year at below average to poor.
