What’s Happening Now – Season Wrap-Up 2012/2013
As this season is closed out, a few things come to mind. It has really been good to (1.) see Mearns’ quail begin to make a bit of a comeback, and (2.) see the amount of seed birds that are out there, especially in Region III and Region VI. Another bright note regarding the end of the season is that some fairly good moisture has developed through the months of December, January, and February. As a matter of fact, as this is written in February, two substantial storms have moved over most of the state, so most all of the quail country at this point in time looks pretty good. Also, seeing some change in the opening and closing dates of the season is beginning to look possible. It seems that more and more people are beginning to see the advantages of a later opening date and a slight extension of the closing date.
