About AQT

AZQuailToday.com — a website with the goal to provide complete and updated information regarding quail and quail hunting in all of Arizona. Consisting of:

  • Hatch and rainfall information
  • Updates by region during the season (what’s going on in the region, study and biology information)
  • The most useful articles on quail hunting
  • Border information
  • Updates from some of the state’s top bird hunters
  • Equipment
  • ‘How to’ tips regarding various scenarios and events that happen frequently and good lodging and restaurant information as well — a large amount of interesting and changing data! It will be an all inclusive website on quail hunting which makes it unique. It is a pulling together of a lot of information from a lot of different sources, including my 50+ years of hunting quail. It will be updated regularly, not only and especially during the bird season, but all year long.

One thing it’s not about, however, is…it’s not about a place to go hunt. You can imagine how ridiculous that would be to give coordinates away on a website – I’ve seen many places ruined by that kind of information. Here’s one man who understands: “I would rather give you my social security number than the coordinates of my favorite hunting spot.” – Chukartalk.com

AZQUAILTODAY.com – a website with quail and quail hunting information, but it’s really more than that – it’s primary purpose is to help raise funds to bring children into nature and the great outdoors! This is done through the non-profit organization, ARIZONA OUTDOOR ADVENTURES. We provide children with an adventure in the White Mountains, especially children who do not have the opportunity to get in the outdoors and experience all the benefits and joys that fishing, hiking, horseback riding and numerous other outdoor activities can bring to a child. Please look our website over at www.azoutdooradventures.org – you’ll be glad you did!

Arizona Outdoor Adventures is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
