We aren't looking great. I saw some pairs with chicks mid summer but not much since.

It'll be interesting. I haven't taken my dog out yet but will in the next week or two, just to see if we can come across any.

Yep. Late summer drought is killing us every year it seems. My dog is 3 and we haven't had huntable numbers yet in Fisher Co. I'll be going south and north once again.

Look up Dr. Dale on Quail podcast... Dr. Dale Rowling's(sp?)

He leads the rolling planes research ranch and has an estimate every year. He put his out in September I think... It's on the podcast

What's a quail look like? It's been to many years since I ran across one, I don't remember.

Yep. He's great.

Also follow the Rolling Plains Quail Research facebook page. They put great info on it.

I have heard more favorable reports than the people on this thread suggest. I am expecting more juvenile birds this year. Rain at the right time this year was significantly better than in previous years.

Gotta be more specific when yall ask about quail numbers. Just in this thread alone you are looking at people reporting on an area ranging from Monahans up 300 miles to lubbock and all the way over towards Abilene.
