We went out this weekend and did some scouting for Quail. Saw more than 10 coveys (gambel), most with more than 15 birds. Could be a good season. Do any of you other AZ guys think numbers are up this year. It seems like it to me.
 
Hi quailhunter... I forgot where south of Tucson you said you lived? Have you checked around Green Valley? I was there in Dec. and man there were a lot of them buggers there.
 
I would say this is the best year for quail I have seen in a while. Been seeing big coveys and it looks like lots of the first year birds made it.
 
I always see tons of quail, but thats mainly cause I fish the lakes and there is always water around.

The large ammount of rain arizona got in march/april helped out the youngins, i watched a couple of coveys drop chicks and 80% have lived. Last year the rate was about 30%.

So you are close to Nogalas hey? My girlfriend was wondering what your name was. She grew up in Green valley. I would like to hunt her parents property... man they are thick there. Good luck to you.
 
Well, im not in AZ but I am in southern NV and have seen 1 covey of over 100 birds. Should be a good year. And , NO! Im not lying.
 
Crapshoot. I believe ya. Ive coveys that have hundreds of birds in them. Looks liek the whole mountain side takes off.
