How is quail hunting in your area.
Have been told it is terrible around Prescott area.
Would like to make a trip Dec. or Jan.

I don't hunt quail often, but I have not been seeing nor hearing a lot of them recently while I have been out predator hunting.

None of the reports that I have been getting are very good.

Thanks
This is what I am hearing also.
I grew up in Bagdad, have never not been able to find some quail.
Somewhere between Kingman and Wickenburg there have to be quail.
Been in Nev. for 32 yrs. and I still miss AZ bird hunting.

Most years I see and hear a LOT of them while I am out calling. But not this year. Some years I will throw in a pocket full of birdshot shells while I am out calling in foxes with my shotgun, so I can snag a few for the BBQ.

We went so long without rain in the spring most of the little ones didn't make it. Very poor quail crop this year.

Honestly, southern Arizona has had a poor quail crop for the last 25 years and more.
