    Any of you bowhunters seeing any quail?

    I have a couple of decent reports from some friends who went out on opening day (Quail).

    Thanks

    I saw a covey when I went and sat with Hayzer near Chillicothe. 13 birds I believe

    I also saw a covey of 20+ at a lease in Kirksville

    Where there is good habitat, there is quail regardless of how many predators there are. Seen one of the biggest coveys in September. Had to be close to 30 birds and they were right in a patch of korean lespedeza/common ragweed next to some cedars/dogwoods for escape and loafing cover. Hard to beat a spot like that for quail. :cheers:

    Been seeing a boatload of them on our place. Numbers seem to be way up this year for us.

    The farm I hunt is just loaded with Quail. :claphands: But then again it has been in CRP and a Quail restoration program for just about 10 years now. Has not been hunted (Quail) for about that long also.
