So far so good as we have received a lot of Winter rain.This should result in a better than normal bump for Gambels and Scaled Quail.Arizona Mearns Quail require Monsoon or Summer Rains to stimulate their reproductive cycle.Right Now its safe to say we will have better numbers of Scaled and Mearns Quail.Read our Reviews ,checkout our Arizona Quail Hunting Page for season Dates and Rates and please check back often.

Dogs cooling off

It’s good to be home in Arizona.With that comes a lot of preparation for the up and coming season which equates to driving around the S.E. Corner of the State and doing ‘Taste Tests”  better known as Scouting which entails running dogs and seeing what is out there.

Other areas of the State might be better off  for Gambels Quail however the claim to fame to this area is the 3 Species that we can hunt which are Mearns,Gambels and Scaled Quail.

Gambels Quail

Due to really shitty scenting conditions,It’s been day to day,I’m encouraged on the “good “days when we find them however some days its a lot of walking or armed hiking chasing Birds that easily disappear.My observation is we a getting or harvesting young of the year Birds which is always a good sign.Its been hot and dry therefore when we get some rain this week conditions will drastically improve.

The 2018/19Season was all about Mearns Quail,with a few Gambels and Scalies thrown in.We had to work for the Birds but as the saying goes “thats what wild bird hunting is all about”.Our Clients like that and so do we.

Mearns Quail

 S.E. Arizona has had above average moisture over the Winter Months.Thats good news for Arizona Gambels and Scaled Quail !Hunters looking to book trips should do it now.Some weeks are almost sold out.We are confident we will have fair -good Desert Bird hunting this season.It’s still to early tell forecast Mearns Quail as Monsoon Rains where spotty, some areas look ok others not so much.We will be out doing our homework before the season starts.
