It’s always bittersweet when a season comes to the end.The closing is a signal for more good things to come and it gives us tie to plan for another.Our Arizona Quail Season is no different ,we are glad its over but can’t wait until the 2021-22 gets here.
Scaled Quail and my W.M. Cashmore 26 Gauge
Reflecting back this past season was a gooder,lots of Desert Birds to keep things interesting and a few Mearns Quail for those wanting that challenge.To sum it up the numbers where decent and like any “wild Bird Hunt” somedays where better than others.

So as we look forward to the 2021-22 Arizona Quail Season there are rivers to be fished ,a Montana and Saskatchewan Hunting season to get thru,Dogs to be ran and trained and the non-stop Rain Dance that is performed by Arizona Quail Hunting enthusiasts including Yours Truly !
Scaled and Gambels Quail
Enjoy the Pics ! and to those that hunted with us Thanks Again !
This is the “year” for Desert Birds according to The Arizona Game and Fish Dept. Here in the S.E. Corner you’re working for them and overall its been good.The recent rain has really helped with scenting conditions and there are now longer clouds of dust hanging over the dogs as they rip it up.
Mearns Quail Hunting has been spotty but fair in places making Mearn’s Land almost vacant except for the hardcore.We like that ! We also like playing cat and mouse with Gambel’s and Scaled Quail Covey’s its unpredictable and very exciting when a large covey explodes out of whatever cover they are holding in.Most importantly spending time walking around the Desert is well worth the views and good for the soul.
I have been back from Montana for about 2 weeks and we are slowly getting out and checking out some areas and running dogs.This will increase now that its cooling off.From what I have seen here in S.E. Arizona Gambels and Scaled Quail Numbers are solid ,up from previous years.We are excited about what this season will bring as its been a while since Arizona has had good Desert Quail Hunting.
Mearns Quail are very spotty but if you have never hunted Mearns Quail or want to complete an Arizona Quail slam with a little homework its doable.Overall we think the 2020-2021 Season is going to be good.
