Arizona Quail Hunting Outlook for the 2019/20 Season

Covering a point

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.

Covey Rise -Saskatchewan Upland Bird and Waterfowl Guide

In 2000 Licensed Saskatchewan Upland Bird and Waterfowl Guide and Outfitter Dave Brown made the decision to focus his Wingshooting Endeavors in The Province of Saskatchewan.The attraction was and still is,lack of hunting pressure,great habitat,LOTS of Huns and Sharptails,low population density and easy access from The United States.The “Off The  Charts” Duck hunting might also had something to do with his move.

Having hunted Huns across the Western States and Provinces Dave realized that Saskatchewan was the only North American Wingshooting destination where depending on habitats  Upland Bird Hunters could consistently see 5-12 Coveys of Huns,plus Sharptails per day.

Avain A- Frame Blinds offer great concealment and comfort for our hunters

Brown Trout Double -Missouri River

As far as the trout hierarchy goes nothing beats Brown Trout.Cutties are cute,Rainbows fill a void and I would rather take a disobedient Labrador Puppy for a walk than catch a Bull Trout.Opinionated ? You bet.Targeting Big Brown Trout is a lot of fun, wether its a big floatable river or a tiny creek they are a blast.Enjoy the pics from this ongoing seasonI’m sure there will be more.

Despite warm temps the rivers are holding up well.The Elk River and Tribs continue to fish good,Terestrials are getting it done, hatches include Flavs,Nocturnal Stones, Caddis.The same hold true for the Saint Mary River.

Over in Alberta Hopper fishing is the norm,Anglers wanting to match the hatch can easily do so with foam Hoppers and other terrestrial patterns.We are also seeing (depending on the river ) hatches of Caddis,Tricos,Pink Alberts.

The Bow River continues to amaze Anglers with the off the charts Hopper fishing it’s that good.As air temperatures cool down watch for hatches of October Caddis and B.W.O’s Fall will be in the air sooner than later.
