    Has anyone seen more quail activity this year? The last couple of weekends while shed hunting I jumped couple of cubby of quail's. One had about 20 and the other had about 15. I hunted this property for 15 years and never seen a single quial till this year.

    Hey my friend congrats. I would scatter some good seed (korean or white clover ) for them maybe along the fence rows to keep them around. To answer your ? There are quail around we have 8-10 coveys we hunt every year. But the lack of cover and predators are your enemy. We saw a new covey where we deer hunt at the end of January had 10 quail in it . We hinge cut some cedars and hang a fenced feeder to try and keep them established. We only hunt 15 plus coveys and always leave covey with 6-8 birds in it.
