Quail hunting reports 2010

Recommended Posts

Just got back from Tonto Basin. It was hot today. Luke Duke and I finished around 9:30. (Well I did). He got 2 birds with 1 shot and called it a day. :lol: He stayed at the truck and watched me roam the hills sweating. I got birds 14 and 15 on the way back to the truck. My spot did not appear to have as many birds as last year and the biggest covey I saw was about 25 birds. Most were 10 or so. The prickly pear fruit was spotty in my area. Last year had more fruit. No snakes to report either. :o

I and a friend are leaving in the morning to go out in the 31-32 area so we will see how it is out this direction. We are also taking the varmint calls out to see if we can shoot a predator or two.

I was out Oct.1 on the north side of Roosevelt lake-Got a few birds and quit early-really hot. I saw good numbers of birds but they seemed really spooky for opening morning. Lots of birds getting up out of range or right on the edge of gun range-the ones you shoot at when you know they are too far and then shoot again because your gun holds more than one shell. Think I will go again next week and hope for cooler weather-would like to take my dog but just to hot. Didn't see any snakes and only talked with one hunter who did see any.

Well we did not fare as good as most but we ended up with 12 birds. We also saw a nice 3x Whitetail where my friends and I are going to hunt in November.

It's that time again! Looks like the desert should be fairly green. I am heading out to my usual opening day spot in Tonto Basin for about the 28th straight year.( might have missed 1 year) Hope it is better than last year.

Don't get your hopes up. It's gonna be a hard quail year from what I've seen... Get at em early before they get smart! Good Luck!

I was hoping to be able to hunt this weekend but gotta work. I found a spot near red rock while dove hunting. First and last time I'll hunt "in the city" but I did find a cuvy of around 80+ quail. Since I can't make it all the way up there I'll give GPS cords to someone who can. Pm me and we'll go from there.
