Nancy lines up for a single

To say that this past Arizona Quail Season was stellar would be a very considerable overstatement, the birds where there but we experienced The warmest and direst winter on record.90 days without rain and 70degree plus temps made scenting conditions almost impossible.But when the stars aligned it was still pretty decent.The good news is that since the end of February we have received close to 4 inches of rain.This Will help with our Desert Quail Reproduction as we are already seeing significant  green -up on the Desert Floor.
