    Thoughts on neonicotinoid insecticides?

    Your farmer is spot-on. Do neonic treated seeds and glyphosate alone kill quail? In the short term, probably no. Are expansive, commercialized crop fields, void of any annual weeds or insects, beneficial to quail? I would guess there’s not a bit of literature out there that would say “yes”...

    TT15 mini

    I was in S&R yesterday and they had several TT15s on the shelf. The owner said the majority of their sales are on the internet. Just FYI if you still haven’t found a collar.

    Check with S&R in Middletown, MO. I was on a waiting list for several months before getting a couple but they may be back in stock now.

    Garmin collar antenna.

    That sounds about right. I keep a couple extra antennas in the dog box as it’s not uncommon for them to shear off at the black sleeve that routes them along the collar strap.

    Kennel Septic System?

    Not sure where to post this but I’ll try here. I’ve got a 4-run kennel I’m putting up at our new house. Each of the pens is 10’x10’ and I’m going to pour a concrete pad roughly 44’x15’. That leaves 2’ of concrete extending past each “narrow” end, a 3’ walkway in front of the “long” end to access...

    North Central Kansas

    Hunted 2.5 days Tuesday through Thursday. We found 7 coveys of quail and saw about 30 pheasants, probably 8-10 roosters. Also saw 2 different groups of chickens, even pointed a single! I'm a little disappointed in the quail numbers since that's what we were after but Thursday was downright cold...
