Anybody hearing quail these days?

Living in NW Oklahoma and walking the back roads 6 days a week w/my 11 month old GSP, I have heard them whistling on occasion this summer, but have not seen a young covey as of yet. I agree that last year was a bust, but so has been the past 4 years compared to years gone by. I'll be in the fields working my dog later in September in prep for Nov. hunting will know then, but have a bad feeling about this year also.
