It may just be slowed with people working from home or furloughed. The bird report was fairly late, too. I can’t imagine there’s much good news anyway, the weather is more severe ever year and there’s exponential habitat loss.
The report on quail in southeast Kansas sure isn’t consistent with what I and others have been seeing in my area.
I’ll be out there regardless, and will enjoy it whether I get into a lot of birds, or just a few.
I’ve never seen the map before. That’s cool to look at! Pretty bummed at the numbers but my dad brother and I will still be heading west. We are awful hunters but make sure to be safe and have a lot of fun. Last year on opening day we bagged 2 pheasants and were ecstatic. Just hoping for a couple good points from our dogs and hearing the cackle and the flush of the birds as they get up
