UNT Quail - July 2012

Do you ever wonder why the rain showers simply split and bypass your ranch?  With a little over 86% of Texas in drought, I imagine most of you do.  As conditions become more dry and brittle, quail are affected in many ways.  Check out the "Where is El Nino?" section of this newsletter to see what you can do to buffer quail from these extreme condition.  Call counts are finally finished!  Call counts in the North Texas Quail Corridor averaged 2.7 birds per stop (3 birds per stop is considered "good").  Call counts ranged from 5.5 birds to 0.2 birds per stop with an appearance of a rebound in some areas.  The Quail Calendar is Full.  You'll likely have a busy end to your summer with all the quail happenings in Texas.  The NBTC meeting occurs in August, the North Texas Quail Symposium is September 21st, the Quail Coalition is hosting many banquets during this time, and several opportunities exist to train your bird dog. Supporting Quail Conservation has never been more important.
