We only saw 6 between 3 of us and they were very, very skittish and too far to shoot. We figured the same thing you guys did, Poser. There were some fairly close shots from some duck hunters that we figured might've made it tougher, but who knows. I was still in deer mode, especially after some of the sign I found out there!

Lots of fresh deer and rabbit turds. Even a few coyote piles full of grey fur.

Must have been going around - Grandson and I walked the woods for 2 hours and barley heard a bird, let alone see any tree rats -

It was a good time \:\)

One of the spots I used to hunt had a covey of quail. It was incredible to sit in my tree stand and enjoy them working the area below me.

They would regularly be under two of my stands.

Funny Story: I was watching one that had wondered out into the field edge, when all the sudden he began a super-fast sprint to the woods. I chuckled to myself! Then I realized he was running from a little 5 pt buck that was walking down the tree line.

That buck became my first ever buck with my bow. \:D I just looked at those antlers this weekend.

I know of multiple coveys in Williamson and Maury counties, not so rare where the habitat is good

After more than 15 years without ever again hearing them call back and forth, I started hearing them again in the dove field. Saw a couple wandering around Mrs. TAFKAP's grandmother's house last Easter. That was the first time I saw a quail since the early 90's.

I see them on occasion and more often hear them at my farm in TN. Also on some land in MI. Hopefully, making a comeback.
