Our main goal is giving quail hunters real value by locating quality places with ample amounts of pre-scouted upland birds.”
What to expect on this Arizona quail hunt:
These wild Arizona quail hunts take place October through February. Each year, prior to hunting season, all of the hunting locations are pre-scouted to determine quail populations, and where the birds are hanging.
Hunting may take place across the entire state of Arizona depending on quail populations and the particular species that you want to hunt. In most cases it is necessary to concentrate on a single species each day. Generally speaking, Arizona hunting is for Gambel’s Quail, Scaled, & Mearns Quail. Let us know which species you want to target before your hunt.
Each guide will take no more than two hunters (in most cases) and you will change guides daily so that you will have the pleasure of hunting with each guide and his dogs. All guides will have at least four dogs each. It is fun to watch the dogs range wide in the open expanse of Scaled Quail territory, and then come in closer when hunting the sparser cover that the tight-holding Mearns Quail live in.
