EXPLORE ALL THE NEWS FROM QUAIL COUNTRY, PLAN YOUR HUNTS,
AND KEEP AUTUMN TRADITIONS ALIVE.

Winter snowstorms, spring rains, summer drought: There's much that can affect our favorite bird in that "quail hunter's purgatory" that stretches from the final day of last year's quail season to the first sunrise of a new season's opener, and much speculation about how the new season will shake out. With fall now upon us and opening day so close we can feel it, this is the time we as quail hunters live for.

Quail Forever’s 2020 Fall Hunting Forecast is here once again to help you plan your season. It runs down the state-by-state quail news and insights you need to complete your fall hunting plans, whether those plans involve out-of-state adventures, close-to-home hunts, or both. We've got you covered with the most extensive, detailed, up-to-date forecasts available.

MILD WINTERS AND TEMPERATE SPRING CONDITIONS HELPED QUAIL RECRUITMENT IN SOME REGIONS,
ACROSS MUCH OF QUAIL RANGE NUMBERS EITHER HELD STEADY OR INCREASED

Mild winters and timely moisture in states like Arizona brought a second year of much-needed improvement in desert quail numbers, while across the southern and central plains, spotty rainfall may have locally affected numbers, but overall a relatively warm winter and spring precipitation bode well for fall quail numbers. In the southeast, as always, birds will be earned, but a mild winter and good nesting conditions mean an increase in some states in areas of managed habitat and where the hard work and dedication of Quail Forever chapters is paying off with more habitat on the ground.
