NO DOUBT - all these poults a result of the Predator Control Permit
I saw around 20 this week. Two of the groups ive seen earlier this year. Pretty excited they’re still around.
Nice hatch right there
Saw a single hen this morning with 9!
Gonna be a great season in 2 years. Keep trapping them coons and possums.
This picture is from lawson6565.
There are 8 poults but you can only see two by the time my phone for in gear.
Another hen this morning with 8-10 big poults! Wife saw a hen with at least 3 poults last week. Beginning to think at least in SE ark it was a really good hatch.
Good news on our Lease.
Talked with a hunting buddy from SE arkansas this morning. Says he has seen more than he has seen in years.
Saw a hen run across the road on my way home from work coming from Heber and she had 8 or 9 poults standing in the ditch with her as I slowed down to get a look. All appeared to be about the size of full grown chickens. Pretty encouraging to see.
Finally got some trail cam pics of hens with poults! 2 hens together with 10 poults I could count. Another pic of one hen with 4 poults. So at least we had some hatch success...
And yep, I will keep after the predators...
Me and my boy saw around 4 hens today with a unknown number of poults. It was in tall grass and hard to say. They were different ages but all well developed. Feathered and could fly like the mommas. Some definite early hatches and maybe a second attempt thrown in. Guys I have laid eyes on more poults this year in SE AR than in a LONG time. It has to be a hatch comparable to the early 2000’s before the great decline.
Y’all probably wont believe this but yesterday evenin I was looking at 7 poults and 5 quail at the same time! Yes in Arkansas
that would be rarer than either a black mt lion or bigfoot in AR. I have seen quite a few covies of quail this fall on my bear lease - no turkeys, though
Saw my first batch yesterday on the side of the road. Have heard quite a few good reports on sightings. Im sure hopin they had a good hatch.
It seems to run exact same, ive seen each once.
Saw a hen yesterday with 7 poults but i think I have seen them already. Still very encouraging around here.
You weren’t at Atwood’s or the swap meet were you?
