I was wondering how far from water is too far for Quail. I haven't any luck for Quail in Gorman or above Castaic. A guy at work mentioned Santa Barbara canyon. Anyone familiar with this area? I'm new at this and could use all the help I could get.
I find valley quail usually within a 1/2 mile of water. unless they have been recently scattered. Mtn Quail....I think they carry their water with them. I've found them to be more like Chukar.....hronk
Slugblaster, I hunt alot in the Gorman are off the 138 hwy. There is alot of Quail out there you need to scout around the aquadulck areas. They are out there, drop me an email when you go maybe I'll join you.
