This weeks episode really makes the effects of the current drought hit home for me. Every pond and stock tank on The Miller Ranch is now completely dry. The cover is completely depleted and the landowner says that he is seeing no quail. The entire state is being effected. We seem to be in a fairly consistent rain pattern for the last couple of months.I just hope it continues. I am curious to see if the quail numbers will ever recover to pre-drought conditions.
