    The wife and I were vacationing down there last week around the Phoenix, Sedona, Prescott and Flagstaff areas.
    We did a few walks and I could not believe all the pointy, sharp, thorny stuff. How in the world does a guy hunt in that?
    Also, the weather was nice but was turning for the worse as we flew out. Is the area I was in a decent area for quail?

    thanks

    Cactus is all around us here in Arizona.
    It’s designed to keep foreigners from our quail spots.
    But seriously dogs do on occasions get stuck. Some guys in the more heavy areas with cholla(aka jumping cactus) have the dogs were vests and dog boots.

    Quail are very dependent on rain. So depending on storm activity in summer and and somewhat in the fall and winter
