    Lots of signs on the pavement, more federal law than you can shake a stick at, some roads with barricades on them.

    Well just for staters, you knew it was closed and did it anyway, signs or no signs. While you didn’t get any quail, had you, I would consider that poaching, i.e., hunting a closed zone. Why should you get to hunt it if law abiding hunters can’t? Truly if you don’t know what you did wrong ..........

    While I don’t like the closure, since I’m basically burning a C tag, I understand why it was done, and certainly don’t want to be the cause of a fire (car fire, parked over dry grass, etc) that we don’t have the personnel to fight.

    I've seen Valley Quail at 8,000 ft. in the Warner Mountains, and shot quite a few Mountain Quail at 900 ft. in the Smith River drainage near the Oregon border....
