I am referring to an area that is somewhat triangular that is very close to my house in Surprise. It is situation between these roads 60/330/74. I recently purchased a SxS and it takes me 10 min. to drive to the gate. The area I am interested in is another 15 min. on trails from the gate. I've scouted almost the entire triangle, both hiking and driving. Yesterday while hiking around one of the hills I came to a wash and saw a few Cotton Tail and then jumped a covey of quail. There were a couple of steers down the wash about 300 yards. I looked for deer sign but only found some old droppings and tracks. I then looked around for a water source but was unsuccessful. My question is this; With all the animals in the area shouldn't there be a water source nearby? I thought rabbits and quail stayed fairly close to water?
