2013-2014 Season Outlook
Statewide, quail populations remain low relative to significant hunting opportunity, although localized areas do exhibit abundant populations. Currently, the summer breeding season will determine production going into fall. Call count surveys will also be conducted to index breeding populations around the state. This information will be updated as it is available. Areas that are regularly managed with prescribed fire and have an abundance of native grasses, wildflowers, and low shrub cover have potential to support and produce quail. Birds will move to thicker cover during the winter, and hunters may not find birds in more open cover. Significant habitat management opportunity exists throughout much of the state, but more large-scale habitat improvement is required to provide sustainable hunting opportunities.
