MDWFP Bobwhite Quail Hunting Survey
12/14/2023 1:22:08 PM
MDWFP and Mississippi State University are conducting a cooperative research project evaluating quail population response to habitat management and surrounding land use and composition around five Wildlife Management Areas across Mississippi (Black Prairie, Charles Ray Nix, Copiah County, Divide Section, and Marion County WMAs).
We are asking for quail hunter feedback about your hunting experiences on these and any other WMAs you may hunt with a short survey. This survey is voluntary and anonymous; we are not asking for any personal information. We are asking that one survey be completed for a hunting party (if more than one hunter) each time you hunt a WMA.
There are two way to take the survey:
- Click here to take the Bobwhite Quail Hunting Survey
- Take the survey on the MDWFP App:
- Download the MDWFP App
- Click the "Field Guide" button
- At the bottom of the list, select "Bobwhite Quail Hunting Survey"
Although harvest numbers are recorded through the WMA Daily Permit card or Check-in App, those data do not provide us with reliable estimates of the amount of time hunters spend hunting. Nor do they provide information on hunting party size or the number of dogs used that may provide some additional information on hunting effort and success.
This survey ends on March 5, 2024
