I am still reading over the plan but a couple of things come to mind right off the bat. The Pheasant Management Plan certainly raised the bar for all future wildlife plans and we know no were near as much historically about the Bobwhite as we do about the Ringneck Pheasant and Ruffed Grouse in Pa..
Bobwhite quail are native to PA. A bird that was once common here and provided lots of great hunting sport for pointing dogs and hunters. If any bird needs the attention of the PGC it is the Bobwhite quail. A native species in serious danger that can tell us what is wrong with PA's current land practices that won't allow a native species to survive. If this were a fish or bug there would be millions of federal dollars going into the rescue of this threatened species. Because it's a game bird nobody lifts a finger to help.
