Re: Neglected Bob White Quail
What is the update on the PGC Quail plan? The PGC doesn't even know if we truly have any wild quail and why the wild population disappeared. It would be very long term. The wild pheasant areas look promising but they may only become refuges....hunting those areas may not even be viable...we are already close to 7 years into this...
To answer your other questions....Stocking pen raised birds would get hunters interested in quail. People enjoy hunting pen raised pheasants. Hunting at a preserve is expensive. I'd rather see the PGC diversify their stockings like NJ. I think we can do both....work on wild quail populations and stock pen raised ones for recreation.
Why have a closed season in SEPA? If the PGC isn't going to stock them, up the limits....therefore, we can release them ourselves...
