You can look, but you will not find! If there are any wild quail in this state, they will be in WMUs with no season for quail.

I don't think there are any wild quail left in PA, but the PGC is studying that right now. Who knows maybe there are some left on private property in Adams or Southern Chester Counties.

Re: are there quail in SE/Central PA

Quail is closed to hunting in most of SCPA. There are rumors to some wild pockets left, but I believe that the data to support that is years old. PGC is working on a bringing wild quail back to PA.

You can find a preserve in the state that has put and take quail if that's what you're after.

If you enjoy hunting please find a way to give back to the sport. Our children will thank you.

Re: are there quail in SE/Central PA

My hunting buddy and I know of a small pocket of quail in Lebanon county that aren't allowed to be hunted and have put them up every few years or so. Haven't seen them yet this year. They do exist, but cannot be hunted. We just think it's cool to see them when we do.

Re: are there quail in SE/Central PA

This information is very important to the new quail plan. Please PM me and I will give you the email address of the game bird biologist with the PGC in charge of the project.
