Paul Castelli,a state research biologist,recently unveiled a new state bobwhite action plan that outlined a need to accelerate and improve bobwhite habitat restoration.But the plan also recommended the unthinkable in South Jersey-an indefinite suspension of the regions tradition of wild quail hunting.

Endorsed by the game council,but still subject to a year of public hearings,the plan proposes an end to wild quail pursuits by 2011 in areas south of RT 33.

Is the population in that much of a deline in the area?? Maybe less housing developments and a stop to their expansion should be inplemented first but hey, it's Jersey. What else could you expect but some lunasy.....now if we could only build a nice big wall along the Deleware.....

I think PA is heading in the same direction. If the Quail in PA were not a game bird, it would have been protected years ago amd millions of Federal money would be going to try and preserve it.

It's all about habitat... And it just isn't there! Where there is good quail habitat, like around my father's house in Virginia, there are quail everywhere even with foxes, coyotes, hawks and owls all over the place. But when that habitat isn't there, the predators run wild on them...
