Quail and Habitat Management

The Bobwhite Quail has been the most threatened game species in the region for the last 50 years. However, new conservation programs, agricultural practices, and information are now available to help landowners develop new habitat, expand existing quail populations, and manage populations to sustain future hunting opportunities. Delta Wildlife has become a leader in quail habitat restoration and management in the region and will assist any member with an interest in helping this struggling game bird. Delta Wildlife owns the only native warm season grass drill in the Delta and uses it to plant quail habitat throughout the Delta. Landowners can request technical assistance or the use of this drill for either private land projects or CRP projects that benefit quail. Delta Wildlife has also developed several brochures and technical guides relevant to this subject. They can be accessed in the RESOURCE section of the website
