Love to quail hunt. We have traveled to other states looking for birds. Wish they would come back here.

I use to go all the time, we put birds out though. I don’t believe I’ve seen a covey of wild quail in years.

Quail are making a comeback in the wild. Morris and I know a place with 25-30 large coveys of wild birds. I haven’t been there in 5-6 years so no telling what’s there now. I know two more places with several coveys each

It's amazing to think that any survive. They are ground nesting birds and are near the bottom of the food chain, especially eggs and chicks. Hogs, bobcats, coyotes, opossums, raccoons, foxes, snakes, fire ants, hawks and other raptors, wild dogs/cats, black painters, el chupacabras, maybe the occasional hunter and especially caulds eat quail or quail eggs. Good news is that the pine plantation boom of the 80's - 90's are on the second or third thinnings or are being converted and creating some more traditional habitat. Burning is becoming more commonplace on private property and the replanted long leaf habitat creates ideal cover, brooding and food resources for quail. It will never be where it was, but there may be some areas that see a decent recovery under the right conditions.

Dang you just about nailed it with the predator list but forgot one HUGE one and that is RoundUp!

We hunt pen raised like everyone else in Alabama.
Predator control and land management would go a long way in Alabama if it was a collective effort

Very accurate statement.

I found quail on 5 different WMAs in the state last year. Some of them are not easy walking, but pen raised birds have made us hunters soft.

If people want to help in AL call the National Forest Service and let them know we need smaller burn blocks. The habitat in the NF system is so close, but the burn sizes impedes progress. It applies to Turkeys as well, but not as harmful to them. Additionally, call the Alabama Department of Conservation and express your interest in Quail management on public lands. "The squeaky wheel gets the grease".

There are 9 Quail Forever chapters scattered across the state right now. Please consider getting involved.

It's so fun, but I'd be happy with 5 wild birds. It's a shame they're basically all gone. It went south about 1980.

I haven't killed a quail since I was a kid, late 70's early 80's????
I also don't see the enormous flocks of redwing blackbirds that
used to show up in late fall, that was absolutely mesmerizing.
Times have definitely changed. I miss the freedom of being able
to roam where ever with my pellet gun.

need To find somebody around Clarke County with a dog. We got a place that seems to have a good many wild birds. We jump them pretty often on this place we lease next to our family land. At one time we had over 50 out feeding between 2 food plots. Also got some woodcock. Keep saying I’m gonna hunt them but I won’t be back up till turkey season.

That is awesome spec season ends February 28th here in AL. I like hearing that there are still some wild bird covey's in good numbers in places in the state. That gives hope that one day they might make a come back.
