Quail Hunting Season

2016 - 2017 Quail Hunting Season:

November 24, 2016 - March 4, 2017; Daily Bag Limit: 8 quail.

We appeared to have another good year for nesting and brood-rearing where cover was suitable for quail production. Sightings of quail broods have been reported from several regions of the state, and some have said they are in greater numbers than they have been in many years. This is good news since it was feared hot, dry weather conditions during mid-summer would have a negative effect on production. However, quail populations remain low statewide in terms of numbers of birds that can provide much quality hunting opportunity. The overall outlook would be for a similar trend to previous years for quail populations. The greatest limiting factor statewide continues to be lack of quality habitat at sufficient scales to produce and sustain noticeable population increases.
