Quail Population Trends in Mississippi

 
Wildlife Management Areas
 
Following are 5-year results of quail call-counts conducted on Wildlife Management Areas during June from areas that had data for most of the past five years. Average quail count represents average number of calling quail counted on survey points distributed across each area (the same survey points are counted each year). These counts are conducted on WMAs with upland habitat management potential. However, actual quail habitat quality varies substantially. Data should be interpreted somewhat cautiously. Calling activity can vary within and among years, and many routes are surveyed just one time. Evaluating several years of breeding season call-count data provides relative population trends on a given area.
