Wildlife Management Areas
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.
