Quail donors sought for latest translocation study

By November 1, 2018 Articles

We need 200 wild-trapped bobwhites for our latest translocation effort in Erath Co.  The study, which will be headed up by Tarleton graduate student John Palarsky, is funded by the Park Cities and Cross Timbers chapters of Quail Coalition, Tarleton State University, and the landowner.  We need to identify 8 (or more) landowners who will let us trap 25 bobwhites from their property.  Trapping would take place in mid-March but baiting would require access beginning about 15 Jan.  Given the low abundance of quail this year, a “perfect” location would be a deer-hunting property that has quail, but is likely too thick to hunt them.  The closer to Erath Co. the better, but we’re prepared to travel further west.  Contact us at (drollins@quailresearch.org) if you’re willing to cooperate.
