Abstract:
One of the state's noblest traditions--quail hunting--is in danger of extinction. Prior to the 1970s, more than 175,000 hunters came to the state and harvested between 2.2 and 2.8 million quail. During the 1995 season only 28,000 hunters harvested 225,000 quail. Jones discusses reasons for the decline and whether it can be reversed. In the state quail are declining at 6.2 percent per year from 1982 to 1991.

Abstract:
Separating the men from the boys took place during a quail hunt in February—not a usual month for hunting, according to the author. As for what else made the occasion unusual, that was the lesson the author learned from the man who took him on his first quail hunt. The lesson: youth is for making mistakes; old age is for impressing the young with their knowledge.
