Abstract:
In 1965, North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission surveys indicated a quail harvest by hunters of almost three million birds. By 2002, the number had dropped to around two hundred thousand. The primary cause of the decline is that the birds no longer have the habitat they require. Increasing population demands more land for businesses and homes. Farmers became more efficient with their land and planted crops that didn't benefit quail as corn, wheat, and soybeans had. Fires, which once benefited quail habitats, are now more controlled in the forests. Wilson discuss this decline and what, if anything, can be done to restore the quail population.
