The Passing of Gentleman 'Bob

Record #:
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.
