Quail Quest 2 – West Central Missouri

Bill White
We ran into our first covey within 3 minutes of leaving the truck.

During the early part of quail season, I try to concentrate on hunting public land, because most private landowners won’t let me hunt quail til after rifle deer season. So during the second weekend of quail season, I headed with a friend to west – central Missouri to hunt one of our public land prairies. These areas are great for quail as there are typically drainages filled with shrubs and several of the prairies are grazed, which increases the suitability of the cover for quail and other wildlife. It also increases plant diveristy when done appropriately.

Conservation makes Missouri a great place to hunt and fish.
