That would be cool. I can remember hunting in east Texas and quail populations were very good.

I grew up around California quail. The generally like a drier environment. They would probably do better Southwest of Houston and into the hill country.

What ever happened to the Tennessee Reds?

Yep! Not sure how they would compete with the native Blues.


Yes! A Weatherby does kill them deader.

Bought a few of those one time for training.
A big bird.
The ones I had did not fly well.

With the quail will come the hunters.
Prepare for California hunters to buy land and follow.

Doesn't make sense. Why would you move to a state that is importing birds from your state because of diminishing bird populations?

They do well in Baja California and northern Nevada/idaho. I suspect that they would do well in the eastern range of blues.

"He added that a recent economic impact study conducted by Texas at A&M showed that an average quail hunter spends about $8,000 per year and is willing to spend about $250 per bird when hunting."

Says everything right there. Why fix the habitat for the benefit of a native species when you can make money easier by transplanting a species to supplant it? Never fail to disregard long term issues for a short term cash grab. It's the modern way.

Pheasants aren't a native species, yet they are an important addition to many parts of the Panhandle's economy.

from what I read they do well in most all conditions. They have been successfully stocked in lots of places and range all the way up to Canada.
