Looking for more timely information on quail management? Check out “The Covey Headquarters” quarterly newsletter. This free publication is published four times a year and is filled with timely habitat management tips, suggestions and success stories from landowners throughout the Midwest. A small group of determined landowners started the newsletter nine years ago at a workshop in northwest Missouri. After receiving multiple questions of “What do I do now?” a group of wildlife biologists started the newsletter to provide timely information to landowners on a more regular basis, like a monthly reminder. As with any upland management, there is always something to do every month. This newsletter is a great reminder of what to do and when to do it, all in the name of quail and upland wildlife.
To subscribe to this newsletter, just send a request to “The Covey Headquarters,” 3915 Oakland Ave., St. Joseph, MO 64506. If you already subscribe, then you should know to start planning your June whistle counts to get an idea of how many quail survived the winter.
