I occasionally receive emails or phone calls from concerned quail hunters and landowners about the decline in bobwhite quail and grassland birds. I always provide them information on what Missouri is doing to restore habitat for bobwhites and grassland birds.
Missouri's quail populations are declining. Help bring them back by establishing mosaics of shrub thickets, bare ground, fields with a diversity of grasses, wildflowers and crops and ungrazed woodlots. This section shows you how.
