The habitat requirements and management techniques for several popular species of wildlife — quail, rabbit, dove, squirrel, turkey, and deer— are discussed in this chapter. Most of the management practices recommended for these species also will benefit songbirds, frogs, toads, salamanders, turtles, and other species that are essential to the balance of nature. The presence of these other species on your land further enriches your outdoor experiences, and they can provide evidence that you are on the right track with your management.
