    When I first purchased my farm (162 acres) I could find no quail in the fields. I spoke with an IDNR officer about reintroducing them. He said not to bother since it would not work. He said that they outfitted quail with battery backpacks and antennas and released them, and within 30 days they were all dead. Personally, I think wild quail have a hard enough time surviving without the added strain & weight of batteries and antennae. I decided to pen raise some quail just for the fun of it, and they were doing well until something got into the pen and killed about a hundred of them. The other hundred escaped, and they have repopulated the farm nicely. That was about ten years ago, and I have coveys of quail all over the place.

    Yes, reminds me of punks that used to say "talk to the hand" a few years back and that was quite helpful. It's always refreshing to see someone with so many opinions and so little to say. welcome to ingo.;

    Twenty acres of Native American prairie grass and wildflowers, 100 acres of woods and 42 acres of fields. I purposely left lots of fencerows.

    Sounds like perfect land. Mine is much more wooded and hilly, although I do have scrub clearings.
